I am a wife and mother of 2.

My cooking tragedies
Ugh, many cakes that flopped in the summer humidity before we had air conditioning. OH and that chocolate swirled cheese cake that I brought to a friends house for dinner! I couldn't figure out why it was taking so long to cook and the center still looked gooey! We ate the outer edeges which were yummy, but the rest went in the trash. I re-read the recipe later and found out it was a double recipe! RULE # 1-- Always read your recipe all the way through before you start to cook!!

Brown Sugar Meatloaf
The kids call it sweet meat! They love it but it is on the sweet side. I reduced the brown sugar just a bit. To those who question why it is in the bottom of the pan: it allows the flavors to steam into the meatloaf and not dry it out. You are supposed to remove it from the pan by inverting it onto a plate to serve and then your sauce IS on TOP! Simple and yummy!

Anna's Linguica and Potato Stew
Everyone loved it. I have only made Linguica with egg and or pepper sandwiches. This was a nice dish and smelled as great as it tastes. I like to remove the skin from the Linguica as well as other types of sausages. Otherwise followed the directions and it was perfect. (I think different types of potatoes cook better in crockpots, try small white or red potatoes they cooked up fine in the amount of time stated.) Served with warm Portugese Bread. (I downsized the recipe to serve 8 and it came out great using a 4qt crock pot.)

Easy and Delicious Chicken
This is the best. Quick, easy and delicious! I have made it as is, and also with cream of mushroom in place of the cream of chicken. I have also made it with london broil, beef broth, and cream of mushroom. My family loves it and asks for it once a week!! Great if you are on the run it cooks all day, with no defrosting. Love It!!!!
