About this Cook
I'm a horrendously lazy cook.
My favorite things to cook
I absolutely love using a slow cooker. I'm productive in the morning, not at 5 p.m., so anything I can prepare in the morning is great! I also love frozen, ready to bake chicken breasts. I just sprinkle them with some seasonings and bake them. They're delicious(and healthy)!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom used to make homemade whole wheat bread and I would love to start doing that, too. I just know that I'd mess it up, though. But it is a tradition that I really want to continue for my daughters.
My cooking triumphs
I accidentally cooked a turkey upside down one year for Thanksgiving and it was delicious! Note that my only triumph was because of a potential tragedy. That's how things go in my kitchen! :) I have come across some great recipes on this site, though, and with some tweaking they have become family favorites that even my 1-year-old and 3-year-old will eat. That's a triumph for me!
My cooking tragedies
I made a gross stuffing for Thanksgiving that no one ate. I made salty cookies. I made cookies with no sugar (accidentally). I tried to make homemade calzones and the dough never rose. I haven't used yeast since that experience because I'm sure it was user error. On more than one occasion I've cooked an entire dinner only to throw it out and get McDonald's. My sister and I made a beautiful apple pie once. As we ate it, we realized something was wrong. Apparently we forgot to bake it for the remaining 45 minutes or so. (sigh)

Traci's Chicken Noodle Casserole
The cream of celery added a weird taste. And the velveeta wasn't good with it. I'm sure there are recipes very similar in terms of ease that would come out much better with those two ingredients changed (cream of mushroom and shredded cheddar?).

Turkey Sandwiches with Cranberry Sauce
The only thing I changed was to omit the tomatoes. The sandwiches were delicious! I eyeballed all the other amounts. Four stars because I wouldn't mix tomatoes and cranberries.

Grilled Chicken Burgers
I didn't use the mushrooms, but I don't think that made a big difference at all. I LOVED THESE. We made them inside on a grill pan since it's freezing outside, and they were simply delicious. We sauteed all the veggies together (putting the tomatoes in last), and really just let it cook for up to 10 minutes. I will definitely make them again.
