About this Cook
I absolutely love to cook! I love trying new things. I would not say I'm a picky eater- I'll eat just about anything. I'm originally from the south so I definitely miss a home cooked southern meal!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake just about anything. I love making chicken, a side dish, and a veggie on the stove top. My hubby really likes soup so I've been trying to find new recipes for him. I also really love my crock pot. It makes things easier with having two little ones!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Growing up we always had pizza on Friday's. Now that my son is getting older I would like to start something similar to this. We always ate at the dinner table too. I don't think we were even allowed to eat anywhere else. When my husband and I bought our first home I made sure to have a large enough table for everyone, including company, to sit at the table. No excuses to eat anywhere else! =)
My cooking triumphs
My homemade sausage balls and my chocolate bowl dessert is always requested. Adults and children alike can NEVER get enough.
My cooking tragedies
I always try and cook a meal for my new mommy friends (friends that just had baby). I was cooking my homemade cornbread muffins and realized I was running late. Hubby was rushing me as well, the timer went off for the cornbread, and I took them out of the oven and ran out of the house. As soon as we got home I tried one (we had a couple left over) and they weren't even done (runny in the middle)! I still haven't asked the friend about them...too embarrassed still!!!

Quick and Easy Green Chile Chicken Enchilada Casserole
Yummy! My hubby and I really enjoyed this. I halved the recipe. First, I cooked the chicken on the stove with the garlic salt & TSP of EVOO. I mixed my diced chicken with the sour cream and added 1 tsp of taco seasoning to the mixture. Layered 1 small can of enchilada sauce on bottom, followed by torn tortillas, then chicken mixture, then cheese in 8X8 dish. Covered and baked 45 minutes. Served w/ Spanish rice.

Swiss Chicken Casserole II
Yummy! I sprayed the crockpot with Pam, added frozen chicken, topped with Swiss, then soup mixture, stuffing and last poured the butter on top. Cooked low for 7 hours. Added a frozen bag of broccoli during the last hour. Thanks for sharing!

Pretzel Turtles
Yummy! I normally use the round pretzel rings (purchase from Meijer) and drizzle with white chocolate (melt white chocolate chips w/ a little crisco, dip fork into chocolate and drizzle onto pretzels). Thanks for sharing. :-)
