About this Cook
I've been married since 2001 and had my son in 2006. I'm always looking for healthy delicious recipes for dinner, but always leave room for dessert :-)
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy cooking, but I love to bake, especially cookies and cakes. Holidays are my excuse to make a variety of fun festive desserts.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We always make a special breakfast on Thanksgiving and Christmas before we being prepping the delicious dinner.
My cooking tragedies
My funniest cooking mistake was forgetting about the bag of giblets in the Turkey before prepping and cooking the bird. We were all a little surprised when the bag fell out during carving!

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup
We make this recipe at least once a month, more when the weather is cooler. It's super quick to prep in the morning before work and come home to a delicious meal waiting for you.

Pork Chops for the Slow Cooker
I made this as directed and couldn't eat it. The house smelled wonderful when I got home from work, but we each took a few bites and decided to go out to eat.

Easy Baked Tilapia
I thought the recipe was a little boring as written. Next time I'll use this as a base and add my own spices.
