About this Cook
I work full time so I don't always have the energy to cook in the evening and those are the days a slow cooker is my best friend. I love to cook for people and seeing them enjoy a meal or bringing baked stuff to work - I work with all women and they love to eat!
My favorite things to cook
My family loves pasta so I cook alot of chicken recipes with pasta - my daughter loves "country" food like black eyed peas and biscuits and chicken and dumplings so I do that for her - I love to cook on the grill, too - I'll cook anything except a recipe that calls for yeast - I don't do yeast - it never works for me! I love to bake when the kids are home...
My favorite family cooking traditions
The only tradition that we have is that I make Italian sausage subs on Christmas Eve. My husband is Polish/Italian and his mother made them every Christmas Eve for her family so we've carried that on, too.

Garden Fresh Tomato Soup
I just made this, doubling, with 6# of tomatoes - I didn't use cloves and like another person, I used chopped carrots instead of sugar and I also added 6 cloves of chopped garlic was really good and the roux made it even nicer - freezing it and looking forward to fresh tomato soup in the middle of winter! I think dill or basil would be a nice addition at the end. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

Strawberry Bread
This is by far the best strawberry bread recipe I've found over the years - the pecans are a very nice touch - as others suggested, I added alot more strawberries - probably making it almost 4 cups of them - also a few drops of vanilla extract - just picked another big basket of berries so I'm about to make two more loaves!
