About this Cook
Im married, with an 11 yr old son. Some days I think my husband married me for my chili.. He LOVES it.. And I love to cook for other people.
My favorite things to cook
My chili is one of my favorites to cook, cuz everyone loves it. My best friend insists on my homemade chicken noodle soup whenever she's sick. I love to bake peach cobbler, a recipe I got from here. Im now starting more "healthy" eating, so it should be interesting to see what I can come up with and what recipes from here will become my favorites!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom and I would bake Christmas cookies every year. We also would can pickled peppers. Come to think of it, I need to get her recipe and submit it!
My cooking triumphs
Any meal people like and isnt burned, its a triumph.
My cooking tragedies
When I was about 15, I baked my mom a chocolate cake from scratch, even the frosting.. I was SO proud. I was picking it up to move it from the kitchen to the dinning room table, when I lost my grip on the platter, and it toppled from my hands. The living room rug was covered in cake. My older brothers laughed at me and I cried for an hour. My mom helped me clean it up and told me she was proud I made it for her and she was sure it was delicious. Also, I was making speghetti sauce one day, grabbed the wrong bottle of spices from the cupboard and added CINNAMON to the sauce.. IT WAS AWFUL! TERRIBLE! No on would eat it!

Tortellini Chowder
My husband really liked this.. scored it 8 out of 10. I thought it was excellent. My son, who is very picky, did not like it, but that was OK by us, it meant we had more! The only minor changes I made were, 1) only used 1/2 a jalapeno, since I have a wimpy palette, (Hubby would have loved the extra heat) 2) used a can of green chilies since that's all I had on hand and 3) used milk with the flour, not oil. Thanks for a great recipe!
