Me and my babes
About this Cook
Cooks for 6 inclues me, my husband, and my 4 kids all under 8 years old. I'm a stay at home mom, and making wholesome, delicious meals from scratch is really enjoyable to me. I love cooking for friends/groups/parties. Watching people eat my creations and smiling is the best feeling.
My favorite things to cook
Oh I love to cook just about anything. If I can make it from scratch it's all the better. I feel better knowing what is actually in the food I feed my family. And I love trying new dishes, some that I've never even heard of before!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Well I don't really have any traditions other than sitting at the table as a family. I love having my babies in the kitchen with me helping out- they LOVE stirring and mixing and putting the ingredients together. And licking the beaters is always so much fun!
My cooking triumphs
I'm finally learning to tweak recipes and it turn out good. I started making a two week menu so I could cut cost and time at the grocery store, and that has worked out so well for me! My Chinese orange chicken was delicious! Cranberry Chutney was awesome-even without fresh cranberries. My scratch ravaolis were fabulous!
My cooking tragedies
Oh man, I made some baked breaded vegetables the other night that were so bland and rubbery they were nearly inedible. Maybe because I used frozen vegetables instead of fresh, I don't know... but it just wasn't good.

Carrot Cake III
This was very yummy! I even subbed 1 cup of the shredded carrot for 1 cup of shredded yellow crookneck squash. I'll sub that for 1 cup shredded zucchini next time :) Definitely a keeper!

Easy Snack Wraps
I love that this is a very basic recipe that anyone can alter to their liking. I, personally, prefer spinach to lettuce, and enjoy playing with a variety of veggies- bellpeppers, olives, jalapenos, green onions, cucumbers, avocado... the list goes on! Play with different types of cold cuts as well! Or even leftover shredded chicken! Add some mustard! Hot sauce! Whatever you're in the mood for.

Shredded Beef Enchiladas
This was VERY delicious! The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because to me, an enchilada just isn't an enchilada with some sort of sauce draped over the top. So after I wrapped my tortillas up in their meat and cheese sauce goodness, and laid them all out in the casserole dish, I poured a can of red enchilada sauce all over them, and then baked them. The cheese sauce inside is incredible! I love using roasted hatch chilies, and was even short on sour cream so subbed 1 cup of plain greek yogurt. It's a time consuming recipe, but very worth it!
