The House Chef
About this Cook
I am a mother of 8. I work in adult foster care; before that I was a preschool teacher for 8 years. My husband also works in adult foster care and is in the National Guard.
My favorite things to cook
I like cooking BIG... sort of a must in my house. Budget cooking (also a must). I try to impliment a "new food night" at least once per month in my house where we try something we have never had before.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Pancake breakfast on Sunday mornings.
My cooking triumphs
When I was 16 I spent over 8 hours picking crab apples, washing them, cutting & coring... making the pie crust from scratch... When I presented my crabapple pie to the family no one wanted to try it. When they finally did it was gone in less than 10 minutes & they were all asking for more
My cooking tragedies
When I was 10 I tried to invent a new malt flavor. Grape juice concentrate with icecream... not good. Dad tried to pretend he liked it, but was very thankful when I said it was horrible.

Lentil Cakes (Patties)
I'm making this recipe for the second time now. My family just LOVES it. So much better than a store bought "veggie burger" - and so good for you too. Thanks for sharing this with us!

Monte Cristo Sandwich - the Real One
I've made this recipe a couple of times now. Everyone loves it just the way it is! The kids ask for it as their special birthday dinner & my neighbor keeps asking me when I'm making them again so she can come over for a bite. She said she's tried other Monte Cristo Sandwiches at restaurants and none come close to being as delicious as mine ~ THANK YOU so much for this recipe!
