About this Cook
I'm a busy mom of two & married to a great guy! I love to cook but don't always like cleaning up the mess! I look for simple but still very flavorful meals that everyone in my house can enjoy.
My favorite things to cook
Healthy stuff!!! I am passionate about providing good, healthful food for my family. We grow a garden every year so that my children know where food comes from, and veggies are always put on our plates! We love italian, mexican, chinese, & family fun food.
My favorite family cooking traditions
It can get a little crowded but I love when we cook together as a family. We do pizza night & tacos night quite a bit. But we keep them homeade so that they get good food & get to try them in new ways.
My cooking triumphs
I am not a baker!! Baking is an exact science. But, I have successfully made potato-buttermilk rolls from scratch on more than one occasion. Even my mother-in-law & grandmother give me credit for how delicious they are.
My cooking tragedies
My first loaf of bread was HORRIBLE!! I think that it weighed as much as I did. According to my baking gurus, I killed the yeast! I also have a tendency to burn things when I don't set the timer!

Mama's Asian Chicken and Rice
Delicious-I doubled the sauce but didn't double the crushed red pepper. It was sweet for the kiddos but still spicy enough for my husband. If you like General Tso's Chicken this is a nice, unfried version. Making the recipe again this week!

Artichoke & Spinach Dip Restaurant Style
A great appetizer to make!! The only change I made was on the suggestion of others to put the full 8 oz. of cream cheese in. I put it in a small crockpot to keep warm & it went quickly. Very good flavor!!!

Awesome Red Wine Pot Roast
All the flavors tasted really well. If you bake this in the oven you really need to babysit it & check on it often. I had to add more liquid several times because it had all been absorbed. The meat was sooooo tender & the taste was wonderful.
