About this Cook
I am an empty nester. I raised 3 sons basically on my own. I have 4 grandkids, 2 boys, 2 girls.I was born and raised in Nebraska, moving to Nevada in 2005. Just could not take the cold and snow any longer. I love to cook and try new things, just not much time to do it...oh well, someday maybe. I live with my SO, and we work different shifts, and have only 1 day off together, so not many big meals cooked at our house.
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook about anything. Grew up in a meat and potato house, so I really like to try new Italian, and mexican recipes. Also, like to make soups in the crockpot, and have just recently gotten into homemade breads (with the help of a bread machines dough cycle).
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making Christmas cookies, candies, and other goodies for family and coworkers.
My cooking triumphs
Anything that turns out like I think it should, and everyone likes!!
My cooking tragedies
Way too many to share!!

Just Like Wendy's(R) Chili
This was a nice change from our regular Chili recipe. I did forget the vinegar at the end, so will try to remember that for next time!!

Moist Chocolate Muffins
These are so good!! I usually sub sour cream or mayo for the yogurt, cause I always have one or the other on hand, otherwise, I wouldn't change a thing!!
