About this Cook
Mom to two exceptional humans, MIL to two other exceptional humans, Nana to three grand darlings, engaged to the best guy ever (aka Better Half) and mom to two Goofydoodles (aka Goldendoodles).
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook. Period. I can't think of a favorite thing - I just love to feed people! I probably cook Mexican foods the most because that's what Better Half and I love to eat, but I also bake as much as I can get away with. I am a cookie monster - love to make 'em, love to eat 'em - but I also love making cakes, cupcakes and pies.
My cooking triumphs
Like any other cook, I just love hearing, "that's the best ____ I have ever had!" The grands have told me that about my scrambled eggs (?!), meatloaf and tacos, one has said that frequently about my deviled eggs, and a future SIL has said that about my sweet potato souffle.

Easy Slow Cooker Sweet and Sour Pork Chops
WOW. This recipe is a keeper and going into our regular rotation. Better Half LOVED these chops - they were tender, juice and delicious. He took one bite and said, "WOW." Took another bite and said, "This sauce would be great on ribs too - this is wonderful!" So we'll try it on ribs soon. I followed the recipe except for adding about a tablespoon (maybe two) of Shiracha sauce. We like things with a bit of bite to them and can't wait to have these again. Thank you Bonnie D for a truly delightful pork recipe!

Baked Salmon II
Excellent marinade that beautifully enhances the flavor of salmon. One of those "Doh! Why didn't I think of that?!?" sort of recipes. I followed it exactly - so easy, "fast food" at home, and Better Half (who claims to hate fish) loved it. This is going into our standard rotation of meals. I served it with a baked sweet potato and bacon-onion braised green beans. Delicious!

Caramel Snack Mix
Wow. This is one awesome recipe! I made some to give away as Christmas treats and Better Half was SO upset that I didn't save any for us. He promptly went out and bought the ingredients for our own batch. It's that good. It turned out perfectly, but I did have to work very hard to get it out of the baking pan after it cooled. I think I should've kept stirring it until it was cool enough to take out. I'll be reading the other reviews to see how others avoided that problem. Thanks for this super recipe!
