About this Cook
Registered nurse, single mom, 2 kids (boy & girl). Very content & happy w/my life! :)
My favorite things to cook
Baking, stir-frying & the crockpot are my favorites but I love trying new recipes. I stay away from the grill unless it's chicken, hotdogs or hamburgers, tho. I'm no good w/steaks. I also hate fry-daddy's. Those things are disgusting. :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
My daughter & I love to cook & bake together. Banana bread & choc. chip cookies are favorites in our family. Also, when we have a free day we'll make a recipe out "Mastering the Art of French Cooking". It's hysterical. Those recipes take half the day & a minimum of 3 sticks of butter to make.
My cooking triumphs
Cooking Thanksgiving at my ex-husband's house every year. I have to drive 10 hrs. to get there the day before, all my own spices packed, hoping that he'll have gotten everything on the grocery list that I've e-mailed him. He has hardly any utensils or baking dishes so I bring as much w/me as I can. It's a challenge!
My cooking tragedies
My first time cooking fish. I didn't realize that you had to remove the scales. We had to give it to the dog. He wouldn't even eat it, he buried it in the yard under the snow. Then, when Spring came, he dug it up & was running around with it!

Jamaican Beef Patties
I just got back from Jamaica last week. After having the meat patties there I HAD to try them when I got home! This recipe was great! Totally hit the spot. other than adding a little cheese & using spicy curry I didn't change a thing. :)

Slow Cooker Pork Chops II
Unfortunately, I did not like this one! I found the whole thing very oily with way too much seasoning for just four chops.

Baby Spinach Omelet
Yum! Thanks so much for this one. Next time I'll use fresh onion and maybe add some diced tomato. Great healthy recipe. :)
