About this Cook
Wife and mother of one. Love to entertain country-style. Very involved in my community, lots of pot lucks, shin-digs and gift platters. I like to cook big and make it last a few meals.
My favorite things to cook
Absolute favorite is mexican food, but I like to make it healthy. I love mixed textures; crunchy, creamy, chewy. And like my profile name, I never make the same thing twice- at least not the exact same way. Much of that comes from living 40 miles from the grocery store and just learning to make due with what is in the pantry.
My favorite family cooking traditions
With a profile name of "Never the same thing twice", tradition is not my thing.
My cooking triumphs
Serving a hot lunch to 35-40 teenagers once a week for the entire school year and having them all say I was a good cook.
My cooking tragedies
So much tragedy in the world today.

I was cruising All Recipes for something different to do with hamburger. Wow! At first my family was skeptical as they looked at the contents of their bowl, one bite and we are all Picadillo lovers now. Even made it for company only to find out that one of the guests was sensitive to spicy foods. She ate it without any problems - or indigestion after wards. I don't always have all of the ingredients on hand, but it is a very forgiving recipe and always tastes delicious.

Oven Pancakes
These have become a staple at my house. We have doubled, tripled and quadripled the recipe - the only thing to watch is that you really beat those eggs. We have nick-named these Papa's hat because when done in a round dish, it resembles a sombrero. We usually skip the lime juice.

Clone of a Cinnabon
Used this recipe exactly for a dutch oven cook-off and won first place with it. Everyone raves about these Cinnamon rolls. When I first made them, my husband was startled at how much cinnamon and brown sugar went on them - thought it was going to be too much. One taste and he said, "Don't change a thing."
