Minnie (and) Me
About this Cook
I'm a wife to one and a mom to three - a first-grader son and pre-school identical twin daughters. I don't get the time to cook as much as I like to, but I get the chance to experiment now and then.
My favorite things to cook
I love Italian food and could cook it all day. I'd like to tackle making my own pasta some time! I'd also love to learn how to make sushi, although I think I may be stretching my abilities...
My favorite family cooking traditions
Tortilla soup, chili and beans-and-rice when it's cold out!
My cooking triumphs
Baking my own bread and creating things from scratch.
My cooking tragedies
Too many to count! I've set of the smoke detector more than I care to admit and my husband knows that I when I say that a dish I am preparing is going to taste, "rustic," that it's code for "burned."

Toasted Pumpkin Seeds with Sugar and Spice
New family tradition! Each year my family roasts the pumpkin seeds from our Jack O'Lanterns and we've used various recipes...all of which were good, but unmemorable. This is a fantastic spin on our tradition, mixing a sweet taste with a salty kick. Wish Halloween came around more than once a year!

Tropical Shrimp Dipping Sauce
This was pretty good! It's very sweet -- my kids kept saying, "It tastes like ice cream!" -- but it's perfect for a summer BBQ. Since my family won't eat shrimp, I pan-seared some chunks of chicken, seasoned with a little garlic, salt and pepper. I served it with brown rice and a green salad, making a lovely, light meal on a hot summer day!

Jennie's Heavenly Slow Cooker Chicken
Wow...this was fantastic and made enough for delicious left-overs the next day. I didn't bother with heating everything in a saucepan...I just mixed it all together and poured it over the chicken. It was perfect! Served with pasta and a salad, this was a meal that will be used a LOT in our home!
