About this Cook
I recently had a baby girl and am now staying home with her. I am looking forward to having some time to do more experimenting and learning with my cooking.
My favorite things to cook
I do a lot of comfort food. For potlucks, I am only allowed to bring a few things. By the time the list gets to me, my name is already listed under some catagories depending on the type of potluck.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Our cooking traditions are done mostly around the holidays. We have to have our Christmas Breakfast Casserole on Christmas morning or it doesn't seem like Christmas. We also do a lot of recipe sharing amoung the women of my family.
My cooking triumphs
I had a birthday party for my daughter and made these really cute chicken bites using puff pastry and a recipe for hot chicken salad that I already have. They tasted great and looked really pretty too!
My cooking tragedies
For some reason, I have a really hard time making anything in the crockpot. A roast in the crockpot is usually dry, but bring it to the table from the oven and it is really good and juicy.

Shepherd's Pie Daddy's Way
Really good. The combination of the meat, soup and cheese melted together and made a cheesy, creamy blend that tasted excellent!!! The second time I made this, I added frozen corn on top of the meat mixture before the american cheese and added shredded co-jack cheese on top of the potatoes. My husband whom normally doesn't Shepherd's Pie thought this was really good and said he would like it again.

French Toast Casserole
We thought it was really good!! It smelled heavenly while baking!! We followed the recipe exactly but the edges didn't get any egg mixture so we made a bit more of the egg mixture with one more egg to soak all of the bread.

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes
This is my first time making pancakes from scratch. I made these as written for my first try. They were good and my daughter devoured them. I felt the batter was a touch thick for my tastes. Next time I make them, I will try to omit the salt, add a touch more sugar and a bit more milk. I may also try some of the other suggestions. I will be making these again though!!
