When my 9yr old daughter Emily saw my last blog dedicated to her big brothers meal, the jealousy kicked in! So of course, tonight I let her cook dinner, and took lots of pictures, directed by Emily of course! In the fridge and pantry I had some sweet potatoes, spinach and pork chops that… MORE

Well the hospital has picked back up so I worked the last few nights, woke up at 2pm and was still a little groggy.  My 14 yr old son, Bodie agreed to cook dinner for us tonight.  I was drinking my "morning" coffee and watching Rachel Ray make awesome shrimp scampi with clam… MORE
The awesome result (sans the sauce, which was not drizzled on the plate yet.

This recipe was a week in the planning with lots of "bolognese" research, and planning my ingredients and coming up with a recipe!  I've made lasagna before, but I always follow the recipe on the back of the noodle box and use jarred sauce.  But we were having family over for dinner… MORE

Slow night tonight at the hospital, so I'm on call!  The bad news is I don't get paid, the good news is I get to try two stir fry recipes!  Beef and Broccoli and Chicken Ginger Stir Fry.  I don't like beef, so the first one is for the hubby and son, the chicken is for me and my… MORE

After much trepidation, I have decided to upgrade to a paid Allrecipes membership.  Hey, I'm worth it right?  Actually, I love to cook, read recipes, photograph food, oh and eat food too!  As I write this it is rain/snowing outside in late April.  Good ol' Nevada! … MORE

About Me
I'm married with 3 children. I live on 7 acres with chickens, goats, and dogs. Being a city girl and living and traveling all over the world, this lifestyle is a new adventure for me. I'm an RN and I work at the local hospital in town. I love my job, and love my community! UPDATE: We have just recently relocated to the south! My husband was relocated to Marietta, GA. We are now in the suburbs, and I am embracing our new lifestyle with open arms!
My favorite things to cook
I recently had to go Gluten Free and low sugar. This is actually a good thing for my cooking progression! I no longer buy any processed or packaged products. I make just about everything from scratch! I love soups and international foods! I absolutely love experimenting with spices and fresh herbs.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I enjoy cooking with family and friends. I always give my kids jobs in the kitchen, it helps me and also helps them learn how to chop, dice, zest, puree, braise, etc... And nothing is more fun than having a friend visit, and cooking a meal together while we drink wine, and catch up on lost time!
My cooking triumphs
Creating my own recipes! I recently started doing this. I will research a food, look at several other recipes, and combine and moderate to my own taste. Check out my recipe box to see some!
My cooking tragedies
There have been so many. The family joke is my burnt bread. I burn the rolls/bread for every Christmas and Thanksgiving!!! My friend and I made our first T-giving turkey and left the plastic bag-o-guts in the turkey! And of course, there's the time that I mistakently added 1 cup of salt instead of sugar in a cookie recipe!
