About this Cook
I'm a stay at home mom to 3 boys and 1 girl. Married 14 years to Randy.
My favorite things to cook
I love to try new things, and try to duplicate foods from restaurants. When we lived in the midwest/plains states, we really enjoyed game.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We have always lived away from our family and we always do a full spread for Thanksgiving. I love having my kids at my elbow in the kitchen, just like I was to my mom and grandma!
My cooking triumphs
Well, right now I consider a triumph as anything the kids try. But, I was really proud of roasting a goose last Thanksgiving!
My cooking tragedies
Well, given my husband was very picky when we met, I've had more occasions where I've said, "just because you don't like it doesn't mean it isn't good"...but, I would have to say the brined turkey was not a good idea!

Chicken Souvlaki Gyro Style
This was amazing! The chicken marinated for almost 3 hours - so tender and juicy - and flavorful! Paired really well with the "buffet style" fixings - peppers, olives, cucumber, etc. I had store bought tzatziki sauce, but regardless, this is recipe was a keeper (even the 3 coworkers my hubby brought home were impressed!) Thanks!!
