About this Cook
I'm in my twenties, have 2 young children, work full-time and am almost done with my MBA. I love cooking and allrecipe has become my saving grace!!!
My favorite things to cook
Steak and Chicken! My husband and I don't even like steakhouses anymore because we have yet to find one that makes the perfect steak like we make at home. And, I get sick of the same ol' chicken, so I love finding new chicken recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom's caramels, chicken and broccoli casserole, and taco soup!
My cooking tragedies
Bread. I can't get it to rise for the LIFE!

Whole Wheat, Oatmeal, and Banana Pancakes
Quick tips - I omitted powdered milk, no biggie - Used all whole wheat flour (no all-purpose), still great - Blended quick oats to a flour-like texture and that worked perfectly - Rather than mashing banana, I just threw the egg, milk, banana and vanilla in the blender, mixed it all up and added it to the flour mixture, worked great. I have never been a whole wheat fan, but as I'm getting older and realize how important nutrition really can be, expecially with diabetes in the family, I am trying to just make better choices when possible and using less white flour and sugar is one of the big ones. This was my first whole wheat baking experience and I have to say they were not only much better than I thought they would be, they were FANTASTIC! I will be makng these often. Next time I may add flax seeds and/or protein power to add a little extra umph...probably won't even be able to tell

Butterscotch Bread Pudding
So good! I had a fresh loaf of bread, so I tore it up and threw it in the oven for a few minutes to dry out, but it was wonderful! I prefer mine warm. but this is definitely something you can make the night before and whip out for breakfast.

Slow Cooker Spicy Black-Eyed Peas
So yummy! Taste's like something you would buy at a Southern restaurant. I made this in a pot on the stove. Did a quick soak on the beans, drained, then made the recipe in my pot and simmered for about 1 1/2-2 hours. The recipe is great as written, but a I added a drained can of diced tomatoes, a can of chiles, and some spicy sausage, the second time around, and it added just a little more kick.
