About this Cook
I enjoy cooking and plan a menu before I go to the grocery store. I love this site for that! I try to only go to the store about twice a month to keep out food costs down. We raise our own cows and so I cook more meals with beef than other meats because: Beef, it's what's for dinner!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook Mexican food, mostly because I like my food on the spicy side. I really enjoy making things from scratch.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I bake bread twice a month and freeze extra loaves so we always have fresh, homemade bread. It just tastes so much better! My husband usually cooks breakfast on Saturday and Sunday.
My cooking triumphs
I have gotten really into desserts and have mastered the cream pie. My husband probably wishes I would make them once a week, but I try to limit it to once a month.

Chicken In Basil Cream
This recipe was amazing! I marinated the chicken in Italian dressing for about an hour beforehand and then breaded and fried per the directions. I've found chicken really needs to be marinated in something to stay moist. The only changes that I made other than that we're to add mushrooms to three pan before the chicken broth and some cherry tomatoes halved with the cream and basil. The tomatoes really added to the dish I think. I don't usually change recipes before I try them as written, but I needed to use my tomatoes up because they are growing like crazy and I am having a hard time staying ahead of them! My husband said this chicken is so moist and delicious, and he is not a chicken fan.

Quick Cheeseburger Pie
I followed other reviewers suggestions and added a can of diced tomatoes. I would have used swiss cheese, but my husband doesn't like it, so I use cheddar instead. This was soooooooooooooo good, I ate 2 servings and was completely stuffed.

Baked Ziti I
I love this recipe and make it at least once a month. I use Kay's Spaghetti and Lasagna Sauce from this site. I followed another reviewers suggestion of mixing the sauce with the bottom layer of noodles. Thanks Colleen for a filling and satisfying recipe!
