About this Cook
I am a wife of a hard working man and mom of 2 great kids. Outside the home, I am a medical assistant. We also have a Red lab named Jeb who is great at retrieving socks:)
My favorite things to cook
Desserts and breakfast items are my specialty. I enjoy decorating cakes and have a small cake business. I like to cook on Sundays when I have extra time to cook a big meal.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every other Thanksgiving, my husband fries a turkey and I make the side dishes. Fun and good! Christmas morning, we have monkey bread, sausage, eggs, potatoes. Then for Christmas dinner we have huge burgers with a variety of toppings, yummy!
My cooking triumphs
Anytime when I try something new and my family likes it. Cakes and desserts usually go over pretty good. Most recipes from this site work out well:)
My cooking tragedies
Some "cake disasters." I made hash browns from scratch for my hubby when we were newly married. He didn't like them and I cried for an hour! I definately learned to not be so sensitive about my cooking. If he-or we don't like it, try something else! Now I make hashbrowns from scratch and he likes them:)

Dale's Swedish Meatballs
I made the meatballs only. Delicious! I did not put in the green pepper as the hubby doesn't like them. I will if he is not eating them. Great flavor, tender and NOT DRY! I used a can of cream of chicken soup, about 1/2 cup of sour cream, 1/2 soup can of milk and fresh pepper mixed for the sauce. I browned the meatballs and cooked them for about 1 1/2 hours in the sauce. Served over mashed potatoes=perfect comfort food!! Thanks for the recipe!

Spanish Rice Bake
This recipe gets a 4 for flavor and a 3 for texture. Next time I make I will layer the meat mixture with either crushed tortilla chips, corn chips or corn tortilla shells. The meat mixture is delicious, just is all the same texture. I added some minced garlic to the meat while cooking. I added black beans and green chilis under the delicious blanket of cheese. I did add crushed tortilla chips on top but was thinking while making it that I should have layered it and I was right. (Per our taste) I'll bet this would make great enchilada filling! Thanks for the recipe!

Korean BBQ Chicken Marinade
wow. I used 3/4 cup of brown sugar instead of the white. 4 cloves of garlic, fresh ginger, 3 teaspoons of chili paste. Yummmmmmmm! I used this on chicken tenders that marinated overnight then grilled. Served with mac n cheese, which was good, but my family would have preferred rice. Very tasty, a little sweet and nice kick. I think I will use the 4 teaspoons next time, I have never cooked with the chili paste so wasn't sure how hot it was. Overall, great flavor!!
