About this Cook
I am a wife to a wonderful man and mother to an intelligent, beautiful daughter. I am trying to improve my "house mother" skills for my family. We live in a smallish town in East TX (I am a 4th generation native Texan) and I discoverd that we have a very nice (if small) farmer's market. I like to go and look even if I don't buy anything. I would like to have a garden someday so I tried a tomato plant this year (to get my feet wet) and it died a terrible death :) lol! I may just stick to cooking!
My favorite things to cook
Anything easy! I love quick breads and pasta! Carbs!!! lol!
My favorite family cooking traditions
We almost never go "traditional" for anything and its great! Ex: we have Mexican food for Thanksgiving often. My mom always made Christmas candy when I was young and then stopped after a while. I am trying to start that tradition again.
My cooking triumphs
Learning to cook at all :) Update: recently made a veggie lasagna that turned out awesome!
My cooking tragedies
My husband always tells me how great the things I make are so I guess there haven't been any terrific tragedies (or he's just a really good man) :)

Fresh Asparagus Soup
Very good soup! It was a little bit more work than I thought but it was worth it. I boiled the veggies until they were very very soft and it was not stringy at all after pureeing. I also added a little bit of garlic because we love it! Used 2% milk and homemade yogurt. One reviewer said that it is good with broccoli too so I want to try that next. Yummy creamy soup!

Crackers a la Yvette
My friend and I make something very similar. We use a package of Ranch dip and 2 tbsp of dry dill weed. Put crackers in 2 big brown paper sacks (this allow the oil to soak into the crackers enough to flavor them but you are not left with a glass jar/crackers full of oil at the end). Shake well to coat and leave for 24 hours. Delicious!
