About this Cook
Cooking to me is like free therapy! Well, I guess it's not completely free since I have to buy the ingrediants for my dishes. The feeling I get from seeing such satisfaction on my family and friends faces is priceless. If I stop cooking it means my hands have fallen off. I hope this never happens. Haha!
My favorite things to cook
I love grilling. If I can cook it on a grill I am a happy woman. I also love roasting foods. I cook a mean Lemon Pepper Tofu from what I here. Really, I love to cook anything and everything that sounds good to me and my family.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother always made a delicious pot roast. I enjoy trying to replicate this dish however, I think it's impossible to recreate such perfection. Have you ever heard of a poor boy sandwich? Well, my family came up with a poor boy soup and we call it Shell Soup. Most would likely pass on this soup but, I absolutely love it. Shell soup consists of small pasta shells or elbow macaroni, the water it was boiled in, hunts tomato sauce, salt and pepper, and some like to add parmesan and butter. Sounds strange, I know but, it's the equivalent of chicken soup to my family. Try it sometime!
My cooking triumphs
I have never been big on baking. It always seems to be too long and involved. Recently I tried making a pie crust and it came out really great! I couldn't believe it. I used a recipe ffrom this site called Ruth's Grandma's pie crust. This recipe was super easy to follow and I would recommend it to anyone. Thanks Ruth's Grandma!

Slow Cooker Pork and Sauerkraut
This was very good! My husband had thirds. That's how good it was. I followed the recipe exactly aside from adding chicken broth instead of water. This was very easy to make too. Thanks for sharing! I'll definitely be making this again.

Pina Colada Ice Pops
I really liked these but, they could stand to be a bit sweeter. Next time I'll add pineapple juice and some dried coconut. Overall, I thought that this recipe makes a good base for a great popsicle.

Hash Brown Casserole for the Slow Cooker
I rated this recipe with four stars because it was really good. Although I did enjoy it, I think next time I'll add less sour cream as it seemed to overpower most of the other ingredients. Maybe in place of one cup of sour cream I'll add one can of cream of chicken soup. Taking the advice from previous reviews I used shredded cheddar because I absolutely despise processed cheese of any kind. This was good advice! Thanks to all of you that recommended that change.
