About this Cook
Loving the Lord with my wonderful husband and fanstastic son.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make things up with veggies, pasta, all kinds of meats using different spices and cooking tecniques. We eat a lot of game meat, because my husband hunts a lot so I try and do new things with what we have.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom is a "from scratch" traditional cook. I have taken a lot from her including canning and baking. However I am a little more inclined to get away from the fried foods and try baking with out all of the heavy gravies.
My cooking triumphs
I make a pretty tasty lasagna that my husband raves about. Some of my made up recipes (that I dont usually write down OOPS) have been big hits. In 4H I recieved quite a few awards ribbons etc for my cooking. Except once!
My cooking tragedies
My first 4H cooking experience was horrible!!! Everyone expected me to do sooo well. To say the least my molasses cookies were paper thin and covered the whole bottom of the cookie sheet. Oh and over cooked stir fry because the baby is crying will get your hubby to take you out for dinner because it really is nasty!!!

Fluffy Pancakes
Sooo excellent... make just the way it says but make sure you cook a little longer than a regular pancake or you may get a gooey center. AMAZING!

Creamy Banana Bread
OH my soo good! I substituted half of the white sugar for brown sugar. ( Cream cheese and brown sugar are amazing together) I didnt have nuts and my family doesnt like cinnamon type things too much so I sprinkled peanut butter and chocolate chips in the layer instead... OUTSTANDING~

Cake Balls
This recipe was just ok to me. The process of dipping the balls was extreemly messy, time consuming and in the end the flavor was just ok. I used chocolate fudge cake and peppermint frosting and dipped in both chocolate and vanilla almond bark. I am glad others have had such amazing success, but this recipe was just not for me.

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