About this Cook
Recently became a SAHM to 5 kids, 2 dogs, 2 horses, 6 cats & married to a great guy who likes to eat!
My favorite things to cook
Anything that tastes good, and will get eaten.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My dad always made me my favorite potatoes for my birthday (instead of cake, I guess). I always make my kids' cakes - never buy, even if they aren't as "lovely!" :) They love that I do that for them. My oldest doesn't like to cook, and the second oldest is just starting to cook with me. I'm sure we'll start establishing some soon. :)
My cooking triumphs
No one particular one...just that since I've been on this site, I have learned to experiment alot, and my cooking has gotten sooo much better. Altho I've been "cooking" a long time, probably 3/4 of the time has been Mac N Cheese stuff! :)
My cooking tragedies
Put it this way - I can burn water! :(

Burrito Pie
This was really good. Everyone in the house ate it, well most. A couple of us are new vegetarians. :) However, my kids are usually very bland eaters with regards to chilies, tomatoes and the such. But this went over well. I subbed ground turkey because we don't do beef, and did extra basic seasonings pepper and cumin on meat. Didn't add granulated garlic or dried minced onion, as the recipe already had fresh. I also used taco seasoning with the liquid from the tomatoes to simmer in and I think that helped with any sogginess problems that could have happened had I used taco sauce. Didn't have to double layer tortillas or anything. Did refried beans as its own layer. Kept olives out and people added as they wanted, along with shredded lettuce and sour cream. Will definitely be making again. Thank you!

Corn Dog Casserole
Awesome! I did not do the celery and sage due to preference, and was out of onions. Added a can of drained sweet corn. Loved it! Cut dogs into rounds cuz that's what my kids prefer. Will definitely make regularly. Thank you!

Turkey and Quinoa Meatloaf
This was a hit (pretty much) in our family. I do not like meatloaf at all, but never thought of making with ground turkey. But we were getting kind of bored with same stuff so I tried this for my husband. He really liked it. Only reason 4 stars, is because the kids liked it, but not "loved!" it. I will definitely be including in my rotation though. Thank you!
