About this Cook
I am a wife, mother of two, and a 2nd grade teacher. I like to involve my two young daughters in the kitchen. I love to read and find new recipes.
My favorite things to cook
I like to bake cookies, cakes, and brownies. Since I am so busy during the week I usually cook casseroles or slow cooker meals. I enjoy making southern style meals, while my husband is the italian chef!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I enjoy making memories in the kitchen baking with my girls. I also love to make a yummy breakfast on Christmas morning.

Amazing Crusted Chicken
My family liked this recipe. The chicken was really moist and I liked using the mayo, although I only used about 2 tablespoons. I didn't have the french fried onions or sesame seeds so didn't include those.

Delicious Chicken Casserole
My family enjoyed this and it was easy to make. My picky daughter ate her whole helping and requested it again next week! I added one more cup of rice and didn't use butter. To me it was a little bland, so next time I will probably add a can of broccoli cheese soup like other reviewers. After tasting this, that seems like it would be a good addition. I will make this again with that change! :)

Cheesy Italian Tortellini
Even though I didn't have all the ingredients, it still turned out terrific! The whole family loved it and I added it to our "Family Favorites" file! Note: I didn't use mushrooms or the tomatoes because I didn't have those on hand, so I'm sure it would taste even better with them. Also, I used two cups of an italian cheese blend in place of the cheddar and mozarella.
