My son and me
About this Cook
I'm at a stay at home mom and my family used to eat a lot of fast food. Literally everyday, we'd go out to a fast food establishment and order the same meals. Well we started gaining weight (obviously) and I knew it really wasn't healthy for us in the long run. So I said we weren't going to eat fast food anymore. And I meant it! I bought a new cook book and started looking online for a dinner recipe everyday, and instead of driving our car to a fast food place, I drive to the grocery store instead. I save money and we're eating healthier!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook any of the recipes I grew up on, like Green Bean Casserole or Pork Chops, Sauerkraut, and Dumplings.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I come from a very large family (over 14 aunts and uncles and more than 30 cousins) and every Thanksgiving and Christmas, my family gathers together in one home and cooks the evening's meal with each other.
My cooking triumphs
I finally learned how to make Meringue Cookies without screwing up the egg part of it!
My cooking tragedies
When I was really little, about three or four, I made a weird concoction of ingredients that included milk, eggs, and some other items. I gave it to my mom as a present. She ate it and said she had the runs for days afterwards!

Apple Snicker Salad
This tastes amazing! Definitely a delight for the taste buds! Try making it with vanilla pudding instead of butterscotch, and be sure to cut the Snicker pieces very small otherwise a single bite might be a little overkill for taste.

Vegetable Pizza I
I dislike the sauce that's spread on the pizza. There's something about it that doesn't mesh well with my tastebuds. I did find some shortcuts for this dish that reduce the preparation time, and it also improves the flavor. Instead of cream cheese, dry ranch dip mix, and mayonnaise, purchase premade vegetable ranch dip and spread that over the crescent rolls. Instead of crescent rolls, which you have to spread out and try to cover the surface as well as stick together, you can purchase pizza dough (Pillsbury makes them and they're on the same shelves as the crescent rolls). This will make it a LOT easier to spread out, and it bakes evenly without lumps. Enjoy!
