About this Cook
Never been married, never had kids, have a boyfriend & 2 dogs. Enjoy playing soccer, reading books, walking, summer weekends spent on the lake, 4-wheeling, & getting dirty. Looking forward to traveling around in our camper this fall! Cook for others & entertain whenever I can. The first thing I think when friends tell me they're getting married or having a baby is, "ooh - I get to cook for a party!"
My favorite things to cook
Anything new & appetizers!
My favorite family cooking traditions
It's not much, but we try a new dish at every holiday meal.
My cooking triumphs
Baby shower for 80 - doing my favorite - heavy hors d'ouevres.
My cooking tragedies
Cold cucumber soup - my siblings won't let me live that down.

French Baguettes
Easy & delicious! Definitely adds that extra touch of "homemade" to anything you use the baguettes for.

Chili Rubbed Pork Tenderloin With Apricot Ginger Glaze
Outstanding! Contrast of spicy/sweet/tangy was delicious. Rub & sauce would be great on chicken as well. My picky boyfriend said "yum" as soon as he took a bite - I was surprised!

Pizza Dip
It comes out better if you put pepperoni slices ON TOP of the cheese so the cheese doesn't get brown & crusty. Add in other toppings as you like them on top of the sauce.....sausage, mushrooms, peppers, etc. I serve with Fritos Scoops - they hold up well to the cheese. ALWAYS a hit at parties!
