About this Cook
Hi, My name Is Stephanie and I LOVE TO COOK!! The funny thing is, when my husband and I got married, I couldn't boil water. Three years into the our married life, my husband bought me a Better Homes and Gardens cookbook, I made French Onion soup for the first time, and the rest is history. I love to cook, and have done several formal dinners, and funeral dinners at church. The kids at church ask me if I live in the kitchen. My dream is have a catering business someday!!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook meals that are inexpensive and easy. I love when my kids ask to me to make this dish again. I love using my crock pot!! I also love to make up dishes from leftovers that use what I have and my family loves it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
At Easter, we make the Easter Cookies, that I get from Allrecipes. My inlaws come over and we all make the cookies as a family and it helps the kids understand the true meaning of Christmas.
My cooking triumphs
I make better meatloaf than my mother in law!! I also made a 1,000 muffins for church three years ago. It took 17 1/2 hours of baking, but I did it!
My cooking tragedies
The first time I grilled chicken for my inlaws. It was beautiful on the outside, raw on the inside. It has been 13 years and I have not lived that down. Also, the first apple pie I made. It had a beautiful domed crust, but it was hard as a rock and just as tough to eat. My wonderful husband at it anyway!!

Easter Story Cookies
This has become an Easter tradition at my house. My whole family gets involved and we each take a part. It makes my mother in law cry every time. Such a wonderful way to experience the Easter Story!
