About this Cook
I am a soon to be stay-at-home momma. I've been working since I was 14 years old so being home a lot is not something I'm used to so I have been trying to find things to abide my time and cooking has become one of those things.
My favorite things to cook
New recipes! Anything new is my style. If I'm whipping up something old, I try to put a new twist on it, maybe some new spices. If it was a big hit with everyone I try to keep it about the same, and I'm still learning as I go...
My favorite family cooking traditions
As a kid our family ate fast-food and poor-man food, like mac & cheese with extras like tuna or hamburger. For my growing family I hope to find new, exciting recipes that make them love to eat at home and cook.
My cooking triumphs
My newest motto is "second times a charm". This is because anytime I fail at a recipe, I simply store it away for another day and after the second time around I seem to get it pretty well! Cooking is still pretty new to me.
My cooking tragedies
First-time cinnamon rolls... I had mis-read the recipe and thought the brown sugar went into the dough. The dough rose, but it was rather hard. Still good warmed up with some butter on the top (I had also failed at the frosting stuff too, not sure what went wrong there)

Tuna Noodle Casserole IV
I used this recipe as a guideline and used what I had on hand. It was pretty good, though a little bland, but I avoid overusing herbs and spices for my 1.5 year old. We loved it! He slurped it all down, and we split a wheat tortilla on the side. I happened to make enough to freeze part of it for a later time (Being currently pregnant and due in the next couple weeks, I try to make extras to freeze and have ready for after baby comes) I added about a cup or so of frozen veggies in the noodles in the last 5 minutes of boiling, which softened them up very nicely, then mixed that together with the cheese, condensed cream of mushroom soup, tuna, and milk. Threw it in a glass pan, sprinkled a little more cheese on top, covered it with foil and cooked for a little under 20 minutes at 350 degrees. Very delicious! Thank you for the great base recipe :) Next time I will most likely add some bread crumbs for topping, but sadly we were out.

Smushed Apples and Sweet Potatoes
Great recipe! I don't think I cooked the apples long enough because they didn't mash very well. Otherwise its very tasty.
