About this Cook
SAHM with 3 children and a wonderful husband. Kids are 9,8 7 3 years old. I am a Brownie Leader and I love to be social with my friends and family.
My favorite things to cook
I love to try new things. We very rarely eat a meal more than once. More common meals I take a different twist as often as possible.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving is the only holiday that I get to be in charge of, so I plan it out about 4 months ahead of time.

Irish Chicken and Dumplings
Very very good.... my first time ever making dumplings. My husband said they were just as good as grandma's.

Apple Dip
My kids and plus 3 friends are enjoying this right now with apple slices, and all I hear is "This is soooooo good!" and "Oooh, like caramel, but better!" and "Mom, can we have this for dinner?" I think it's a hit! My only tip is to microwave the cream cheese a little to soften it up. I think it tastes better a little warm anyway.

Garlic Mashed Potatoes Secret Recipe
Absolutely delicious! Everyone raved at how good these were! I would, however, cut down the romano or use half romano, half parmesean. I also sauted the garlic with some butter and poured it in at the end, and added some milk.
