About this Cook
I am a young, stay at home mom and wife who enjoys cooking for my family. Because I have a little one, I like recipes that are easy to cook/manage that don't take up a lot of time or tricky ingredients. I was inspired to cook by my grandpa, aunt and grandma who all love cooking/baking on a daily basis. I am starting to experiment more with recipes and I am happy that, according to my husband at least, everything has been delicious thus far :)
My favorite things to cook
Soups because of all the variety.
My favorite family cooking traditions
When I lived with my mom, we used to have family dinner night, but now that I have a family of my own, I am beginning to create this tradition as a nightly *no TV* occurrence.
My cooking triumphs
Baked banana bread! (Huge triumph because I am NOT a baker)
My cooking tragedies
Tried impressing a man by cooking dinner when I first began to cook home meals. The meal turned out awful and we ended up going out to eat. Oops!

Cottage Meatloaf
This is a good recipe to use as a base recipe. I don't follow it to a T because I like adding other ingredients like bacon, hot sauce and BBQ sauce. But even alone it taste great too!

4H Banana Bread
So moist and delicious- my husband AND my baby love this bread and I love how simple the ingredients are (no sour cream needed!)

Caramel Apple Pork Chops
Love this recipe. I doubled the sauce as well and also made it using maple syrup (yey- a super food!). My husband really loved this meal and wants me to cook it again tonight :)
