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.

Plantain Corn Muffins
I just made these, and they are fantastic! A little on the sweet side for me if you're using truly ripe plantains as I did (completely black) so I will cut back on the sugar a bit next time. Otherwise they are fabulous! I made them into mini-muffins and my toddler can't stop eating them!

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!

Tasty Lentil Tacos
This was a very good base recipe for me. I made it exactly like the recipe the first time and it was very good, however; my lentils were a bit crunchy despite cooking for almost an hour. The reason was that if you add too much salt to lentils while they are cooking, they won't soften. Next time I make these I will cook the lentils first using a low-sodium or no sodium added broth first until they're tender and then add my other ingredients. Aside from that minor change, they were awesome!
