About this Cook
I'm somewhat of a beginner cook. When I met my husband (over 10 years ago), he was a very advanced cook and I could barely boil water. Naturally, most household cooking fell to him because of his skill level. But, I'm starting to become less intimidated to get in the kitchen, and even to make some mistakes...

I'd love to learn to make my mom's lasagna. I also cherish my grandma's monster cookie recipe!

Slow Cooker Chicken Pot Pie Stew
I made this for a friend who is due to deliver her first baby this week, and my family and I tried it before giving it away - you know, quality control. :) After reading the reviews, I reduced the salt and pepper called for in the recipe and am glad I did so. I also only used one extra large bouillon cube for a half batch of the recipe. I can't imagine how salty the recipe would be with three! It turned out really well - to make it a five star recipe, I would recommend adding chopped onion, and maybe increasing the proportion of chicken just a little. This will definitely be a repeat recipe when we need a little comfort food! Prep and cleanup were super easy and fast - a huge bonus for our busy family...

Slow Cooker Chai
This is a great base recipe for Chai that I will use again and again. I intend to make a batch each weekend and store it in the fridge to save on calories (and money) for Chai from the coffee shop! Comparatively, this recipe is pretty low calorie. 90 cal per serving compared to 240 cal for a grande Chai latte at Starbucks. My first batch had a good balance of spices, but was just a little sweet for my family's liking. I think next time I make it, I'll use 3/4 of the sweetened condensed milk rather than the whole can.
