About this Cook
I'm 31. Married to a soldier. Mama to an adorable 4yo daughter and an almost 1yo son. Grew up in Indiana, moved to Chicago, lived near Seattle, now in Georgia, preparing to move to Hawaii. I've been cooking since I was quite young. I don't remember a time when I wasn't cooking something. I loved to pretend I had my own cooking show! My daughter loves to be in the kitchen with me and can help with quite a few tasks. She's been in the kitchen helping me since she was about 18 months old.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook sweets! I don't care to eat most of them but I enjoy making them. I also love to cook bread and anything on the grill.

Bacon Ranch Chicken Skewers
I didn't have ranch dressing so I used the Dry Ranch Style Seasoning for Dip recipe (here on AR) and sprinkled that all over the chicken. I've made them straight after seasoning and also letting them set for a few hours. Great both ways. I couldn't picture how to do the bacon, so the video was very helpful. This has become a must-have when we have friends over, they all ask for it.

Marinade for Chicken
My kids' favorite chicken recipe. I put the raw chicken and marinade into a freezer bag and freeze it.

Quick and Easy Brownies
The first time I made this I cut back on the cocoa because most brownies are too chocolatey for my tastes. Mistake! The cocoa taste barely came through. I made it again with the correct amount and they are perfect. If you like things really chocolatey, I'd add some chunks of chocolate to the batter. I freeze this batter in two 8x8 pans. I bake from frozen and add about 8-10 minutes onto the cooking time. I love having a pan in the freezer for last-minute potlucks, etc.
