About this Cook
Updated 2014 - Divorced a boy & married a man. Combined we have 6 kids, 4 live with us. My husband likes to cook and comes up with the most amazing meals with next to nothing. He's quite an inspiration. 2003: I have 3 very active children, 4 if you include my husband. Kids will be kids, and get tired so quickly, of the same recipes, therefore I'm a very frequent user of!
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking dinner, and coming up with new ways to make and season meats.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Love making my Grandma's homemade soups, but I'm always willing to find new ones!
My cooking triumphs
I've been the only one in my entire family, to be able to make my grandma's soups turn out JUST LIKE hers.
My cooking tragedies
I had a Thanksgiving turkey "fly" out of the oven one year... I'd have to say that was THE worst. lol

Oatmeal Pudding Cookies
Followed to a T! FAAAABULOUS! I'm not big on raisins so I opted not to use them. I couldn't find my aunt's recipe, so I searched and found this, and this is THE closest and BEST I've found in comparison! Thank you to the person who posted this!

Escarole Soup
SUPER EASY, SUPER YUMMY! Will definately make this again. Unlike other soups, I didn't need to add any salt to this recipe! I did however, add a little fresh garlic, just because I love garlic, and it was absolutely delicious!

Hamburger Vegetable Soup
FABULOUS! The only thing I did differently was take someone else's advice and added garlic. I LOVE garlic in anything, and it was DELICIOUS!
