About this Cook
My grandmother was a professional chef and I have been cooking/baking since before I can remember, it really gave me an edge when I got married. I now have 2 children and the tradition continues!!
My favorite things to cook
Anything that my kids and family enjoy!! I tend to go in streaks, for awhile I was all about bread, making a new type each day, then it was snacks(granola bars, cereal, etc), then it was all of our favorite restaurant dishes-just to prove I could do it(and often better ;)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Pierogi on Thanksgiving, Kolacky for Christmas, and Donuts for new years eve!!

Slider-Style Mini Burgers
This was a great recipe, though I changed some of the prep method(I know, I know, I was just leary of "sloppy joe on a bun" as several reviewers mentioned). I mixed better than boullion beef with minced onions and mayo(as close as I could get to the onion soup as we can't use it-my daughter has an MSG sensitivity), then I mixed in the ground beef and put it all in the processor(although I probably didn't need to premix before the processor). I then formed the meat mixture into small, thin patties and cooked them in a cast iron skillet over water, minced onions, and butter(1-2T butter, c of water-just enough to cover the onions completely). I opened a pkg of sunbeam dinner rolls, cut them in sets of 6(they come in 2sets of 12), placed cheese over the entire bottom bun-this ensures better coverage than placing the cheese on each patty. I placed the onion covered patties on top of the cheese, put a tiny amt of butter on the top bun, wrapped in sprayed foil, and popped them in the toaster oven sans cookie sheet for 10min to melt the cheese and warm the buns...they were EXCELLENT!!! The whole family said they were just like White Castle(that we haven't had in years although I am from Chicago), while Im the only one that ate WC slyders regularly &I don't think they are EXACTLY like WC, they are the closest I can come and far superior to the frozen version...they would be perfect party food since you could make the burgers in advance and then just pop them in the oven at party time!

Kickin' Turkey Club Wrap
I do something similar and the family loves it for a nice change of pace in the lunch box. I would like to point out that the picture does not match the recipe in that it shows cheese but there is no cheese in the recipe. We personally always add cheese(not the processed american in the photo, but some type of mozzerella, cheddar, muenster-shredded or sliced doesn't matter but we love cheese), but again all in personal preference.

We love these pork chops, I use a whole pork loin when it is on sale, lightly freeze and slice very thin(no pounding necessary)...the first time I made them as is and they were good, but missing something. The second time I made them I seasoned the flour with garlic, ginger, salt, and pepper and they were fantastic! Such a small change made such a big difference in flavor!! My 9yr old that rarely eats much meat ate 6 of these...not sure where he put them ;-) Served with jasmine rice, stir fry veggies(frozen bag of stir fry blend + bag frozen broccoli), and buttered potatoes(chinese buffet style)...but the pork chops are always the highlight of the meal!!
