About this Cook
I am the mother of three very active boys and wife to my best friend. We recently moved back to our home town after my husband's Army career ended and there is no place like home! I have a demanding job and schedule, so cooking is a challenge. I love allrecipes for the wide variety of recipes and cooking methods.
My favorite things to cook
I love making soups and pasta sauce. Anything I can make without a recipe in hand, is a favorite.
My favorite family cooking traditions
On the first day of school my mom always made us chocolate chip cookies, every year until we graduated. I have started doing it for my kids as well, although sometimes they get the packaged stuff due to time and work. But I don't tell them.
My cooking triumphs
Every meal is a triumph!
My cooking tragedies
I'm not too good at baking - the whole measuring thing - it is not like cooking.

Harvey Ham Sandwiches
Kids said they were really sweet. And if the kids think they are sweet, than they must be. Nobody ate much of it. These looked so good, too. I will try again and work on toning down the sweetness.

Slow Cooker Green Beans, Ham and Potatoes
I bring this to work for potlucks. I use chicken broth instead of water and the granules. I have also used canned green beans with great results. I throw everything in together, including potatoes (red potatoes) and let it go. It's a great taste of home.

Doc's Best Beef Jerky
Couple tips I can give is to (1) dry the meat after marinating between paper towels. This will help the process, since you are trying to dry the meat. The flavor is already absorbed from marinating. Mine marinated for about 36 hours. (2) I sprinkled the dry seasonings on the meat first and then poured the wet ingredients on. I found this easier to incorporate. (3)I used the oven at 170 degrees F instead of a dehydrator. I bought a sirloin roast and sliced it super thin. It took about 2-3 hours. I turned them after an hour and about every 20-30 minutes after that. This is my first time making jerky and I can't believe how good it is. Oh, I also added a 1/4 cup water to the mix to cut back on the salt from the other reviewers complaints.
