About this Cook
I've always enjoyed cooking and now that my children are grown I enjoy using my extra time experimenting a little more in the kitchen, and working hard on broadening my cooking horizons. My two favorite cooking methods are grilling in warm weather and slow cooking in cold weather. I work full time outside the home,so most of my "fun" cooking is done on the weekends and holidays.
My favorite things to cook
I don't know that I have a favorite thing to cook. I really enjoy everything from baking, to grilling. I've recently taken on yeast breads and have enjoyed trying various recipes in that regard.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Roast beef with potatoes and carrots was always a Sunday tradition growing up and I've carried that over with my family. Don't do it quite so much anymore, since the kids are grown and the golf course seems to call my name on Sundays, now :D
My cooking triumphs
I don't know about any particular triumphs, but my most requested recipes are my beef enchiladas, my baked beans and my pepper steak.
My cooking tragedies
The one that comes to mind is when I was making vegetable beef soup in the crock pot (one of our favorite meals). After chopping all the veggies the night before, I got up in the morning, threw everything in the crockpot, went to work and couldn't wait to go home to the yummy smell of soup, not to mention the satisfaction in knowing that dinner would already be done when I got home. Well, much to my dismay, I was not welcomed with the wonderful aroma of my soup, because I didn't turn my crockpot on! Needless to say, I was not a happy camper that day! I'm sure there are other cooking tragedies, but I try to block them out of my mind, so I can't think of any right now.

Jan's Loaded Pizza Fries
We loved these! Of course, what's not to love, right? Fries, cheese, pizza! Yum! I used Red Robin steak fries from the freezer section of my grocery store and they were the perfect size for holding up all those yummy toppings! I added black olives and used the mini pepperoni. I served these for dinner with some fresh pineapple. Best dinner we've had all week! Thanks for sharing, WFDM!!

Jan's Simple and Tasty Egg Rolls
These were a hit at our house! I had some leftover cooked chicken to use, so I subbed it for the shrimp. I also cut the salt and pepper in half. I can easily see adding green onion and other veggies with great results, too. Thanks for sharing your recipe what's for dinner, mom!

Simple Hush Puppies
The recipe title is fitting, as these were very simple to make. I highly recommend using a deep fryer, unless you can regulate the heat on your stovetop to a consistent temperature. I had to make these on the stovetop and my first batch was perfect, however, my oil got too hot for the next batch and the outsides burned before the inside was able to cook. We thought the flavor and consistency of these was very good and I would easily make these again using a deep fryer. Thanks for the recipe, myka!
