About this Cook
I am 31 years old and love to cook! I remember as a little girl standing on a chair in the kitchen begging my mom to stir or help in any way. My favorite thing then, and still is, is licking the beaters!
My favorite things to cook
I love to try anything, but my claim to fame is being a down home cooker. I love traditional recipes, and I LOVE baking!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Is holiday cooking.
My cooking triumphs
Winning grand champion as a child in our local 4H fair.
My cooking tragedies
Took me FOREVER to learn to make gravy. Still get nervous making it.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup
This is the second time I have made this recipe. The first time I doubled (whoa, needed two crock pots, and it made ALOT, but I have a family of seven) this time I made the way it was written. The first time I also used Bill Echols taco seasoning from this site like many other reviewers suggested. I LOVED it and my family ate it. BUT alot of them commented on the spiciness. I used the Taco Bell seasoning packet this time. Only confusion I have is whether I should drain/rinse the black beans, what does everyone else use. BTW my 3 year old, picky eater, LOVES this.
