Husband and myself
About this Cook
Married for 23 yrs with 7 children. 4 boys, 3 girls; ages from 28 - 8 yrs old. Home school kids who are still home. Live in "the sticks". Large garden, raise hogs, milk a cow, hunt deer and hogs. Try to make our 5 acres feed us.
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook the basics of Southern cuisine but I'm always up for new recipes, too. Which is why I'm here at allrecipes! Started making a weekly menu and needed some "new material". Husband and kids are basically "meat n' taters" but I'm also broadening their menu horizons, as well.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Love to learn canning with my mum-in-law. Also, enjoy getting recipes from my mom that have been passed down through her family.
My cooking triumphs
Ummm....keeping 7 kids and my husband satisfied every day with my meals?
My cooking tragedies
I plead the 5th!

Classic Fried Rice
I used a package of frozen, stir fry veggies and the kids really liked it.

Mama D's Italian Bread
Made this with Slow Cooker Lasagna. 4 out of 5 children loved the bread. Easy and good recipe. Will definitely make it again.

Slow Cooker Baked Beans
Made this 2 weeks ago and my kids have requested it again a couple more times. Very easy for those busy days, too.
