About this Cook
I'm a homemaker with kids and a wonderful husband. I've been trying to get the whole family eating healthier. Shopping the perimeter of the store and adding more organic items when I can. It's a challenge but totally worth it!
My favorite things to cook
I like to make things that aren't too complicated. Simple, delicious food is what I aim for.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I really don't have any, I had to "wing it" on my own, my parents were the type that didn't want the kids underfoot when they were in the kitchen.
My cooking triumphs
I'm not really sure... I cook, the family eats... Is that a triumph LOL?
My cooking tragedies
There are wayyyyyyy too many to list here, LOL! I just keep trying new things and sometimes they work but sometimes they don't.

Fantastic Black Bean Chili
Really liked this. Way too much liquid though so next time I'll probably drain at least 1 can of the beans. I also used Ro-Tel tomatoes instead of plain crushed tomatoes as that was what I had at the time.

Black Bean and Cucumber Salad
This is soooo good! I needed something to do with the cucumbers mom gave me from her garden and this was perfect! It's easy to prepare & perfect for a potluck or picnic too!

Garden Fresh Tomato Soup
Loved this! Quick & easy too, a great way to use all those tomatoes I've got growing in the yard.
