About this Cook
I use to work in out local school system as an Ed Tech until i got hurt and now I'm a stay at home wife, homemaker. My husband and I have been married for 11 years. We own a huge old house that we've done many updates to and it is awesome now. We have a huge backyard and an in ground pool that we all have lots of fun in. I have two grown children in there early 30's they each have one child. I love to cook for them still.
My favorite things to cook
Paint, planting things, play games on the computer, shop on the computer. Go on trips with my husband. We've been to Europe, San Fransico, Florida, Chicago. He's my best friend and we laugh all all the time.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The kids love lasagna, and a turkey or chicken dinner with all the trimmings. Apple pie is the most asked for thing.

Pumpkin Pie Squares
Made these following the recipe except I threw in the egg yolks and forgot to spray the pan..but..they didnt' stick at all. These are delicious my husband and I loved them. Can't wait to try these out on the kids when they are here for Thanksgiving.

Chicken Pot Pie IX
I've been making this pot pie for awhile. Only I use the leftovers from a baked chicken, cook the veggies - carrots, celery, onion, and potatoes in Swanson chicken broth. Then boil the carcass down and use that for broth (yummy). I make a roux from the butter and flour add the 1 2/3 cup of broth and 2/3 cups of milk...also I add a tablespoon of cornstarch to the flour when making the roux; I like it cause it makes it a little thicker. Add leftover carrots, frozen peas, celery, chicken and onion. PERFECT. A little spice like basil and parsley is also good.

Miracle Baking Powder Pie Crust
I haven't tasted this yet but I'll bet it will be good. As for the water... not happen...I had to add about a 1/2 cup more. If you work the dough to much it gets tough. Put in 1/4 teaspoon salt. Used 1/2 cup shortening and 1/2 cup butter. Rolled out great and it was a little thick but, I made chicken pot pie so that will be OK. But if it was a fruit pie I'd have lots of crust left over, because I'd roll it out thinner. I would use left over pie crust for cinnammon rolls for the kids, they love those things.
