About this Cook
NOT MUCH TO TELL... I am married, have kids (4 boys, 1 granddaughter), work and lead a pretty normal life I guess. I am pretty involved in volunteering and trying to do my part to make the world a better place. I love to cook but hate the clean up so I like to find short cuts where I can. We like to camp so I also like to find new camping recipes, especially ones for the pie iron!
My favorite things to cook
Cookies Cakes Candy
My favorite family cooking traditions
I always bake cookies for the holidays and always try to make at least a couple new cookie recipes each year. I love to bake my boys a birthday cake on their birthdays - they have never had a store bought birthday cake! =) I love to create or try a new pie iron recipe every time we go camping. We enjoy trying new recipes together and all my boys can cook.
My cooking triumphs
I think every time you sit down as a family around the table with a hot, homecooked meal it is a triumph for us working Moms!
My cooking tragedies
I always (and I mean always) burn the rolls especially at large family gatherings like Thanksgiving so I have been permanently relieved of roll duty! =)

Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese
Loved it - followed recipe except cut back on the bread crumbs (because it isn't a personal favorite). Will definitely make again!

Spicy Bean Salsa
Thanks for the recipe Susan! I made this as instructed and it turned out wonderful. After it sat for a couple of days in the fridge it was incredible. I definitely would make it at least 24 hours in advance and 48 if you can. I also added cilantro the second time I made it and loved the addition, but the recipe is great as is!
