About this Cook
I love to bake from scratch and I finally have the counter space to do it in. I also like to get creative, and somehow I always know what spices to put with what and which wines to use with which dishes.
My favorite things to cook
Desserts...anything with chocolate!
My cooking triumphs
Hmmm...Too hard for me to pick but my husband would say that my sausage meatballs in sauce is my best recipe ever.
My cooking tragedies
I once burned a bowl of rice pilaf in the microwave. And I once broke a cake while transferring it (after it was frosted, of course!).

Three Packet Slow Cooker Roast
Made this with mashed potatoes the other night for easy and SO yummy, but there was a TON of it, since it's just hubby and me! So tonight I mixed half the leftover mashed potatoes and half the leftover roast beef (shredded, thanks to my food processor), wrapped the mixture in crescent rolls, and served with the leftover juices, heated of course (the recipe is in my profile). AND - thanks to our new Food Saver thingy, I vacuum-sealed the rest of the mixture to freeze and use later as hash! If you want to make the juices into gravy, Wondra flour works great and you can do it right in the crock pot!

Baked Chicken with Peaches
I made this with 2 cans of sliced peaches and some of their juice. It came out very sweet, but the chicken didn't cook all the way through. I'll try it again in the slow cooker but I'm going to use apricots & raisins.

Kathy's Delicious Whole Slow Cooker Chicken
My family LOVES this recipe so much that I make it at least once a month, if not more. I leave out the balsamic vinegar and sesame oil and sometimes I use water if I don't have chicken broth in the house. It always comes out fantastic!
