About this Cook
I worked as a manager at McDonald's for 3 years before going to school for culinary arts and later joining the navy as a cook where I served for 5 years. I've just earned my Bachelor's Degree in Hospitality Management.
My favorite things to cook
I'll try anything. I love cookbooks with color photos that entice me to try new recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom makes meatballs (with tomato soup as the sauce) out of the same mixture that she uses for meatloaf. Yum!!! It is best served with mashed potatoes and canned corn!

4H Banana Bread
This has been my go-to banana bread recipe for about 8 years now. The only thing I have done differently is to split the sugar 1/2 cup brown and 1/2 cup white. This was a recommendation that my husband found years ago and it always comes out great. Recently, I was looking for a blueberry banana bread recipe and just decided to add blueberries to this recipe instead of reinventing the wheel. SOOOO delicious!!!! Great as muffins too!!!

Blueberry Crisp II
This was fantastic! Followed the ingredients and directions as listed. Wouldn't change a thing. The mayonnaise was great. Made the dish super easy to mix together quickly. My husband laughed when I told him there was mayo in it. I liked how some of the crumb topping settled into the blueberries making them thick like pie filling. This recipe is definitely a keeper. I'm going to share it with my MOMS Club right now!

Quinoa and Black Beans
This was delicious!!! We had it for dinner last Friday and I'm making it again tonight! I may be bringing this to a pot luck get together during the week too! Wow! So many excamation points! Two cans of beans was perfect (my kids LOVE them!) and it was great with the suggested lemon juice and diced tomatoes! Will make this again and again!
