About this Cook
I've always enjoyed baking and I can still remember whipping up lots of Christmas cookies with my mom when I was a kid. However, having two small children has motivated me (or required me) to cook healthy meals on a daily basis. I'm always in search of the easiest meal to become part of our rotation and have relied on a slow cooker to make my life easier, as well. But I love creating a yummy dessert...especially cookies.
My favorite things to cook
Anything Italian: Sausage, peppers and onions, eggplant parmigiana, chicken cutlets, my sauce (although my meatballs are nothing like my mom's). I also love to make Creamy Butternut Squash Soup and Veggie Soup with Orzo.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Two words: Christmas cookies. Last year I even tried Struffoli, or honey balls, like my aunt used to make...not quite the same.
My cooking triumphs
Spaghetti with sauce and my hot sausage stuffed mushrooms. Those have to be the top Two. My husband loves my chocolate chip cookies and my brother loves my viennese cookies with hershey kisses in the middle.
My cooking tragedies
I get so disappointed when I'm excited about trying a new recipe and it turns out horrible. Let's see...there's the stringy pot roast...I'll think of more.

Slow Cooker Baby Back Ribs
This is the easiest and most wonderful recipe for ribs. I made them with Jack Daniels BBQ sauce and served them with risotto and steamed broccoli. Thanks for sharing this simple and comforting recipe!

Chocolate-Chocolate Chip Bacon Cookies
These are incredible! I didn't change a thing and neither should you. This will be my go-to chocolate chocolate chip cookie recipe as well. My little ones already requested it with mint chocolate chips! Thanks for sharing this true keeper of a recipe.

Mrs. Fields Cookie Recipe II
These were a huge hit for Valentine's day- fabulous cookie. Crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside when baked for 9 minutes. I used about 1 Tbs per cookie and it made 119 cookies. Took a long time- I bake one tray at a time- but completely worth the end result. Used a blender for the oatmeal and it worked out fine. You will not be disappointed, but Mom's Chocolate Chip Cookies is still our family favorite.
