About this Cook
I'm a grandmother and great-grandmother. I dabble in goat milk soap, lip gloss and a some sewing and crocheting.
My favorite things to cook
We (I say "we" because my husband does a lot of cooking) do Mexican and Italian, stir fry, steak and potatoes, fried chicken and practically anything pasta. And we love to cook up a big breakfast for family on the weekends.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Homemade tacos, fried chicken, Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners, corned beef & cabbage.
My cooking triumphs
Sour dough from scratch for bread and chocolate cake. YUM!

Krista's Queso
I've been making this for more than 20 years now. Folks are disappointed if I show up at a party without it. I use ground beef or turkey seasoned with a great chili powder from Savory. I also add a can of refried beans and extra chilies if I have them.

Famous Queso Dip
Great recipe as is but we like it doubled - 2 lb Velveeta, 2 cans Ro Tel - undrained, 1 can refried beans and 1 lb ground beef, browned and seasoned with s & p and cumin to taste. Even the "health conscious" members of the family can't walk away from the crock pot until it's empty. No, it's not real food but it's really good.
