About this Cook
I am a young SAH Mom of 2 toddlers.I love baking,and getting them to bake with me!

My cooking tragedies
When I was 10,my mom used to let me be in charge of cooking pot roasts. She always told me to use whatever spices I wanted to on there. Well,one night,I decided to experiment,and loaded the roast with cinnamon! Safe to say,it wasn't too tasty,but they ate it up anyways!

Marinated Baked Pork Chops
Made this for supper tonight with high hopes from all the reviews, and honestly, I didn't care for it. My hubby and 5year old son enjoyed it. But my 3yr old and I didn't really like it. It had somewhat of a smoky taste that I didn't care for,and thought it left a slight aftertaste. I honestly cant see myself making it again.( I did make it exactly as stated, but tripled the recipe for 5 thin chops. I ended up thickening the sauce with some cornstarch so we could put it over rice. There was just enough sauce that way I found.)

Homemade Shake and Bake Mixture
This is awesome! I'm someone who hates shake and bake,but this was omg delicious! I didn't have any celery or garlic salt,so cut those out. I used garlic powder,and onion powder in place. I made this last week for the first time,and we're having it again this week! It's super easy and I just can't say enough on how I love it!

Basic Baked Spaghetti
I found this recipe when I was trying to come up with a different way to eat spaghetti. I love it,but my boyfriend hates it. I followed the basis for this recipe,which was my own spaghetti(meat sauce with garlic,onions,italian seasoning,etc) and I layered this recipe. Meat sauce,spaghetti,cheese,meat sauce,spaghetti,cheese. Well,we LOVED it. Even my boyfriend adores this recipe and asks me to make it all the time. It makes "normal" spaghetti taste so boring and plain,that I'll never make spaghetti unless it is baked again!
