About this Cook
I'm fortunate enought to be staying at home with my kids. Although I love to try complicated, interesting, non-traditional recipes, I head for the Qick and Easy and the Crock Pot for now. When the kids are all in school, i might have enough time to get back to that. then the issue is whether or not the family is brave enough to try something new! I also love to garden and would like any recipes that call for fresh herbs and vegetables.
My favorite things to cook
Fresh, fresh, fresh food from the garden. Simple yet elegant types of things.
My cooking triumphs
Some really good pasta sauces. Of course, I have no idea how I made them!
My cooking tragedies
My husband!

Slow Cooker Bean Casserole AKA Sweet Chili
This is similar to a recipe my mom used to make. She used a variety of beans in addition to baked beans (black, pinto, garbonzo, etc.). My changes are to use pre-cooked bacon and crumbled raw burger. I like to skip the stove-top step in crockpost recipes to save time and clean-up.

High Temperature Eye-of-Round Roast
THE BEST! i had a 5 lb roast, and we don't like it too red (well, I do, but the kids get kind of grossed out). To get it a little closer to medium I roasted it at 475 for 39 minutes. after 90 minutes in the turned-off oven, the meat thermometer read 125, but I figured it had definitely been up to at least 145, as it should be. I took it out and covered it with tin foil. While the roast rested, I put fries in the oven and made up a package of Aus Jus mix, adding the small amount of juice and scrapings from the bottom of the roasting pan. The roast was sooo warm and juicy when I cut into it! I got out my handy, dandy Electric Food Slicer, and sliced up the roast very thin. Then, I warmed the beef in the aus jus for a few minutes. Finally, while the meat soaked, I make up some 'Weck rolls. Slice fresh deli kaisers, place them face down on a cookie sheet, and brush with a small amount of water. While still damp, grind coarse salt on the tops of the rolls. Pop them in the oven for a few miutes to toast. Serve sliced beef on the rolls with aus jus on the side. Horseradish is a great compliment!

Alfredo Sauce
quick and easy-loved by all. I only post a review when my family actually says 'this is really good, Mom!'
