About this Cook
Very happily married,a late in life mama to a beautiful 2 yr old daughter and 4 stepchildren (25,23,4 &3) and I also have 3 sweet goldens and an orange tabby.I am busy with F/T work,P/T college student & active in church. I don't have a great deal of free time :)
My favorite things to cook
My family loves to eat so that makes it makes it fun to try new things. I am focusing on being more budget conscientious as well as incorporating a more healthful repertiore of vegetables & fruit in our diet. My husband thinks my best meals are the ones that I just "create" from what is in the fridge & pantry.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Weekends are when I really have more time to put a great meal on the table. I enjoy cooking and baking based on the seasons of the year.
My cooking triumphs
I haven't burned the house down yet!
My cooking tragedies
The most horrific recipe that comes to mind was a gingerbread cake that was bitter from too much baking soda and salt. I've had as many failures as triumphs and I'm lucky my husband is such a great sport about eating the misadventures.

Braised Balsamic Chicken
A great weeknight dish that you can easily make in 30 minutes with basic ingredients from your pantry and freezer. This deemed a "keeper" by my husband. I served it with mashed potatoes (I needed to get them used up) and braised spinich.
