Tonight, we are starting Summer League Bowling apparently. I did not realize that we were signed up. Therefore, dinner had to be simple and quick and early. I spent most of the day working on my spring cleaning/purging. Trash man will deserve a gift after this.      Today, my new recipe… MORE

About this Cook
I love, love, love to cook. I hate to do dishes. So I am in love with my crockpot. Only one thing to clean. I can read a recipe and decide if it is good or not. My biggest pet peeve is that nobody teaches their kids to cook anymore. My nephews come over just to cook with me.
My favorite things to cook
I love figuring out how to cook on a little budget. My speciality is making dinner for under $10. But lately as prices of everything is going up, I have been making dinner under $15. I cannot wait to get a huge garden in this year. I will have to break down and learn to can. I have to can to afford to feed this crew and all their teenage friends that just show up at dinner time.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking as a family. My kids have been cooking for as long as they can remember. I think my boy has been using a real knife since age 5. My girls make dinner on their own now. My 11yo made me breakfast in bed by herself. Quite impressive.
My cooking triumphs
Getting my husband to eat some vegetarian meals. Sticking to a food budget of $400 per month and still having food left in the freezer and pantry at the end of the month.
My cooking tragedies
Realizing that my 16 year old son has very high cholesterol. It could be his meds creating it. I have to find more things to feed everyone that is on his diet plan.

Best Bread Machine Bread
Print this out and tape it to the outside of your bread machine. Soft and fragrant. The link to this was given to me from a friend. It is hers and my go to recipe for bread, rolls and cinnamon rolls. I won first place at the fair with cinnamon rolls with this bread. I got second place for my bread but I added almonds and honey to it. The judges didn't like that.

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style
Loved it. I have made this so many times now. I doubled it and cut the pepper for our Thanksgiving turkey. It was my first time doing all the cooking since mom passed. I have cooked a turkey but this was for the whole family. Everybody loved my rub. I have it printed and on the fridge as a "go to" for any chicken.

Pizza Dip
Used homemade pizza sauce. This was very good for using a little of this and that for a late snack. Just right size for using toaster oven and not the big oven. Great with tortilla chips. Plan to use toasted baguette bread next time. Hubby suggested Italian sausage next time since is a big fan of it.
