About this Cook
I am mom to two soldiers (son & daughter) and one darling little boy. I adore finding new recipes and trying them out on my eager husband.
My favorite things to cook
Mexican, Spanish and Italian as well as cakes and treats from scratch!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Hundreds of cookies at Christmas time!
My cooking triumphs
My first full course Spanish meal! I even took a picture of it to send to my friends!
My cooking tragedies
My very first Thanksgiving dinner for my new husband and family. I didn't seal the cover and the drippings for the gravy evaporated and the whole thing burned while we were walking our new puppy!

Bow Ties with Sausage, Tomatoes and Cream
Love this pasta dish! Only change I make is to use entire 28 oz., can of tomatoes. I do not drain as we like more sauce with our pasta. I simply pour can into large bowl and chop up the tomatoes in the bowl before adding. Another tip is to add additional red pepper flakes individually after serving for those who like it spicier...this way the children can enjoy as well!

Cocktail Meatballs II
To make enough for a crowd, use a large bag of frozen mini meatballs. Pour them (frozen) into your crockpot, and in a separate bowl, mix a 32 oz., jar of grape jelly with 3 jars of Heinz chili sauce. When it is completely mixed, pour over meatballs and cover. Cook on low for 4+ hours. This takes a few minutes of prep, and it smells wonderful as your guests arrive!

I have tried many recipes for popovers. This one seems to be the winner. They rise really tall, and they are nice and "eggy"! This is the only one I use now.
