I'm a single mom to 2 wonderful kiddos, a 2nd grade teacher, and have a passion for cooking! Mixing all these together has proven challenging but I wouldn't change it for the world!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake, use my slow cooker, and make any and all Italian food!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family has family reunions quite a few times a year, so we all bring our favorite dishes to the get together!
My cooking triumphs
Anytime I can make my family or guests ohh and ahh over a meal...it is a triumph! That is the whole reason I cook!
My cooking tragedies
When I first started cooking as a teenager, I tried to make homeade fettucini alfredo. I don't really know what happened, but it ended up in one big ball of a mess!

Hash Brown Casserole II
Followed lots of reviewers tips. Used 1/4 cup butter, cream of mushroom soup, and sautéed the onions. Had a great flavor, but I just didn't care for the topping. Will definitely make again without it!

Grandma's Green Bean Casserole
I made a few changes based on others reviews and it was fantastic! I sautéed the onions in a tbs of butter until softened, used a little less sour cream, added garlic powder and pepper, and mixed in half the cheese with the green beans and the rest on top. Made it the day before without the topping, then when I was ready to bake topped it off then in the oven it went!

Salsa Chicken Rice Casserole
I was pleasantly surprised with this recipe. The changes I made was that I cooked my chicken and onions in a little olive oil, then shredded it. I mixed the soups, salsa, and rice together. I used two small pans to have one to freeze for later. I layered it half rice, half cheese, chicken, half rice, then cheese. Made the night before then popped in the oven for an easy week night meal!
