About this Cook
I am a SAHM and I absolutely love being here to take care of my family. I have two little ones, a boy and a girl and a wonderful husband who tolerates my cooking 'tests and surprises' with a smile and sometimes a helpful suggestion.
My favorite things to cook
Dinner meals and desserts are my favorite things. I am currently on a pie kick so I have my eye out for some new ideas.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The classic Christmas meal, of course. Baked cookies for the holidays, but I always, always, make a banana pudding for my husband to eat all by himself.
My cooking triumphs
I have perfected lots of things, but I am always asked to make my soft pudding cookies and my sweet potato pie. Or for dinner it's my stir fry.
My cooking tragedies
Ugh, once I tried this lemon mustard was horrible!

Tacos in Pasta Shells
I made this for my family and they loved it! I didn't have enough meat for all the shells so I tossed together some refried beans, salsa, corn, and filled the rest with that. They liked having two to choose from!

Basic Ham and Bean Soup
I loved this recipe! I took the advice from some of the comments and cooked it in the crock pot and I added in two cans of bacon and bean campbells soup and the flavor was outstanding. My family goobled it up even after eating ham for three days! They loved it.
