About this Cook
Me and my husband had gone out to eat forever (we've been together 12 years), after going out to almost every place possible and ordering in, I felt like I missed that smell of home cooking like I had in my house growing up. Now I am starting to learn how to cook and really getting into it. Going out to eat doesn't excite me anymore like it used to, I also feel home cooking is SOOO MUCH better!
My favorite things to cook
I really enjoyed the Chicken Casserole I made.. It came out really awesome!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Turkey Dinner- boiled carrots, turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce and gravy.
My cooking triumphs
Turkey Dinner, making it for the first time after years of trying to buy a good turkey dinner out and fantasizing about the turkey dinners my parents used to make. Finally doing it and it coming out amazing was a huge success to me!
My cooking tragedies
Slow Cooker BBQ Pork Chops. I put the slow cooker on a high setting for 4 hrs, it should of been on at a low setting for 4 hours. It was a tragedy because we waited so long and were excited about the meal and it was a bloody disaster.

Taco Seasoning I
It tastes amazing but the prep time is longer then a minute. It takes me about 10 minutes or maybe more trying to make sure I have all measurements correct. Usually the measurements for this can be for two different times making it with one pd of meat each time. 2 Tbsp per pound of meat is how we like it anymore would ruin it I think, overkill.

Hamburgers by Eddie
awesome! I did use instead of the steak sauce, Sweet Baby Ray's Sweet Vidalia Onion BBQ Sauce, came out excellent! The minced garlic is a little repeative after a few times eating it though.
