Me and my inspiration
Taco Salad I
About this Cook
I live in Illinois with my husband of seven years and our two daughters. We have two cats too. I love cooking for friends and family. The best part about a recipe is when you see people taste it for the first time.
My favorite things to cook
I love baking, because it fills the house with such wonderful smells. I am getting good at breads especially. I also like using my slow cooker. With two kids and busy days, it is a great way to have a home cooked meal with no fuss.
My cooking triumphs
Cooking my first Thanksgiving dinner for my extended family of 22. I was so proud that everything turned out delicios. The following Easter, I made the best ham I have ever tasted. It was a great slow cooker recipe that I got from this website using just brown sugar.
My cooking tragedies
During my first year of marriage I attempted home-made chili. It is my grandfather's recipe. I worked all day on the chili, and when it came time to eat it, it was terrible! I have made a huge pot of it and we ended up freezing it for a while thinking we could use it for something. We ended up throwing out all of it. I haven't made home-made chili since!

Black and White Pizza
A great way to get kids more beans! I left off the peppers, because my kids are not fans. Otherwise the pizza had great flavor. Thanks for the great starter recipe!

Champagne Pie
This was very sweet. I did not taste any Champagne flavor. The reason I gave it 3 stars is because my guests really enjoyed it.
