About this Cook
Forced to learn to cook when I married my studly hubby 13 years ago. Getting better everyday. He's a happy man, 30 pounds heavier than the day we married! haha
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook everything! I just love getting in the kitchen, slicing and dicing, and making the house smell yummy.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandparents recipes are some of the best Ive ever tasted, and I love making tehm. Grandmas Chicken Chardon is posted on this site to rave reviews.
My cooking triumphs
Chili! I found a recipe I liked, tweaked it to my prefrences, and everyone LOVES it.
My cooking tragedies
Left the chicken and dumplings on the stove to cool. Only thing was, it was an electric stove, so it didnt exactly cool, it scorched. Came home from lamaze, starved and ready for dumplings, only to find it smelling like a chimney. Had to throw the whole thing away, including the pot!

Best Beef Dip Ever
Wow! These were to die for! I LOVE beef dips, and I was impressed! I did add a little extra garlic (our prefrence) and did use half beef broth, half water, insstead of all water. Also added a couple of tablespoons of worsteschire per other reviews. I only had time to cook this on hi for 5 hours and it was perfect. I used a gravy seperator to get the fat out of the au jus, and it worked perfectly. Lori, SHARE this recipe with your family and friends! Who does that?

Play Dough Cookies
Absolutely awesome! Kids and parents went nuts! Used another reviewers suggestion and used store bought cookie dough. What a time saver! Also made sure to use concentrated food coloring, a must. Let the kids play with the "play dough" and make their own cookies. Too fun. Make sure to bake long enough, soft cookies will fall off the stick. Cant wait to make orange and black for Halloween, red and green for Christmas, etc. They make adorable gifts when wrapped in cellphane and curling ribbon. I stuck them in a flower pot with styrafoam in the bottom, and gave them as gifts. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe.

Butter Brickle Frozen Delight
TO DIE FOR! I made this for the butterscotch lovers in my family. They went crazy! My brother in law showed up at my house with the ingredients and begged me to make it for him again. Only changed the caramel to butterscotch, caust thats our prefrence. TOO GOOD! Thank you!
