Halloween Brain Dip
About this Cook
I'm a married mom of 2 small kids that works outside the home full time. I enjoy reading, gardening, hiking & thrift store shopping!
My favorite things to cook
Appetizers, chili, soup & stews, barbeque, slow cooker recipes, seafood dishes & all things Mexican.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I come from a big extended family & love pitch-in dinners, especially Thanksgiving at my aunt & uncles farm in southwest Ohio.
My cooking triumphs
I love to have people over & my favorite things to make are appetizers. I've hosted couples showers, baby showers, wedding showers & inpromptu neighborhood get-togethers with relative ease using simple, make-ahead dishes or on-hand ingredients.
My cooking tragedies
I haven't figured out the timing needed for dinner parties. A few Christmas's ago we had tenderloin of beef with cold rosemary roasted potatoes & soggy asparagus.

Asian Lettuce Wraps
Two thumbs up from my picky kids & they liked it so much they took it to lunch the following day! I used a half lb. ground turkey and half lb. ground pork mix, which kept the meat moist & flavorful. I also minced fresh ginger and let it cook with the onions, and used low sodium Asian sauces. Very easy to prepare & ready in a flash, this recipe will definetely go into our weeknight rotation.

Slow Cooker Carnitas
Everyone who ate this took one bite and declared they'd died & gone to heaven. I didn't change a thing to the recipe but I might make 2 the next time just so I have more leftovers. We ate this over rice, on tortillas, as a nacho topper and cold out of the storage container with a fork. Delicious every time.

Pumpkin Bread IV
This was fantastic! I divided this into a large loaf (1 hr bake time), a small loaf (45 min bake time), regular sized muffins (30 min bake time) and mini muffins (15 minute bake time). All were delicious. I also mixed up the toppings, adding chopped pecans to some and drizzled powdered sugar glaze to others. I had neighbors for coffee & everyone, kids included, loved them. I had 4 requests for the recipe after the first batch! I'm not a very good baker, but this recipe was easy & will definetely be a repeat recipe in my household!
