About this Cook
I am a happily married stay-at-home-mom to 9 beautiful children and I love to cook, I been doing just that ever since I was quite young. My grandmother and my mother were both excellent cooks, and each taught me many valuable tips, methods and recipes over the years. I love cooking for family get-togethers and I take great pride in preparing healthy and delicious meals for my loved ones.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite thing to make is a huge batch of sauteed veggies, consisting of sliced zucchini, yellow squash, mushrooms, red, yellow and green sweet peppers, onions, minced garlic and salt & pepper. I can then serve it over pasta with a dab of sour cream and some grated parmesan cheese, or wrapped in tortillas as veggie tacos, or as the filling for a pan of enchiladas, or even as a topping for our pizza. We all love it. I also love trying new recipes since you never know what amazing dish you will come across, and there are so many new and delicious ones out there still waiting for me to make them!
My favorite family cooking traditions
We sit down every single night as a family for supper, all of us. It keeps us connected as a family no matter what else is going on throughout the day.
My cooking triumphs
I am currently working on mastering our outdoor grill, and was so excited to make grill bread for the first time, it was delicious and has since become our favorite summer grilling recipe. I also made grilled pizza a few nights later and it was also just as yummy. I don't know why I thought it would be hard to make grill bread/pizza, but it's easier than I ever thought.
My cooking tragedies
I tried a new recipe once for a side dish, a zucchini and cheese casserole, and it was so bad that there wasn't a single one of us that could choke it down. We still talk about how horrible that dish was. Ugh.

Dad's Hamburger Gravy
We loved this! I followed the recipe exactly, except I reduced the meat to only 1 lb. and I used ground turkey instead of beef. The end results were seriously delicious, and this recipe is going straight into my "keeper" file. Thank you!

Basic Fondue
Delicious! I followed the recipe exactly except I omitted the ground mustard since I was out of it, and I tossed the shredded cheese with some flour as recommended by another review . It turned out perfectly, and the entire batch fit perfectly into my 2 quart mini crock pot, on "LOW", where it stayed the perfect temp for our dinner. The kids loved dipping all sorts of fun veggies in the yummy fondue, and I loved how fast and easy it was to throw together. Thank you for sharing this gem of a recipe, this is a keeper!

Creamy Vegetable Sandwich Spread
Delicious! I halved the recipe since I only had one package of cream cheese, and I also mixed in about 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese. My kids love this spread on tortillas with a few slices of ham and rolled up, it's so good and makes a quick and yummy lunch. Thanks for sharing, this is a keeper!
