About this Cook
Hello! I'm a wife to 1 and mom to 4. I live in the midwest and I love to bake and cook big family dinners. My children love to help out in the kitchen, everyone loves to hang out and talk and make some great food!
My favorite things to cook
I'm working towards learning to make more vegan foods. I would love to convert my kitchen to entirely vegan soon.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Breakfast pizza Christmas morning, pizzelles for Christmas, all our favorite Thanksgiving foods we have to have every year. We have favorite foods everyone looks forward to every holiday.
My cooking triumphs
I can't think of anything specific- I'm particularly proud of some of my birthday cakes I've decorated.
My cooking tragedies
I remember (and I KNOW my husband does), when I tried a new chicken recipe very early on in our message. It had orange juice in it- and it was AWFUL. Being a sweet husband, he choked it down anyway. I did tell him to stop eating it after I had taken a couple of bites- he was VERY grateful! I can't think of anything else since that has gone THAT wrong!

Mom's Casserole
This is a family favorite, we keep this in frequent rotation. I always double the recipe and bake in a larger casserole dish.
