About this Cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
Love cooking with my daughter (16) and son (9).
My cooking triumphs
Having one of my kids say "Dad, this is the best ____ ever." Or, my daughter cooking a birthday surprise for me and me managing to stay out of the kitchen most of the time even though it was killing me.
My cooking tragedies
Setting off the smoke alarm and getting visited by the fire department in my apartment twice- once cooking burgers for my mom and kids- once browning Italian sausage for a soup.

Slow Cooker Taco Soup
I made this for my mom and my 14 year old and we all loved it. Made as directed except I substituted chicken broth for the water.

Baked Ziti I
I substituted ground turkey but otherwise made as directed and this was quite good. It definitely would not fit in a 9x13 pan. I had a slightly bigger pan (9x15 maybe?) and it fit perfectly.

Slow Cooker Thai Pork with Peppers
I made exactly as directed and it was very good. I shredded the pork chops into medium sized chunks after about five hours, then cooked for another hour, during which time the pork absorbed some of the sauce. I served it over brown rice the first night, then over some whole wheat pasta the next night. I will definitely make again.
