About this Cook
I've been married for 6 years. I'm from the Midwest and spent the last 5 years living on the East Coast. Now I'm happily back in the center of the country, living in TEXAS!! I've never been a picky eater, but I hate fast food. I like to find a recipe and make it our own. all recipes has helped make some great traditions in our house!!
My favorite things to cook
Since I work full time, I love to use the crockpot during the week when I can. I am also a big fan of trying different seafood recipes along with different ethnic recipes. But being from the midwest, my husband and I love casseroles!
My favorite family cooking traditions
1. Sunday Dinner is mandatory. 2. Summer is meant for grilling everything (including watermelon)
My cooking triumphs
I've made several holiday turkey's on my own with no help. I don't have any extended family to learn from so it's required a lot of research. But I can take a 12# turkey and make a fabulous dinner, leftovers, 4 turkey pot pies for the freezer and amazing turkey stock that lasts a good while. I waste very little in the pantry/fridge!!
My cooking tragedies
Me + Meatloaf = Disaster every time!!

Heavenly Meatloaf with Blue Cheese, Mushrooms, and Spinach
An interesting twist on Meatloaf. The blue cheese taste was not "blue cheesy". It gave it a creamy, moist recipe. It took a long time for this to cook. Much longer than the recommended time. And the recipe doesn't state whether it should be covered or uncovered. Now that I know, I can plan my meal better. But the taste was really good and really worth it! Will make it again.

Roasted Kohlrabi
This was really good. Very easy. We made it as a snack on a rainy Saturday afternoon while playing board games. A much healthier alternative to chips and other snack foods. It would be fine as a side dish as well.

Butternut and Apple Harvest Soup
I loved this! High in fiber and great taste!!! Wonderful fall soup. It did come out thick which was bothersome to my husband but didn't bother me at all. For his, I thinned it out with a little white wine and water.
