About this Cook
I have been cooking since I was small enough to need a chair to reach things! My mom taught me alot about cooking, encouraging me to try new recipes, or to just wing it and make something up.
My favorite things to cook
Anything! I like to try new things all the time. My husband is a great person to cook for as well...he's not picky eater and will try anything as well.
My cooking tragedies
This was when I was much younger...my sister and I decided to make home made bread, something we had both done before, however, when I was kneading the dough, I decided to fling it into the air like pizza dough. Well, as you can imagine, I killed the yeast and my bread came out heavy as a brick and only about an inch thick!

Mrs. Strong's Casserole
I have made this as is and husband and I both liked it as is. The next time I made it, I added some garlic and onion powder to the meat and I think it adds a little bit to the flavor. This is a keeper!

Herbed Slow Cooker Turkey Breast
Used a 5 1/2 pound turkey breast for Thanksgiving and followed the directions exactly. It was wonderfully moist, had great flavor and everyone loved it! Not many leftovers--just enough for a couple of sandwiches today!

Yummy Sweet Potato Casserole
I used this recipe for Thanksgiving and followed other suggestions I read in reviews. I baked the sweet potatoes, omitted white sugar, doubled vanilla and used evaporated milk. I think this recipe would've been great as is as well! It was creamy, rich and just sweet enough without the added white sugar -- everyone loved it!!
