About this Cook
I decided I needed to learn how to cook when I got tired of my husband's "everything but the kitchen sink" stir fry (which often included hot dogs!).
My favorite things to cook
If it says "healthy," count me out. I feel that if you keep an eye on everything you eat, you can eat healthfully and be well rounded.
My favorite family cooking traditions
green bean casserole, mashed potatoes and a giant turkey. This typically happened anytime a turkey was on sale... holiday or not.
My cooking triumphs
My first turkey for my husband and friends.
My cooking tragedies
Tofu. I tried it once and it was so horrible, I'll never do it again. I'll leave that to my husband.

Cheddar-Thyme Flaky Biscuits
I love the versatility of this recipe! I didn't have any thyme, so I used 1 finely diced and seeded jalapeno. Delicious! Now I'm making mozzarella- roasted garlic flaky biscuits. I can't wait until my husband gets home!

Amish Meatloaf
I really liked this recipe and so did my husband. It was nice to hear that my meatloaf wasn't "punishment" like his mother's was! After reading many of the reviews, I opted to leave the sugar out of the recipe and it turned out fabulous. It really sets up after a day (if your family can't eat it all, that is!).
