About this Cook
Live on a working beef cattle and crop farm in Michigan. My wonderful husband and I have 2 children ages 4 and 10 months old. Our farm is lovely and our cattle are well kept after, we really enjoy our farming lifestyle.
My favorite things to cook
Well, if you read the above, then you know my answer is Beef! I am always looking for recipes that show off our high quality beef, so if you have a great recipe, please do share!!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Both of my parent were good cooks. My dad could fry up fish just caught over an open-pit fire in cast iron pan that would melt in your mouth! My mom was definitely more of a "conventional" cook, homey and de-lish! I learned a lot fom both. Oh, and my mother-in-law is not bad either!!
My cooking tragedies
I can't make crepes, I just can't do it, they never taste good:o(

Aw-some Coleslaw
Well I'll be darned! This does taste VERY close to ol' KFC's slaw, and I just love the stuff so I was pleasantly surprised and pleased when I did my taste testing (which turned into just plain old eating haha)! I tripled the recipe for a church pot-luck and I made sure to include this wonderful recipe. Thanks for this winner!

Pizza Casserole
Excellent! It has 2 things that I just adore in a recipe, it's easy and tastes really good! You just have to use egg noodles, it just changes the taste of other pizza pastas I have had, it makes the dish in my opinion! I have shared this with girlfriends, my sister, and a few teacher friends. Busy moms and dads will appreciate this one! Thanks for the recipe, the options are endless!

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style
The BEST chicken I have ever made, and not trying to toot my horn, but even I can humbly admit that it is darn good!!! Took another reviewer's advice and made a large quantity of the rub up for quicker prep, definitely do this next time you have all those spices out, great time saver! This recipe will be used in our home for years, thanks so much!!
