About this Cook
I am Insurance Agent/CSR. I am married to an Agricultural Drafter (unemployed at the moment). We have been married for 10 years. We have 2 little 4 legged children Bitty Bitz & Bandit.

I cook every night and love coming up with recipes using ordinary ingredients while sticking to a very tight budget.

Hawaiian Chicken Wings
These took a lot of time to prepare, and I thought at first it wasn't going to taste very good. But in the end they turned out very yummie. I used reg. sized legs and wings and added a diced jalapenos to the sauce for some kick!

Deep Dish Alfredo Pizza
My hubby has been asking for a white pizza for our friday night pizza night. I didn't make the crust but the Alfredo Sauce is to DIE for!!! and pretty easy to put together. We had our pizza with sausage and black olives.. Yummie :) Will make again!
