The Way to Their Hearts        I have discovered the way to their hearts.  Well okay, when I say “discovered”, I guess I mean finally discovered.  And just for myself, not for everybody.  It was kind of like “discovering” a breathtaking view in another… MORE

From The Blog:  The Cookin' Fool
About this Cook
I am a SAHM. My love of cooking has blossomed in the last 4 years or so. Now I have the bug, and can't seem to get enough of it. I am a Cookin' Fool..:-)
My favorite things to cook
I'm finding I love to cook dinner items the most; slow cooking, sauteing, stir frying, occasional casseroles, soups and stews, etc. Also, Diabetes runs in my family, so I'm always on the look out for new diabetic friendly recipes, or adapting existing ones with low carb/sugar ingredients. Xylitol has become my blood-sugar friendly sweetener of choice, because it isn't a fake sugar. But I will also use raw agave syrup and Splenda blends.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My sister puts on a big Christmas Eve party every year and I have adopted the tradition for my own home earlier in the month of December. Traditional dishes include; spiral ham, stuffed shells, Auntie El's cocktail meatballs, Heather's chocolate rum cake, Bananas Foster Bread, Irish Cream bread, Oreo trifle...and the list goes on.
My cooking triumphs
My Auntie Hola's Salsa Bread (my great niece, Kaylen, calls me by this name) I have come up with some delicious dishes on my own, but never thought I'd have the cooking skills to make my own bread from scratch. Let alone my own recipe! It's the kind of flavor that makes your eyes roll back in your head with delight when you bite into a freshly baked, buttered slice. Mmmmmmmmmmm..:-)
My cooking tragedies
There are too many to list. But that's how we learn, right?

The Best Steak Marinade
I made this exactly as written and it was sensational. I marinated 2 T-Bones and 2 sirloins for about 4 hours then grilled on a hot grill for about 8 minutes total. OUTSTANDING!!

Breakfast Sausage
This is an excellent recipe and so easy to make! Only made a couple minor changes out of neccessity; had no ground cloves so I crushed fresh ones. YUM! I'll do that again next time and add about 1/2 the salt. WOW! I'll never buy another premade breakfast sausage again!

Easy, rich and creamy! I followed the directions with no changes and this sauce was fantastic. I will certainly make it again!
