About this Cook
Mom of 3 boys. I love to cook. But because I am busy I like easy, flavorful dinner ideas. I am an experimenter and tend to change recipes. I think spices and herbs are a great way to add flavor to a dish without adding calories.
My favorite things to cook
Cookies, and warm, feel good foods. I love using a crockpot or dutch oven.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My husband and I love to eat out and try different foods and food preparations. We've had to cut back on eating out, but I still try to make "gourmet" type meals to satisfy our craving.

Chili Seasoning Mix II
Good mix. Just too salty. Would omit salt next time and season to taste once chili is made.

Slow-Cooker Pepper Steak
Outstanding. Made recipe pretty exact with minor changes: I used the pre-cut stir fry beef for ease. I didn't even cook the beef, I just threw it in the crockpot frozen. I also added the peppers and onion the last 2 hours on low. The gravy was still a little runny so I did add an additional 1T of cornstarch the last 30 minutes to thicken. Just like my mom used to make for my birthday!
