I'm getting behind, so this one will be another 2-in-one! We've made 2 batches of cookies over about the past week. The first one (A.R.s Caramel Nougat Bar Peanut Butter Cookies) we made to take as a thank you gift to our trash guys; they have helped us out tremendously hauling off all our wet… MORE

Last night I finally had the chance to fix a meal that's been on my "to make list" for quite awhile now! Yummy spaghetti and meatballs with a fantastic cheesy garlic bread. It was a great dinner and nice to find a new recipe for a classic dish that I'm sure will be used again in our home! I… MORE

I have always loved homemade bread, who doesn't?? But I've also always been a little intimidated by it - it seems very labor intensive and I have always worried about screwing it up and having all that time and effort wasted. But I've recently started putting my toe in the water and testing… MORE

I thought I would be able to keep up with a blog post for each of the new recipes I try out from A.R. but I am falling behind! Oh well, maybe I can play catch up today. Last Thursday evening I pretty much spent all night prepping and baking two pies for a "Pie in the Face" finale we were… MORE

Yesterday for lunch we made a homemade BBQ Chicken Pizza, I've been in the mood for one lately. I have my own recipe for the BBQ Chicken part that we usually use, and have been using a dough recipe from my mother in law for the past 10 years, but yesterday I wanted to try something… MORE

About Me
I love preparing meals for my family, I grew up eating home cooked dinners as a child, and felt that time around the table was very special. It gives me a LOT of pleasure to prepare something my family enjoys!
My favorite things to cook
I cook with a lot of chicken, we prefer boneless, skinless breasts. I don't think I have a preference for a certain style of food, or ethnicity. I cook mainly simple, meat and rice/pasta/potatoes kinds of meals. I enjoy trying different flavors and fixing new recipes. We enjoy italian, southern, mexican, etc.
My favorite family cooking traditions
It's sort of a tradition in our house to have biscuits and gravy every weekend, usually Saturday morning. My husband grew up in the South, and it's comfort food! I love preparing a Traditional Thanksgiving Dinner: Roast turkey, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, stuffing, rolls, and cranberry jelly... MMMMM!!!!
My cooking triumphs
I think I was pretty thrilled with myself the first time I successfully made a home-made pizza crust. I am also very good with homemade breads, and very proud of my banana and lemon poppy seed breads!
My cooking tragedies
I have two classic cooking tragedies from when I had just started cooking (age 16) - the first time was when I tried to thicken gravy by adding flour directly into the HOT liquid - LOTS of clumps... it was SOO gross! The 2nd time was when I tried to make my first white sauce, and I just could NOT get the flour to milk ratio right, it was pasty and disgusting!!! I've learned a lot since then, but those are classic OOPS memories!
