About this Cook
I am a mom to an active teenager, work full time outside of the home, and own a home-based bakery. So, I always looking for delicious, quick and easy meals. I love this site and have used many recipes for many meals and parties.
My favorite things to cook
Because of my busy schedule, the crockpot has become my best friend for dinner. I love making my husband's favorite - pork roast with sauerkraut in my crockpot.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love spending Sundays with my family, my sister's family and my parents enjoying a good Korean meal. My mom is Korean and the food is awesome. My husband and brother-in-law are now hooked on Korean food.
My cooking triumphs
I have created a "signature" buttercream recipe for my cakes that is hit with my family and customers. I am very proud of it!
My cooking tragedies
I have had my ups and downs, but my "tragedy" just happend. The Vice President of our department hosted a Christmas party at her house this year. We were all to bring a dish. I thought I would try something new. I tried a crab dip from this site. It never did set well and was runny, but my husband, son and co-worker said it was good so I decided to serve it. I had 2/3rds of it left and people were polite, but it didn't go well at all. I was very disappointed. It was also a pricey waste of good ingredients.

The Best Bean and Ham Soup
I wanted to make a ham and bean soup with my left over ham and bone from Christmas. I tried this recipe, but I used 2 cans of navy beans, rinsed and drained, since that is what I had in the pantry and cooked it in the crock pot. You will need to use a very large crock pot, because this makes a lot of soup. It definitely was one of the best ham and bean soup recipes I have made. Yum!

Easy Meatloaf
This is a good basic recipe to start for a good meatloaf. I added a few more ingredients in it - 1 tbsp of Worcestershire sauce, 1/2 tsp smoked paprika, 1/2 tsp dry mustard powder, 1 tsp garlic powder. I also used only 3/4 cup of whole milk and seasoned bread crumbs. I also took the advice of others and sauteed the onions first (threw in some fresh garlic as well). It did take about an 1 1/2 hours to get it to 160 degrees. I didn't make the glaze as both my husband and I do not like sweet on our meatloaf. I made a brown gravy instead and served it with that. It was very good.

Hash Brown Casserole II
This is very good. I use cream of mushroom than cream of chicken, because I just do not like cream of chicken. I also sauteed the onions first before adding it to the dish. I did add a 1 lb of brown breakfast sausage to it this morning to make this a breakfast dish. It's a hit with my friends and family. Thank you for a great recipe.
