About this Cook
I am an elementary school teacher who gets home exhausted after running around 21 students all day. My favorite thing to do is use the slow cooker and walk in to a meal that's ready to eat! I also enjoy trying new recipes . . . which makes this a great site for me. My pre-requisites for a good recipe are few ingredients and even fewer steps. I like it easy!!!!
My favorite things to cook
I have several specialties, many of which I got on this site. People ask me all the time to make the California Chicken Spaghetti and the Chocolate Cavity Maker Cake. I always give credit to the website, but in my circle both recipes are known as "Esther's". The purchase of a wok recently has piqued my interest in stir fry as well. I love the one-pot cooking and especially love the fact that you can literally throw whatever you've got in there and it'll usually turn out well.

Doggie Biscuits I
This recipe makes a lot, so I always share with my dog-owning friends. My dog and her doggy friends all love them!

Chocolate Crinkles II
My friends enjoyed these, but I thought they'd be a little chewier. I'm going to try them again because it might be my oven. Cooking them a little less time might do the trick.

Tex-Mex Pork
I made this with one change: I swapped the tomato sauce for chipotles in adobo sauce. The chipotles are whole and have to be chopped, which I do in my mini chopper/food processor. This change made the pork spicier and smokier. It was awesome!!!

Hard to believe, but many kids will be back in school at the end of the month. Get ready.

You won't believe all the things you can do with cauliflower. It's a great low-carb option.
