we've been having such a great time at home revamping our family eating habits. now i'm being honest - i'd let us get so far from where we should be that it has taken serious determination and genuine, consistent communication to begin re-educating our mindset and our palates.i discovered, for… MORE

About this Cook
I'm a mom of five, one-time semi-finalist for The Next Food Network Star, now "focusing" on my photography business and home-educating our awesome growing chefs.
My favorite things to cook
garlic, sweets, and thai!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I can still taste my grandma Margaret's fried peach pies, grandpa's tomatoes fresh and warm from the garden sun (eaten whole while standing at the kitchen window)... Grandma Rose's five cheese macaroni and marinated hearts of palm. Now we're making our own traditions with dad's jalapeno mac n' cheese and my son's made-from-scratch-with-no-recipe pie crust (and any filling that strikes his fancy!).
My cooking triumphs
Learning to cook at all! Learning to love chicken even when I've held it raw. Enjoying bananas and brussels sprouts! Teaching my kiddos to cook and letting them experiment, without my input, to create their own masterpieces.
My cooking tragedies
The ginormous bowl of tuna pasta salad (which I detest!) which got pitched directly after I made it, on a pregnancy-induced-craving whim... the "vinegar and sour cream" crock-pot chicken I made my new husband of two weeks, which he couldn't choke down!

Melissa's Kale Salad
as it happens, i was elbow deep in preparing this salad when unexpected guests showed up at our front door. i created pretty photos and served it up for lunch, and they all begged for the recipe! i recreated it on my blog with some tweaks and we will make this again and again. yay, melissa!

Smoked Sausage with Potatoes, Sauerkraut & Ale
For some reason, my potatoes did not want to cook and this ended up going a lot longer than recommended. That said, it was a warming comfort-meal on a cold night, and as a sauerkraut lover, I'll make it again. We used a gluten-free hard apple cider and the combination was delicious!

Applesauce Bread Pudding
As-is, the recipe was a bit lacking. Our bread pudding experience involves rich, dense, buttery goodness, so I made some significant tweaks. We started by making this gluten-free with gluten-free cinnamon raisin bread and gluten-free oats. I added cinnamon and replaced the brown sugar with maple sugar in the custard mixture. For the topping, I added almond flour and butter as well as nutmeg. To take this over the top, we baked it in an iron skillet that had been prepared with melted butter.
