About this Cook
I recently divorced. I have two children, Michael age 14, and Mackenzie age 9. I am a full time college student, going to Illinois State University this fall to be a special education teacher.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake. I also like finding new recipes for my slow cooker.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas!! I absolutely love baking together with my mom, sister, and kids to make all sorts of yummy things for the holidays. Some for us to eat and some to give away.
My cooking triumphs
The first time I cooked goose, I was so worried because all I had heard was that it was so greasy and nasty. I stuffed the inside of it with white bread slices and apples and seasoned the outside with salt pepper and garlic rub, roasted it, and it was beautiful! golden brown and crispy on the outside, moist and flavorful on the inside and not a bit greasy! I was so proud of myself!
My cooking tragedies
First time I made chicken soup I read the directions wrong and put in 3 TABLESPOONS of thyme insterad of 3 teaspoons! YUCK!! Dog wouldn't even eat it.

Cheese Stuffed Turkey Meat Loaf
This was really good - the whole family liked it! I have an herb garden so I substituted some different herbs for the seasoning. Definite make again.

Leftover Pancake Breakfast Sandwich
This is an awesome idea! My kids will love it. Thanks for a great suggestion. I'll probably use bacon instead of ham for them because they like it better, but a sausage patty would be good too!
