About this Cook
I am a single, working mom of 2 wonderful boys. Matthew is 21 and Nicholas is 15. They keep me on my toes and boy do they love to eat! I found allrecipes a few years ago looking for new recipes and have found many wonderful recipes my kids love.
My favorite things to cook
The slow cooker is now my BFF! I confess that I am a soupaholic! I bring soup for lunch everday to work.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking special dishes that are requested by my family for the holidays.
My cooking triumphs
Anything I cook that my boys rate a "5" :) Their favorite so far is the Cioppino from this site.
My cooking tragedies
When I was cooking something special for my boyfriend at the time and put too many red pepper flakes in the dish. It wasn't a pretty picture..... :)

Fantastic Black Bean Chili
This was very good! I used a 28oz can of crushed tomatoes. I also added a can of diced jalapenos and some cumin. Loved it!

Best Spanish Rice
This was very good. I cut back the rice to 1 cup and kept the salsa and chicken broth the same. Went very well with our enchiladas.

Debdoozie's Blue Ribbon Chili
This was very good. After reading the reviews, I too, used fresh garlic instead of salt and added a can of Rotel. I also put in 2 cans of chili beans and a can of diced jalapenos. Even better the next day!
