About this Cook
I'm a singer/songwriter. I'm married and have 2 kids.
My favorite things to cook
A chicken and feta cheese recipe I found on PBS, my mom's lasagna and spicy tortilla soup I found on!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom's lasagna, fudge, chicken and noodles, chocolate cake, and "poor man's stew".
My cooking triumphs
The chicken and feta cheese recipe. The tastiest recipe I've found so far!
My cooking tragedies
I can't think of anything that has been tragic. Except for my friend thinking my cinnamon ornaments were cookies. Yuck!!

Unbelievably Easy and Delicious Vegetarian Chili
Love it! I used Soyrizo in stead of Veggie Crumbles and it's delicious!

Slow Cooker Pork Chops II
Tastes great and the chops are tender. I used Greek seasoning because I didn't have any poultry seasoning and it still works fine.

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup
I make this soup constantly! We love it here! The only things I do different are: I use cayenne pepper because I didn't have chili pepper on hand at first and I just crush regular tortilla chips on top in stead of making the tortillas. Also, I add black beans. This is so savory and spicy!
