About this Cook
Growing up both my parents loved cooking and now its in my blood! I'm a total foodie and my favorite thing to do is read cookbooks, food magazines and to walk the grocery store looking for ideas and new things to try.
My favorite things to cook
Its a toss up between BBQ ribs and the full on Thanksgiving turkey dinner.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Turkey dinners. The women in my family are so obsessed about turkey dinners that they cook them often throughout the year. Thanksgiving dinners are called "sundays" in our home!
My cooking tragedies
I tried to bake healthy thin mint cookies before. Total nightmare. The taste consisted of a toss between toothpaste and brownies.

Hungarian Goulash I
I made this two times now and am a big fan. The second time I cooked the onions as directed but then threw everything in the crock pot on low for 8 hours. It turned out perfect. Also, I have a hard time finding sweet paprika so I just use plaine but then add a pinch of brown sugar in the pot as well. Simple and hearty. Thank you for sharing the recipe.

Exquisite Pizza Sauce
I follow this recipe to the T and I think it's great. I remember thinking when I made it for the first time that it wouldnt turn out. The taste is strange in its raw form, but onces it's slathered onto pizza dough and baked into the over its perfect. Sweet, salty, and spicy. I too make a double batch and freeze what I dont use for next time. Thank you for sharing this recipe!

Flatlander Chili
I won a chili cook off with the recipe a few years ago! If you like spice add a chopped jalapeno for an additional kick. Thank you for this recipe!
