About this Cook
I am a freelance photographer and graphic designer, and I am also currently a stay at home mom with 3 boys.
My favorite things to cook
I really like making casseroles in the Fall the most. It warms the house and love the delicious smells wafting through the house. Plus, they are usually really easy to make!
My cooking triumphs
I made the best pan of chicken and dumplings last year for Thanksgiving than I have ever made before. It was a big hit! I hope I can make them as good this Thanksgiving.
My cooking tragedies
A crock pot meatloaf recipe I tried that was hideous. It didn't even smell good while it was cooking. However, I tasted it when it was done. YUCK! The whole thing got thrown out. Nobody would eat it. P.S. It was a Sandra Lee slow cooker meatloaf recipe.

Stuffed Green Peppers I
This is a great recipe! The only thing I did different from the recipe is that I precooked my rice a little bit in the microwave then added it to the skillet of hamburger, onions, and tomatoes to ensure that the rice would be tender. I love that the recipe says to boil the peppers first. This makes them nice and tender when they come out of the oven. Great tasting, easy to make, and my family loves it!

Slow Cooker Tender and Yummy Round Steak
Easy and filling meal to make, but I'm just not real crazy about the flavors enough to probably make it again. If I do, I'll tweak with the recipe a bit, maybe less onion.
