About this Cook
I was thrown into cooking by my mother at an early age. I was never much for cleaning my room and this was her trade off. Since then I've come to love cooking for family and friends, especially my husband. I regularly work long, odd hours, so crock-pot and quick & easy recipes are my staple.
My favorite things to cook
I'm always trying new quick dinner recipes to find the right ones. My husband will tell you my chili and rice salad are probably my best. I'm also a fan of grilling and try to get as much of it in as possible.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Right now my favorite newly created tradition is that the cook never has to do the dishes!!!
My cooking triumphs
For my Mother in Law's birthday I fixed Mussels alla Diavola. It was a big chance given her family's dislike for seafood, but it went over very well. My picky father-in-law even asked for seconds!
My cooking tragedies
Oh... there have been several. The worst would be my first attempt at brining a turkey. Not sure what went wrong, but a 14lb turkey found it way to the trash that night.

Banana Muffins II
I added 3 tbsp. of chia seeds to the mix as well as 1 tbsp. of olive oil. The texture was good, I thought it could have been a little sweeter. The kids and the hubby liked them, so we'll do them again.

Absolute Mexican Cornbread
This was some great tasting bread. The edges where perfectly crunchy-crispy and the center was moist and flavorful. I did not include the peppers due to the company I was cooking for, but I think they would have made it that much better. I paired it with a pulled pork and it certainly made the dish. My only complaint is the amount of butter. I followed the directions even though my gut said this was too much. Well... it was too much. I'll try 3/4 cup next time and see if that helps with the greasiness.

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles
They were simple and they came out great. We had two very happy men on Fathers day.
