About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
On Football Sundays my husbands friends always seem to make their way to my house for the "football" However, every time they come into the house they ask me "whats cooking?" I love to cook for all of them! Most of them are single and take out is the best they do during the week. Feeding them each week makes me feel good knowing that they get a little bit of home in each bite. My hubby loves the fact that I can impress his friends and they all are looking for a woman like me. Also, believe it or not, they always offer to help clean up! Not that I would let them into my kitchen! :-)
My cooking triumphs
Cooking for around 30 people each Christmas and Thanksgiving! From turkey, ham, dressings, veggies, and pies I get nothing but WOW! That makes my year!!
My cooking tragedies
Don't ever get distracted while doing stuff in the kitchen! Eggs left boiling on the stove WILL blow up all over your kitchen after a while. Then you can't get the smell out for months!!! Beginners mistake! My college room mate will never let me forget that horrible accident!

Grandma VanDoren's White Bread
Great recipe!!! The only addition I made was a slight egg wash brushed on top before baking. My picky husband said it's the best homemade bread he's ever had. And my even pickier 6 year old begged to have her sandwiches for school made from it and told me to leave the crust on!!! She NEVER eats crust!! So a win, win, win recipe! Happy hubby! Happy kids! Happy mom!!

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I
I think this is a great stew as is for anyone wanting a simple crockpot stew! The only change I made was adding some frozen peas. I just need peas in my stew to make it perfect, however I think next time.... And there will be a next time...I will just add thawed (and drained) peas at the end. I think the water from the frozen ones added too much liquid to the juice so it didn't thicken at all. But even with my juice being more watery it still tasted great!

Herb, Garlic and Bacon Pork Loin
This was a great meal! The only thing I changed was the cooking temp. I started it out at 350 for thirty minutes then I turned it down to 325 for the remainder of the time. I followed the 1-1/2 hours with lid and then 1/2 hour without lid and I still had to cook it a little longer to get it to reach the internal temp of 160. I think it might be a good idea to make sure you check the meat temp if you use the lower 300 oven temp. Either that or plan on cooking it longer. My oven, by the way, was just checked for temp accuracy which we all know can make huge differences. Over all this was a wonderful recipe! I followed it word for word otherwise! I will be making it again!
