This is one of our "family favorites" that gets made on a fairly regular basis. It's a recipe from Kenneth's mom that was given to me in my favorite wedding gift - a homemade recipe book of their family favorites. I think it got me through my first year of married life and learning… MORE

Don't you just love the name of that??! :) This was super easy and very tasty. I threw it in the crockpot this morning, went to all day doctor appointments, and when I got home it took another 15 minutes to boil some egg noodles and warm up some corn (my son's pick)! Dinner was all set! I… MORE

Last night was Easy Honey Mustard Mozzarella Chicken, rotini pasta and steamed veggies. Overall good reivews from the boys! I thought it was pretty good, I used Dijon mustard instead of yellow mustard and not quite as much honey as called for and thought it was a little tangy, so if I make this… MORE

Tonight hubby wanted "real" meat after fish for dinner last night - so beef was on the menu! I love the Perfect Pressure Cooker Pot Roast recipe but use it in the crockpot, but had to make adjustments based on what I had available tonight.   Ingredients 1.5 lb chuck tender roast 1 pkt… MORE

If you haven't heard of The Dinner A'Fare - I think they are FANTASTIC for the full time working mom, especially one who's pregnant and comes home with VERY little energy most evenings! I discovered them about a year ago and went a couple times, and then hadn't been in awhile, but last month my… 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!
