About this Cook
I'm not bad at cooking, I just don't do it very often. Cooking for one seems like such a waste of time. In the past I cooked a lot, but then I spent two years working on a master's degree (I'm a teacher) and there wasn't time to cook. Now that I've finished the degree, I'm making myself cook again. It feels good!
My favorite things to cook
Recipes that do not have too many ingredients or strange ingredients that wouldn't get used again.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I've been cooking Easter dinner for the family for 20+ years. I'm not an Easter ham person…I look for nontraditional meals to prepare.
My cooking triumphs
Nothing specific comes to mind…I figure that everything is good when the dining room table is silent during meals because everyone is enjoying the food.
My cooking tragedies
I made oatmeal cookies once and forgot to put in the oatmeal. The cookies were pretty runny!

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast
This recipe is awesome just as is. I use whatever cream soup is in the cupboard, and generally, my cut of meat is 2-3 lbs. I like chuck roast. Fall-apart tender…yum.

Sour Cream Pork Chops
I should have heeded previous reviews and added some onion soup mix or something.

Cherry Almond Pound Cake
I've made this several times, and it always gets devoured! Every time someone asks me for the recipe and is stunned by how easy it is to make.
