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!!!
