Broccoli Marinara
Chicken Enchiladas
About this Cook
Hi there! My name is Anna. I'm a mom of a hungry husband and toddler and luckily I love to cook and bake! My husband and I are trying to build a huge repertoire of meals, and All Recipes is definitely helping. We also cook from Cooking Light Magazine, Joy of Cooking, and the Williams & Sonoma Healthy Cooking cookbook. Our hope is to find lots of quick, healthy meals, as there's not a whole lot of time for prep with kids!
My favorite things to cook
I love trying new recipes, even when they don't turn out that great. However, the best ever feeling is trying a recipe several times and *finally* getting it right! My all-time favorite things to cook are: Chicken Enchiladas (All Recipes!), Spanish Rice, Sloppy Joes, Meatloaf, Brownies (also All Recipes!) and Oatmeal Raisin Cookies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My dad was the chef in my family growing up. He makes incredible Italian food and someday I'll replicate his marinara sauce. Here's to starting new traditions!
My cooking triumphs
I made my enchiladas probably half a dozen times before perfecting the recipe that my husband loves! Now we pair it with Spanish rice and we've got a meal that we can eat for days.
My cooking tragedies
When I first met my husband's parents, I made my key lime pie but added a little extra butter to the crust. I thought it would make it softer, but quite the was impossible to cut and I was so embarrassed! Since then I've perfected the pie, in fact I just made it for my husband for Fathers' day!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings
Just OK, very salty even with the healthy request versions of the condensed soups. Only used 1 can of biscuits and even thought that was too much! The chicken itself was good, but the gravy/dumpling part was just salt overload.

Laura's Quick Slow Cooker Turkey Chili
Phenomenal! The store was out of ground turkey so I used ground chicken. Reduced to 1 can tomato soup, substituted cannellini beans for the black beans, added diced tomatoes with jalapenos, drained. Omitted red pepper flakes and allspice. Put in slow cooker on low for 8 hrs. Forgot to spray the crock (oops) so I stirred it a few times. No big deal. Yummy with cheese & fritos!
