About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I grew up eating the same things every week, so I like to find and try new recipes all the time. My husband and I will eat almost anything, so I'm always trying new dishes or new ways to prepare old staples. I do not like spicy food, but I will make spicy dishes - and just omit the spicey ingredients.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love to bake - there is just something about your entire house smelling like a yummy dessert. Also, I have found a new love of my crock pot. I have what I call "Crock Pot Tuesdays." So, I use the crock pot every Tuesday - naturally. Growing up, we always ate out on Friday, so I like the idea of having a "day" where you can look forward to a certain dish. Or a dish made a certain way.
My cooking tragedies
My husband says I use the smoke detector as a timer. It's true. I burn stuff a lot because I don't stay focused on just cooking - I'm doing 20 other things. I'm trying to change that!

Sangria! Sangria!
This was excellent! I added sierra mist at the end, and not the water. I also added random fruits that I had in the house, so not everything in the list. It was great. Everyone enjoyed it and it was so easy to make!

Sopapilla Cheesecake Pie
I made this for a dinner club - our theme was Mexican foods. Everyone raved about it and went for seconds. Was even great the next day cold from the fridge. This will be something I can make easily when I want a sweet dessert as the ingredients are so simple!!

Best Beef and Broccoli
This was fantastic! I used leftover ribeye steak as I had some leftover and reheated steak - even ribeye- is not good. I'll try it next time with a less good cut of beef, but I image it will taste just as good. My husband and I ate almost the entire pan. Will be making this more often.
