Phew - what a day!  We were hit with this massive snow storm - as I'm sure many of you were - today and I am so grateful that all my family finally made it home safe and sound.  The question is:  What do you call it when it is snowing, sleeting, AND thundering (I'm talking blizzard snow,… MORE

Spent an awesome day with my 13 year old son and my 6 year old grandson.  It is a cool, rainy day here in central-Missouri so we went to the book store.  My grandson is in Kindergarten so just learning to read -- so fun.  I got both boys a book and then we picked out books for the little… MORE

I have a bit of a crush on my NuWave oven.  I use it often.  I use it for everything.  I'm glad it hasn't broken up with me yet!  Today was a marathon between me and NWO . ..  we roasted 2 whole chickens and grilled a large bag of chicken breasts.  Half of the first whole chicken was used to… MORE

About Me
I am 49, married, have 3 children and 1 grandchild! My kids are 28, 27 and 13. My grandson is 6. I am a social worker for the state of Missouri and work with foster children.
My favorite things to cook
I love discovering 'quick and easy' recipes that I can pass along to those I work with. I like exerimenting with my slow cooker and getting creative with new side dishes. I use my NuWave oven ALL the time love it! Today I roasted 2 whole chickens and grilled a whole bag of frozen chicken breasts - lots of possibilities for this weeks meals!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grown childen and I love to cook together - chicken fettuccini alfredo is a favorite of my oldest sons, with our own version of alfredo sauce. My 13 year old son is really learning the fun of experimenting when cooking and has made his dad and I several delicious meals. My daughter is a vegeterian, so creating new dishes and flavors is our favorite time. And of course entering recipes into the contests at the state fair.
My cooking triumphs
My husband and I have entered recipes for 4 years at the state fair. We find we do best with the recipes that we completely make from scratch - and literally throw together hoping it turns out!! ha We have won 5 prizes.
My cooking tragedies
Gravy - a can not make good gravy no matter what I try! It really is tragic.
