About this Cook
I am a stay-at-home-mom with 2 children. My son is 5 and my daughter just turned 2. I have been happily married to my best friend and soul-mate for almost 7 years. I thrive on being able to cook delicious and satisfying yet healthy recipes for my family.
My favorite things to cook
I love making freezer meals. Many times that ends up being various slow-cooker recipes and stir-frys, and usually a huge batch of pancakes and breakfast muffins.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My husband is a grill-master. My favorite family times involving food are usually when we have a cookout, whether it's at home, at a park, or while camping.

Whipped Butternut Squash
This was a pretty good dish. I did bake mine for a while after mixing it as it was a little runnier than I'd like. However; I did add a little brown sugar and cinnamon as suggested by many in here and I won't do that next time. I think it would've had a more savory flavor if I had just stuck with the salt and pepper! But good all in all.

Molasses Cookies
This recipe (with the revisions) was fabulous!!! Soft, chewy, spicy cookies! Delicious! I took the suggestions of using brown sugar in the recipe in place of white sugar and I cut the baking soda in half as suggested, otherwise I followed the recipe to a tee! Will definitely be making these again and again!

Sausage and Lentils
This recipe was very good. I used chunked up spiral ham that I had left over from a previous dinner. Be careful when adding your salt, it can keep your lentils from softening. I would recommend adding the other spices when it says to and add the salt about 5 minutes before you take it off the stove. Also my lentils took a good bit longer than it says to cook and soften, closer to an hour. Will make this again!
