Mini Cupcake Cupcake Toppers One evening, while browsing Pinterest (the most addicting website after All Recipes in my foodie/crafty/inspiration-seeking opinion), I came across a picture of what I think is probably the cutest thing you could possibly do to a cupcake, cake, cookie... or… MORE

About this Cook
I'm in my late twenties living in NW Illinois in a beautiful, quaint small town. I love to play in the dirt; vegetable and flower gardening are my favorite summertime hobbies. I work full-time managing a small company here in our town and my husband and I also own and operate our own car audio business. We are the proud parents of two adorable Patterdale Terriers (Layla & Tucker) who keep us well entertained. I've been blessed with the most amazing, loving man who is my biggest culinary supporter. I could barely boil water when we first met! I've been cooking for about seven years and while I don't have the utter obsession with it that I had for several years, I still like to make dinner every night :)
My favorite things to cook
In the summer I really enjoy cooking an entire meal on the grill. I also prefer dishes that I can take my time with. I love the stirring, chopping, sauteeing, etc.... stir-fries are too hectic for me!
My cooking triumphs
Cooking in itself is a triumph for me! Until several years ago I lived on bagels and Lean Cuisines... then I found AllRecipes and I can hold my own in the kitchen now!

Chicken Taco Filling
So easy, so simple, so good. Great base for so many dishes - I throw this in the slow cooker before work, then come home and make tacos, enchiladas, Mexican casserole, nachos, etc.

Baked Slow Cooker Chicken
Awesome! I added more seasonings (garlic & onion powders, marjoram, thyme, etc) and used a bed of carrots, onions, and celery instead of the foil balls. Making it again soon. Thanks!

Chicken Stuffed Chiles
Yummy! I used poblano peppers - not sure if I was supposed to, but they worked great. Just a few tweaks because I knew it would be a tad bland for our tastes. I added a can of rotel and about a cup of sour cream to the filling, along with garlic powder, onion powder, and cumin. I also used green enchilada sauce. I'll make this again; we really liked it. Thanks :)
