About this Cook
I got into cooking and baking as a way to relax. I recently got married and this site is a life saver!! Now I don't have to leaf through recipe books. Everything is right here in one spot. I used to watch both my grandmothers and they could come up with just about anything! I don't have a lot of their old recipes, but I have been able to find similar things on this site. My Grandma Helen was a phenomenal baker and my Grandma Jean is still one of the best cooks I know. My husband is eternally grateful for their influence.
My favorite things to cook
Buffalo Wings - Our neighbors can't get enough! I won't be posting that recipe on this site. It's a secret I'll take to the grave!!! They're that good!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Turkey at Thanksgiving!!!
My cooking triumphs
Making spaghetti sauce for the first time. I thought it was something only my mother could do - but, it turned out fantastic!
My cooking tragedies
The first time I attempted a potatoe casserole using all fat free ingredients - it was absolutely disgusting! It had a horrible aftertaste and ended up right in the garbage.

Homemade Sloppy Joes
Boy does this recipe bring back memories! I haven't had sloppy joes since I was a kid. Definitely a "retro" kinda meal that dare I say...tastes better than my Mom's! This was so easy and so good - perfect for Sunday football. I doubled the recipe using 96/4 ground beef, one red pepper and one green pepper, half ketchup and half Bennetts Original Chili Sauce along with a generous splash of white wine vinegar, and brown sugar to taste along with the rest of the ingredients. I highly recommend watching Chef John's video. It's only a few minutes long and was very helpful. You really do need to add the water and let it simmer down for at least 30 minutes - and don't be afraid to add the cayenne it really does make a difference but doesn't make it "hot". All I did was keep it warm in a crock pot during the game. I served these on slider rolls with chips and pickles to rave reveiws. Thanks Chef John for another awesome recipe!

Marinated Chicken Bruschetta
Very easy and tates fabulous! I pound my chicken down thin and poke it with a fork a few times before marinating. I do spice up the salad dressing a bit with fresh basil and romemary along with some minced garlic and a generous splash of white wine vinegar. I let this marinate for at least four hours. I never refrigerate the tomatoes and left off the dressing just using a little olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper. Once the chicken came off the grill I topped it with the tomato mixture, fresh basil and some shredded Parmesan and Romano cheese. Great served wtih "Warm Herb Garlic Bread" from this site.
