About this Cook
I am now a stay at home mom... left the crazy stress of working to be at home for my husband and son. Learning to cook .. finally! At age 50!
My favorite things to cook
Spaghetti, easy recipes for the slow cooker like chicken & dumplings and stew, homemade pizzas, and baking for my little nephews is fun!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Hmmmm... gotta think about that one. My husband has more experience with cooking than I do.
My cooking triumphs
Now that we have a gas stove... I am loving that. Makes learning easier!
My cooking tragedies
There have been many! I couldn't even boil water! My husband wouldn't let me near the pots and pans!

Irish Beef Stew with Guinness(R) Beer
Thanks... this beginner (used to be a full time working mom, now a stay home mom) is learning to love my slow cooker. I tried this recipe and it was a BIG hit! Mixed in sweet potatoes and added a lot of beef bullion and a pinch of flour to thicken. Used Guinness Draught beer... got a thumbs up from the hubby!!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings
Successful meal ... now I won't have to go to Cracker Barrel to get this favorite of mine! I added a pinch of flour to thicken the broth. My family enjoyed it!! Can't wait to have it again on a cold winter night, which we are waiting on in WI! ; )
