About this Cook
Married for about 9 years, 3 kids, all picky eaters. Always loved to bake and I also enjoy cooking for my family now as well. I also enjoy swimming, puzzles (i.e. Sudoku, Ken-ken, etc), and on line socializing.
My favorite things to cook
I love pastas, wish I had the patience and time for breads (no machine), I love most anything sweet as well as fresh fruits. I am always willing to try new dishes that include things I like.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Just learning new things and doing things with my kids now to pass on new traditions.

Mouse's Macaroni and Cheese
Used a 12oz box of elbows, added some diced ham, about 12 oz cheddar, 4 oz American and added a few dashes of garlic powder, onion powder and a punch of cayenne for my own taste. Was GREAT, so I think the ratio of macaroni to cheese is definitely high like other reviewers said, but GREAT recipe!

Meat-Lover's Slow Cooker Spaghetti Sauce
100% what we were looking for - a meatier spaghetti sauce. We did the store bought for awhile, but never liked them and decided to do our own knowing we wanted more meat. Used ground turkey in place of the beef and left everything else the same. GREAT sauce. Double it and put it in our slow cooker and keeps our family of five with sauce for a couple of months at a time. GREAT flavor/taste!

Asparagus, Chicken and Penne Pasta
Fantastic! Made just as is (for the most part) and it turned out great. Cooked the chicken with same seasonings as the asparagus. Hubby said he preferred the asparagus a little softer (boiled, vs. sauteed) but I thought it was great as is!
