About this Cook
I am a single mom of two great kids. My son is 6 and my daughter is 4. My cooking tends to be 75% quick and easy, 25% more complicated, fancy meals. Im not a fantastic baker so I like posting pics when something turns out the way it was supposed to.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite recipe is my hot spinach dip which I make with a lot of fresh herbs and melted cheese. I love italian food and it is my favorite thing to make. I am interested in some day learning how to make chinese food so I can stop ordering take-out.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite tradition is my Mom's holiday potatoes that we make on christmas. The secret is cream of potato soup. I have posted the recipe if you'd like to check it out.
My cooking triumphs
I recently (finally) learned how to make a meatloaf that doesn't fall apart. I was pretty excited about that.
My cooking tragedies
I recently discovered that, while, a lot of things taste fantastic melted... cheese, chocolate, etc... pot holders, however, do not.

Tangy Dill Potato Salad
I originally learned to make potato salad from the old Betty Crocker cookbook so I've always covered the hot potatoes in italian dressing before chilling them and this really does make a big difference in flavor. I did half and half mayo and light sour cream and added just a touch of bacos at the end. I made this with dry dill and it was awesome.

Green Bean Fries
I'll give five stars to any recipe that shortens the list of things I can only get if I go to a restaurant. Instead of taking the family out and spending 50/60.00, I spent about 6 bucks for green beans and a bottle of chipotle ranch and everything else I already have. These are super easy to make and satisfying and a tad healthier than some of its other fried counterparts. I agree on the baking in the oven. yum!
