About this Cook
I am married and have 3 children, 2 boys and 1 girl. I love to bake and cook and am always on the lookout for easy weeknight suppers. My husband enjoys sharing lunches at work as his friends love the food.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking everything. Our favorites are Mexican, barbecue, and seafood. I consider baking one of my hobbies and enjoy doing it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I think Christmas at my mom's is the best. She bakes for weeks before and has a table full of Christmas candies and treats.
My cooking triumphs
After my dad's mother passed I wanted to surprise him with a Whiskey cake like his mom made every Christmas. I asked my mother for the recipe and she said no it's too hard to make. She finally gave it to me and I made it successfully and surprised my dad with it on Christmas. I shared it with my mom and to her surprise it was delicious. I make it every year now.
My cooking tragedies
I tried to make cinnamon rolls for the first time. Instead of using the recipe in the bread maker instruction book I used one from this site. All was going well until it started to rise. It began oozing out of the bread machine and was an awful sticky mess to clean up.

My Favorite Sloppy Joes
Sorry didn't care for these at all. I cut back on the Worcestershire, liquid smoke and mustard but still that's I could taste. So Sorry.

Chef John's Sausage & Shrimp Jambalaya
I am by all means no jambalaya expert but thought this was wonderful. I doubled the recipe and added 1 tbsp or so of homemade reduced salt Cajun season. Followed everything else exact. Used brown rice and cooked 55 mins because it felt a little "crunchy" but decided maybe that's the way brown rice is suppose to be. I actually loved the texture the rice gave it. I was worried after reading other recipes that had so much more spices but chose this one because of the video and reviews. It was perfectly seasoned. Highly recommend you try it.

Pressure Cooker Teriyaki Chicken
I made this per recommendation from my dad who made the night before and said it was excellent. I would definitely agree. Followed recipe to a T and it came out so tender it fell apart. I haven't really cooked a lot in my pressure cooker but found this to be so easy. Hubby said it was little too sweet so maybe I will cut back on the sugar. But I thought it was perfect. Update** A little trick I learned, have a second burner waiting heated to desired cooking temp and move the cooker to that burner after pressure is reached. Cook according to the timing directions. This helps to prevent burning. Thanks
