About this Cook
I married my high school sweet heart 21 years ago and have we 3 great kids. My oldest is currently serving in Iraq. I am an avid reader and love the outdoors. My husband and I are leaders in our church and put Jesus first in our life.
My favorite things to cook
I just love to cook Italian and mexican. Especially if it requires the whole family to be involved. Dinner in our family is a big deal. Sitting down as a family to eat is something we have always done and have instilled the importance of it to our children.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Just being together is our main tradition. My mother-in-laws Chicken Escarole soup is a must at every gathering. Each birthday we pick a different cuisine to try, its fun to learn new cooking tricks and to enjoy different foods.
My cooking triumphs
My husband and I have dreams of opening a restaurant, we will in time. One year 2 good friends of ours got married and had us cater their wedding, wow it was a full 160 person affair from soup to nuts. We knocked their socks off and it was a great success. Nobody but close friends of ours knew it was our first time doing something like this. I was so satisfying knowing that my husband and I had it in us to do it!!
My cooking tragedies
I have had no major tragedies other than cakes sticking to the pan and eventually becoming a trifle I have had the occasional overcooked meat. This thanksgiving I made a cheese cake and didn't take into consideration the height of my oven shelves. I wound up decapitating my cheese cake as I removed it.. Nothing that a can of cherries couldn't hide!!

Quick and Easy Peach Cobbler
A great blast from my past. Before cooking took on an art form for me I just loved the taste of good food. This recipe is quick, easy and made from supplies most have in their pantry. Adding fresh cherries or cranberries is a great twist. Thanks for sharing.

House Fried Rice
Wonderful recipe, I made this a vegetarian dish by omitting the meat and I did not add the green pepper or celery. I also added a little olive oil. Thanks for a great find. We will be using this recipe alot.

Fresh Asparagus and Chicken Casserole
Very Good... I used 1 cup sour cream and 1/2 cup mayonaise instead and thickened the sauce with flour & milk before assembling. I increased the noodles to 12 oz and assembled it in this order noodles, chicken, asparagus, noodles and topped it off with the remaining chicken and cheese.. It was well liked... Thanks for a great find.. Cheryl
