About this Cook
I am a working Mom. I work 12 hour days so I look for quick meals. My son is going to be going to law school in the fall, so I will be cooking for one only.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake, but have cut way back. I like to BBQ, but am a little intimadated. I really want to start experimenting out of my comfort zone, with unfamiliar fruits and vegetables.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Christmas, my Mom, sister and I get together and make Christmas cookies that have been made every Christmas since my Grandmother's time, and then we each bring a new recipe to try to see if it is worthy to be added to the "Traditional List". I like to sew, so I made everyone a Christmas apron, and we all bring our aprons and wear them while we work. We play Christmas music, and reminisce about my Grandmother who has passed away.
My cooking triumphs
Still working on this......
My cooking tragedies
When I was about 8, I wanted to make an cake for my parents' anniversary. I made one of those Snackin Cakes in a box. The recipe called for a small amt of vinegar, and I added way more than I should have. My Aunt, who was helping me warned my parents what had happened, and my Mom told my Dad that they would eat and not say a word to hurt my feelings, but when the cake was cut into, the fumes almost knocked you out!

Special Deviled Eggs
Made the recipe as written, and the filling was too sweet and runny. Will keep looking for a go to recipe for devilled eggs.

Guacamole
This was my first attempt at guacamole and since it was rated so highly I thought I'd give it a try. I followed the directions exactly except that I added 2-3 tbsp of sour cream. (I doubled the recipe because it said 4 servings but the doubled recipe fed 13 people with a fair amt left over). Anyways I took it to a church gathering and got a lot of compliments. I plan on making this my go-to recipe for guacamole.

Slow Cooker Creamy Potato Soup
Working 12 hours shifts, I am always on the lookout for easy and tasty slow-cooker recipes. This was fabulous. My husband loved it too. I followed the recipe exactly, except that I used fat free half/half, and left out dill and cooked on low for 10 hours. Didn't have white pepper, used black. Will definitely make again.
