About this Cook
I've been married since August of 1998 and am the mother of two beautiful boys. I started cooking in earnest just before my youngest was born. Prior to that I mostly made food from boxes :-(.
My favorite things to cook
I don't have anything I would term as a favorite when it comes to cooking. I love to bake chocolate chip cookies with walnuts :-).
My cooking triumphs
I have gotten really good at making my oven fried pork chops. My husband even complimented me last time I made them :-).
My cooking tragedies
I made a pork tenderloin once and my husband wouldn't eat it because he thought it wasn't done enough.

Cabbage Patch Stew
I was fully expecting my family to not like this (I wasn't even sure I would after smelling the cabbage throughout my house as it cooked) but much to my surprise, the stew was enjoyed by all but our youngest who I think was just in a cranky mood. I made mine with medium chunky salsa, kidney beans and without celery since I didn't have any on hand. My husband asked for seconds for maybe only the second time since I've started cooking in earnest. I will definitely be making this again and again. Thank you for sharing your recipe!!
