When I was younger it seemed such a chore to figure out what I was going to be for Halloween. Most of the time I didn't figure that out until Halloween day, just hours before heading out the door with our pillow cases in hand to gather all our treats. Halloween is much more fun now than it… MORE

About this Cook
I live in a cozy ranch home in the country with my husband of 14 years and my two dogs, Smoky and Molly. I have one son who is 24 years old. I have lived Michigan my whole life. I love to cook and bake but I am limited on what I can make at home for the two of us because my husband doesn't like alot of vegies. I would love to try new things, but I can't eat it all by myself:) I work full time outside of the home. I am addicted to allrecipes.com and cookbooks and cooking magazines. You can usually find me reading my recipe books and if I am online, my husband knows I am drooling over recipes and nothing else!
My favorite things to cook
I really enjoy cooking dinners and desserts. I would have to say my favorites to cook are lasagna and chicken dishes (like Chicken Marsala and Chicken Picatta). I also enjoy making cookies. I love trying new recipes and adding my own personality to them. I am addicted to putting my own spin on recipes I find here.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We have always gone to our family's homes on the holidays, but I always cook a Thanksgiving dinner at home on one of the weekends surrounding Thanksgiving.
My cooking triumphs
I made the best fudge of my life. So creamy and not one bit of graininess. Watch out Mackinaw Island!
My cooking tragedies
I would have to say just recently. I had gotten a new stove with a broiler on the top portion of the oven. I had never used one of these before and I decided to broil steaks in December (2008). I pulled them out to check them and they were not quite done so my husband and I decided to put them back in for a few minutes. I was watching in amazement how the grease was popping up and fireballs were coming down. How dumb was I? Needless to say, right in front of my eyes, the grease on the broiler pan caught fire and it was quite a hectic couple moments in my kitchen that night. I can laugh now, but what was I thinking? Watching fireballs??!! Geez. Tough lessons learned.

Low-Cal Roasted Sweet Potato Bites
I really enjoyed this dish. Unfortunately, there is snow covering my garden herbs this time of year so I resorted to using dried thyme leaves and rosemary (I ground the rosemary more fine in my coffee grinder). I didn't measure the seasonings, just sprinkled to taste. Very good! As others noted, it did take more than 20 minutes to roast - about 40-45 minutes to get a tender bite. The sweetness of the potato combined with the savory herbs was perfect! I love the coconut oil also. Yum! I will make this again.

Slow Cooker Apples with Cinnamon and Brown Sugar
I was pleasantly surprised by this recipe. I didn't have high hopes for this for some reason but they smelled fantastic cooking. These reminded me of apple crisp made easy. The slow cooker liners make for easy clean up. Love them little gems!

Shells with Italian Sausage and Ricotta Stuffing
I really enjoyed these and they were really easy to make. They would be great assembled the night before for a quick easy dinner the next night.
