About this Cook
Actually, I only cook because I have a family to feed...I'd love to have someone cook for us a few times a week! I do love gathering recipes and have lots of cookbooks!
My favorite things to cook
I try to stick to recipes for cooking poultry since my husband prefers it. He grew up on a farm where beef was a daily meal so he's pretty tired of beef.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving at my Aunt and Uncles house. Everyone brings a potluck dish and my Uncle smokes a turkey, yum! Culturally we tend to have a huge variety of main dishes and tons of left overs for the next day as well!
My cooking triumphs
My baking was always a hit when I was single (that was pretty much all I made for pot-lucks!)
My cooking tragedies
First Thanksgiving I made gravy and kept adding and adding corn starch until it looked like a pile of mashed potatoes! UGH! That meant no gravy for our turkey! The following year a friend brought packaged gravy "just in case".

Beef and Guinness(R) Stew
I've been looking for a good stew recipe for many years and after trying about five or six different recipes from this website alone I was ready to give up. My teenage son has always told me he does not like stew but I was determined to find one that we could all enjoy. This one sounded interesting with dark beer in the ingredient so I thought I would try it. I couldn't find Guinness so I purchased another dark beer. One other change was that I used tomato sauce since I had no tomato paste. After cooking the bacon and browning the beef I put everything in a crock pot for six hours on low. I was very pleasantly surprised at how good this stew turned out and my son enjoyed it as well! This will be my go to stew recipe! Yum!

Easy Garlic Broiled Chicken
I had four boneless/skinless thighs but no idea what to to with them. I wanted a quick easy meal with ingredients that I already had at home so luckily I found this recipe. It was tasty and simple to make! The next time I'll try 1/4 cup olive oil and 1/4 cup butter which seems a tad more healthy.
