So apparently moving to Seattle to escape the dreadful summer months in Eastern Oregon wasn't such a novel idea......especially this summer! Record breaking temperatures are SOARING to well over 100 degrees and they say it may not stop anytime soon! See, this wouldn't be a problem but those who… MORE

About this Cook
Hello!! My name is Jonae and I am forever married to my wonderful husband, Spencer. We live in Washington state where I work for a financial institution as a Member Consultant and my husband is in his 5th year serving in the US Navy. We made the "big step" and bought our first home not too long ago and someone (as in me) is already getting baby fever. We want to go on one last trip before we start having kids so we are planning on visiting Pisa, Italy and attending a week long cooking school there called, Toscana Saporita ( where you study the unique nature of Tuscan cuisine. We are very excited and plan on making that trip in April. So, as for now we just live in our home with our furry Golden Retriever son, Yogi and enjoying our time together. I LOVE cooking for my husband and it's become not only a hobby, but an obsession. We have gone from eating out just about every night to me cooking a new, wonderful recipe from AR and eating out MAYBE once a mont
My favorite things to cook
Where to I start? I started cooking using just my crock pot (it was so easy) and now it's starting to collect dust in my cupboard because I never use it anymore. I have now grown very fond of making marinades for pork, chicken and steaks. This site has opened me up to so many new and wonderful recipes that I honestly can say I don't have any favorites to cook. I hope to one day call myself a professional and hopefully be experienced enough in all styles of cuisine. A far fetched dream, but I believe that you only go as far as you dream big!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love cooking for people....whether it be a crowd or just another girlfriend or two. I used to not care what I put in to my food but now I try and be really conscience of the ingredients I use to make my dishes healthier. As for traditions, I really don't have any...just make good food for good people and have a good time while doing it!!
My cooking triumphs
That would probably be my first successful Pot Roast. So yummy!! I cooked it for nearly 16 hours so you can imagine how much we were tortured with that smell lingering around the house all night and day.
My cooking tragedies
Oh I have made my share of horrible dishes. My most recent one would be trying to do a chicken roll up with mozzarella cheese tomato soup and sour cream. It turned out nasty......enough said.

Grandma's Green Bean Casserole
I LOVED THIS RECIPE!! Only thing I did different was I sauteed the onions in butter before I mixed everything together. I also only used about a cup of cheddar cheese and didn't put any on top. I am a sucker for French Fried Onions so instead of the cracker topping (which I am sure is amazing) I used cheddar cheese French Fried Onions. Sooooo good. I will NEVER go back to the cream of mushroom recipe again. Can't wait to make this one for Christmas.
