About this Cook
My philosophy is that our kids should (operative word) eat what we eat. I see those Kid Cuisine meals in the store. They may be fine on occasion or in a pinch but I know some parents cater to their kid's palates. I don't have time to cook multiple meals and want my family to eat healthy food together. And since I'm doing the work, I want to make sure it's something I like to eat, too. I think meals together are important, eating is a social activity as much as nutriative, and food and eating should be enjoyable. I will comment on my kids' acceptance of recipes whenever I rate one.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
BBQ'd marinated flank steak for birthday dinners. Pie a la mode for breakfast (it's a treat, not a regular event). Tuna casserole using jackstraw potatos.

Slow Cooker Pinto Beans
Did not use celery because I didn't have any. Used 1/2 pound cooked bacon instead of ham and a 1/2 a jar of pimentos instead of bell pepper because I had an open jar on hand. It was super. Would make it the same way again - especially the bacon instead of ham. Also, cooked it on low for 11 hr and was perfect.
