Sometimes its the easiest recipes that are the most tasty! Potatoes, ham, and a CrockPot means less time cooking and more time for...homework. A couple of weeks ago I bought the Betty Crocker CrockPot recipe book and began perusing the recipes. I work full-time, go to school full-time, and… MORE

About this Cook
I'm a look cook. If the ingredient looks about the right quantity, I cook it. Unless I am baking, the recipe is only a suggestion.
My favorite things to cook
Meat and vegetables (but don't ask me to eat the vegetables). After watching Julie and Julia I fell in love with cooking with wine. My kids ask me to fix Julia's hamburgers with a tarragon wine sauce -- that's my absolute favorite, too!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Saturday and Sunday I cook all day. The rest of the week gets leftovers or quick meals but the fancy things are on the weekend when I'm not working and have more time to experiment. I will make food for the troops even when there are only three of us at home for the night.
My cooking triumphs
My best feat is making yummy food for the family get together and have people ask for the recipe.
My cooking tragedies
Curry and tofu. I don't even want to remember the two nights in the past 11 years of marriage that my husband was disgusted with the food I made. Statistically, he said I have a good average.

My family gave this three thumbs up! Comments include, "This is the best sauce ever!" Only thing I did slightly different was add more Parmesan and Romano cheese for a richer flavor. Next time - I'm going to double the recipe!

Pasta with Scallops, Zucchini, and Tomatoes
This was a hit with my seafood eaters! I was surprised at the colorful presentation, fragrant aroma, but slightly disappointed with the flavor. Feedback from the family included the scallops were too bland unless you ate it with everything else. I added smoked paprika (one of my favorite spices).

Warm and Creamy Bacon Dip
This is best baked in a sourdough bread bowl with a couple of dashes of Worcestershire sauce. DIVINE!
