About this Cook
Gardening is my passion right next to cooking. I currently have 25 different varieties of Hostas and I plan to add more every spring. :) My green thumb came from my Mom. Although my outside plants flourish and I love all of them, I can't stand plants in the house. I LOVE to cook and love to try new recipes. I like recipes that the average "Joe" can find all of the ingredients for. I currently live with my husband and son and now they are my guinea pigs for new recipes I find. :)
My favorite things to cook
Dinner. Mostly chicken dishes. LOVE cooking in the slow cooker. Dinner is ready as soon as we get home from work. :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
There really aren't any "traditions" so-to-speak but I do have alot of recipes from my Mom that I am teaching my son to make. (One being Chicken and Dumplings which I may share here!)
My cooking triumphs
Making something taste good that my boys enjoy eating. I do make a mean cheesecake. :)
My cooking tragedies
Pecan pie! UGH!!! I cannot make a pecan pie like my Mom's to safe my life! I gave up and make pumpkin instead. LOL!!

Chipotle Chicken Soup
I tried this recipe this past weekend. My son and husband were very skeptical but I assured them it would be good. I topped it with a sprinkle of cheese and served it with tortilla chips. They were astounded! Fabulous!!!! :) Definitely a keeper.
