Busy Mom of Four!
About this Cook
I am a stay at home mom with four young children.We don't get out much so having company over for dinner is a great source of entertainment for us.I really enjoy perusing recipes to come up with a full menu.I really enjoy chatting with wine & cooking together.
My favorite things to cook
I try to eat low carb & I am always looking for new recipe ideas where I can substitute different vegetables for starches , pasta, breading etc.

Absolute Best Pancake Syrup
I tried this yesterday for Shrove Tuesday. I figured if we are having pancakes for dinner let's do it right! The kids all LOVED this, me too!! If anyone has ever had those little cinnamon sticky pullaparts things at McDonalds, this tastes exactly the same. Now I want to make cinnamon roils and pour this over top.I subbed honey for the corn syrup and made sour milk with vinegar & milk( 1 TB vinegar plus milk to equal one cup total) instead of using buttermilk and it was awesome!!!!

Grandma Chase's Nanaimo Bars
I just made these for my family. Like what another reviewer said, I found it a little difficult to spread the bottom mixture into a 9"x13" pan, it's doable but not easy. The middle layer: I have made Nanaimo bars before using custard powder so I was reluctant to try these with pudding mix. I tasted it and added more because it just tasted like icing to me. If I were to make these again I would deffinately increase the chocolate topping by at least half as this too was nearly impossible to spread, it ended up swirling into the middle layer because it was so sparce to spread.All that being said, my husband & 4 kids all love these...and that's what really matters!!

Lentil Soup
Just made this for dinner tonight and all 4 kids ages 8-12 loved it. Changes made were as follows: I used strained tomatoes, put in 14 oz, added the other 10oz to half broth & half water to make 8 cups,doubled the spices and carrots& added 1tsp of curry powder& balsamic . Didn't have any spinach so I left it out and it was still a hearty soup.Easy to make and easy to change it up to suit your taste.
