About this Cook
My guilty little pleasure is cooking! I love to end the day with a new recipe. My son, Cayden, loves to measure everything out for our recipes. It's a great way for him to learn measuring and special bonding moments for me. :-)
My favorite things to cook
Everything..yeah that just about covers it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Warm baked bread every Monday morning for hubby and the little one. The family gets together on Sunday to make homemade pizza! Hubby and our little one help with the prep steps. It is the best quality time. Lot's of laughs and flour everywhere! :-)
My cooking triumphs
Taking over Thanksgiving dinner for our entire family two years in a row! It takes a week to get everything together but it's the best feeling watching everyone enjoying the fruits of my labor!
My cooking tragedies
None so far..but that doesn't mean I want have any.

Best Peanut Sauce
This is a nice base to start with but the peanut butter is really over powering to the other ingredients. So I would suggest maybe adding more of the other ingredients to suite your personal taste. I did not add the hot pepper sauce because I wasn’t going for a spicy peanut sauce. It is really personal preference, but this is a simple sauce you can cater to your family’s taste buds.

Mini Meatball Subs
These little bit sized mini subs of tastiness, are keepers for our family! I would have given these 5 STARS if I hadn't tweaked it to make it healthy. First I used 97% lean ground turkey instead of ground beef to lower the fat and calories. I left out the green onion and decided to sauté the onion before adding it to the meatball mixture to add a little more moisture. I was able to get 15 nice sized mini meatballs. I jar my own marinara which has all fresh ingredients so I chose to use that for the sauce, I used whole wheat rolls for the subs, and I also used low moisture, low fat mozzarella.

Bacon Wrapped Dates Stuffed with Blue Cheese
These were very delicious with a couple of adjustments. Blue cheese is too bitter in our opinion so we used Capricho De Cabra, which is a nice creamy Goat Chesse, almost like cream cheese. We also only cooked them for 25 minutes and our bacon was a nice crispy texture. Next time we think we will try using a hickory smoked bacon to complement the other sweet flavors.
