About this Cook
Mom to 3, wife of 20+ years, and former restaurant owner who loves good food and sharing it with others. I love to find staple recipes that turn out great very time!
My favorite things to cook
French dip, chicken, soups, cookies, mexican food, chinese food, fish (salmon and tilapia), marinaded meat, cakes, and desserts.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Mom's pies are incredible! My Mom and aunts are incredible cooks so I get a lot of great recipes ideas from them. It's like a cook-off/bake-off when we gather for Christmas. I plan to make a family cookbook that my kids to cherish and use with their families.
My cooking triumphs
Fixing 3 homemade soups a day at my restaurant!

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies
My family and friends loved these cookies. I will add more oats next time and I used real butter for the shortening portion as I like a buttery taste. I will try next time with half whole wheat flour to make them healthier. This one's a keeper!

Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms II
I used a spicey pork sausage and added salt and pepper with a 1/2 cup of bread crumbs. They were DELICIOUS and super easy!

Sesame Pasta Chicken Salad
I got great feedback after bringing to a potluck. I do cut back on the vegetable oil and only put in 1/4 c because I don't like oiley pasta. This is a keeper!
