About this Cook
I am the proud mom of two kids, my daughter "M" 3yo and my son "R" 19mo. My husband and I work different shifts for our local police department, me as a 911 operator and my husband as a Deputy Sheriff so we don't have the family meal quite often. He is usually home w/the kids in the evenings while I am working and I am home during the day while he is working. Our schedule put a damper on meal times.
My favorite things to cook
I look for healthy, fast and slow cooker recipes. I hate the feeling that my husband and children will have to have "leftovers" for dinner so I perfer the slow cooker over a regular stove top meal unless I am off that day. My husband does more cooking than I do and it's by choice, his choice! I don't mind cooking, mostly by a slow cooker but I don't care for it nearly as much as he does and I don't know nearly as much about food as he does!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving at my Mom's house and Christmas Eve dinner, too!
My cooking tragedies
Almost everything...just kidding. I have had some, trust me...more than the 1000 characters max.

Vegetarian Chili
Very good! My husband didn't even know it was vegetarian; easy on the pockets and easy on the cook!

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup
This recipe has been a fantastic addition to our dinner menus. We love it. I replace the beer w/water instead. I have many girlfriends and coworkers who have used this recipe and loved it, too. We just keep passing it on! Thanks Patti for the delicious, easy and inexpensive dinner!

Something about the grill's heat brings out the best flavor in the simplest chicken recipe.
