I recently took my girl scouts on a campout. We planned to stay in Covered Wagons! Cool, right? Yep until my girls discovered we would be roughing it. Outdoor latrines, no running water and most of all cooking over the fire only.  My girls and I were up to the task. We set out to create our… MORE

About this Cook
I have been married since 1995 and have 3 children. I started really cooking after I got married. I love hearing how great my cooking is. My kids are my best complimenters. I love talking to people about cooking and food! I have turned many non-cookers into cooks. My closest friend, for the longest time thought that baking a plain chicken breast was gourmet at its finest. I subscribed her to Taste of Home and introduced her to Allrecipes and now she cooks up a storm and its actually edible!
My favorite things to cook
I really enjoy cooking most anything. During tomato season my favorite thing would be spaghetti sauce. During the Fall, I really enjoy soup and at the holidays it would be the pies and cookies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
At the holidays I have always helped my mom do the baking. It wasn't until the last few years that I realized how much I truly enjoy this. I am trying to engage my children more in the kitchen. I am not always the most tolerant when it comes to this but I am making a great effort to include them. I am hoping that some day they will remember the time they spent with me in the kitchen.
My cooking triumphs
I made pies for Christmas one year at my In-laws house, it was great. Everyone raved and compared me to my husbands grandma, who passed away a couple of years ago. She was a truly fantastic cook and to be compared to her was wonderful.
My cooking tragedies
I remember trying to make a Pineapple Chicken dish when I was 16 for me and my brother. It was awful. The taste just wasn't right and the rice was undercooked. Needless to say the trash got more to eat than we did.

Spaghetti with Broccoli Florets and Traditional Sauce
This recipe was great for a quick weeknight meal. I used steamed broccoli in this dish. The sauce to me is a little bland. I definitely will doctor it up in the future. Such a nice simple weeknight dinner.

Modern Pasta e Fagioli
I really enjoyed this soup. It came together so easily and I loved that it was meat free. I had never had collard greens. They were interesting but not sure I would use them again in this. I would prefer using spinach. Thank you for a great recipe.
