About this Cook
I am a mom of two beautiful girls. I am president of a local MOMS Club chapter. I love to experiment with cooking new recipes and finding new family favorites.
My favorite things to cook
I love to grill and I love to use the slow cooker even more. Simple, easy recipes are my favorite. When I want to make something more involved, I cook Middle Eastern dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I am pretty much self-taught. My mom worked full time when I was growing up so there was little time to cook together. My grandmother was a pretty boring...specializing in meat and potatoes. I cook with my 4 year old daughter. She really enjoys helping and it is great "together" time.
My cooking triumphs
When someone asks me for my recipe, I get really excited. It says that I have made a great meal!
My cooking tragedies
I can't think of one in particular, but anytime you have company and dinner just doesn't turn out the way you had hoped!

Super Easy Slow Cooker Chicken
took others advice...i added onion soup mix to the condensed soup. i had to add my own seasoning b/c i didn't have herb and chicken soup. sprinkled garlic powder, pepper,and a little poultry seasoning over chicken. i omitted the wine. we served with mashed potatoes.

Pumpkin Black Bean Soup
i was a bit concerned about this soup... but i shouldn't have been! It was delicious. I sauted the ham with the onion and garlic. it really brought out the ham flavor. I didn't blend the tomatoes and beans as directed...instead i used a potato masher while it was cooking and mashed it up a bit. i also added cumin and cayenne pepper. It was super easy and very good.
