About this Cook
I'm a homeschooling mom of two in Illinois. I love to cook delicious meals for my family. The dinner table is a special place for us so I strive to create good meals. Allrecipes has been such a wonderful find for me. I don't even visit other recipe sites because all I need is here!
My favorite things to cook
Unique desserts, traditional homemade meals, Mexican and Chinese cuisine.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Once a week my five year old daughter plans an entire meal by herself and helps me make it. It is such a fun time for us. It makes her feel special. As a bonus, she's learning math with all of the measurements!
My cooking triumphs
I can't really put my finger on any specific triumphs in the kitchen. I have become pretty adept at seasoning dishes in my own way. I usually don't follow the seasonings in recipes. I would like to conquer my fear of fried chicken and homemade bread. Someday...
My cooking tragedies
Just lately while making frosting I mistakenly used flour in place of powdered sugar. I could not figure out why it was so dry until I tasted it... yuck!

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup
I knew my husband would love this soup so I made it for him, knowing I wouldn't care for it. Surprisingly, I loved it! It is such a perfect soup as our nights are getting cooler. It was a too spicy for my kids but with enough cheese and chips, they ate it. A new fav from Allrecipes!

Chocolate Gravy II
This was just not as good as I've had in the past. It was really dark for chocolate gravy. I'd probably be rating it higher if I had never tried chocolate gravy before.
