Me & My Honey =o)
About this Cook
Blessed with 9 children and in-laws. IT seems that everyday is a big cooking event around our home. My husband and I have lost 200+ pounds between the two of us. We love to cook & eat and live a healthy lifestyle. You can read about our story here: Before I as married I worked in a wonderful bakery called "Sweet Dreams". It was there that I learned how to cake decorate and bake wonderful desserts.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook home-made soups, mexican food, chili and home-made breads.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving Dinner and Christmas baking are a special time especially for my daughter and I~We have an excuse to cook & bake for days!
My cooking triumphs
Flakey pie crust!
My cooking tragedies
I made bean soup one time and I guess I over cooked it or over stirred it. Anyway, the "eyes" of the beans came out and they looked like little maggots. We just could not bring ourselves to eat it!

Rice & Beans (Haitian Style)
The kids and I loved the recipe...the hubby did not like it. He put ketchup on it. He said the ketchup made it palatable~Yuck~Now you see what I am working with =o) We served it at a pot luck and it was a big hit. Avocado and a dallop of sour cream are yummy additions!

Chinese Cabbage Salad II
A favorite at our house! I make a huge bowl for our crew. A few changes we make are: 1)Add some soy sauce to the dressing. 2)Buy a cooked chicken from Costco and cut it up to add a bit of protein. 3)Use the already shredded cabbage/coleslaw mix instead of the broccoli mix the recipe calls for. 5)We have added raw sunflower seeds as well~yummy! 5)One last thing~We don't mix the salad and dressing and all together because it gets too soggy too fast. We do an assembly line adding what you want and then each person can stir their portion. All 6 of my children & my hubby & my in-laws love this recipe!!

Homemade Lasagna
My family LOVES this recipe. I use the sauce for spaghetti, manicotti and of course the lasagna. I use ricotta cheese instead of the cottage cheese and I also use red pepper flakes to kick up the spice a bit. Always a huge hit!! I also triple the batch and put some sauce in the freezer.
