About this Cook
I'm married with 2 children, both girls( Lauren I call Lou, and Shelby), and 3 grandchildren 2 boys(Heath and Kolby) and a girl(Teigan) all Shelby's children! I'm a CNA/LNA and love living in Massachusetts. I've lived in California, and I and my youngest Daughter Lou, 25, came back because we love, and missed the seasons here! California has only one season where we were, in Santa Maria CA. Beautiful state though...
My favorite things to cook

Lot's of goodies are made for Halloween night our favorite holiday. Pumpkin pies, all Fall, right up until Christmas. Family for Thanksgiving. Comfort foods for winters cold dark days..

My cooking tragedies
I let my husband make my own, special, spaghetti sauce for the next nights dinner... once! It was horrible lol. I never let him do that again...

Aunt Bev's Glorified Grilled Cheese Sandwich
Awesome! Thanks to Aunt Bev! The only thing I changed, because it didn't need any change is the Swiss, I changed it to baby swiss which is milder. Thank you for this wonderful recipe, I wish I thought of myself! 5 stars! P.S. My 3 (ages 5-12) very picky Grandchildren, that don't even like grilled cheese, LOVED IT!
