About this Cook
I cook for my family of three every night during the week. I have been working hard to bring healthier foods to the table that are low in cholesterol and calories. I plan a menu weekly using allrecipes for help and stick to it, even though some nights it would be easier to go to the drive-thru.
My favorite things to cook
Teachers work long hours, believe it or not. My work day at school is often 7:00-5:00, then more hours later in the evening to grade and plan. I try to have dinner on the table by 6:00 for my starving loved ones. I love using my slow cooker. Dinner is done with little preparation when I walk through the door. There is nothing as good as a pot roast or pot of soup steaming hot and ready to eat.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baking with my mom. She and I were always making cakes and cookies for our family of six. We were so active that mom did not worry about calories. She knew we would burn them off!
My cooking triumphs
I took a cake decorating class with my mom when my son was a wee babe. I was very worried to try flours and sugar figures, but I triumphed. The family loved the weekly creations as I practiced.

Penne and Vodka Sauce
This was just perfect. I will say that if you think it is a little sour from the vodka add just a pinch of sugar. Loved it!

Chocolate Pretzels
So Easy! My 9 year old took these to his class Christmast pary at school. None came back home. Use pastel colors for a spring party too. They keep well in the refrigerator if you need to store them, but the chocolate does begin to turn white.
