Bow Tie Pasta with Sausage and Sweet Peppers
About this Cook
I'm a busy mom who used to easily get stuck in a rut when it came to cooking meals for my family. I love this site because when I want something quick and easy for dinner -- I can enter what I have onhand and come up with some great alternatives to spaghetti and tacos!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook pasta and mexican food. I also love to find good recipes for to add a new flair for old standards like pork chops and chicken.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Each Christmas Eve night we make sticky bread and egg casserole for the next morning. It isn't the food that makes it such a great tradition, but the memory of us preparing them in anticipation of the next morning's fun.
My cooking triumphs
Anytime that I find a recipe that makes my family go "WOW!" But I think that my biggest triumph is when I made my first batch of enchiladas and it was deemed "better than our favorite Mexican restaurant!".
My cooking tragedies
Any kind of baked fish. For some reason, anytime I attempt to bake fish -- it comes out terrible. My husband has finally asked me to give up. If we want some good fish for dinner, we hit the road. ha ha

Oven Roasted Baked Potatoes
Really good and easy! There were no leftovers. I appreciate the fact that coconut oil is healthier.

Cheater Baked Ziti
Oh. My. Gosh. This is too good to be this easy. I first tried it about a month ago, and I've made it 3 times. The best and easiest meal to make in a hurry. And it makes enough for plenty of leftovers! THANK YOU!!!

The Best Steak Marinade
This IS the best steak marinade on earth!!! I mean seriously...super easy and OH MY GOSH SO GOOD!!!! I did not have any problems with it tasting vinegary or anything - made exactly as written except for I didn't have the dijon mustard, but I just put some dried mustard in there and it was fabulous. My whole family raved!
