I am a wife of 9 years and stay at home mom to a sweet little boy and girl. Cooking is how I relax and I do it often. There's nothing more that I love than to see my family enjoying a meal I've prepared.

Oven fried cauliflower with horseradish dipping sauce

I was looking for a healthy alternative to serve as an appetizer on pizza night. This took the place of greasy cheese sticks or fried wings, typical dishes to pair with pizza. The added bonus is that this is low in fat and delicious! My family gobbled them up, and I'm sure yours will too!

Fresh cherry muffins

Rating: 4.5 stars 79
This recipe came about from an abundance of fresh cherries and some hungry summer time kids! Enjoy!

White chocolate chip ginger cookies

I came up with this recipe when I wanted a ginger cookie and didn't have any molasses. This has a delicate flavor, not as strong as your typical ginger cookie or gingerbread, but the vanilla chips give it a great creamy richness that complements the spice. It makes an excellent Christmas cookie, and 1 cup of walnuts can be added for another layer of flavor.

Creamy Buffalo Dipping Sauce

Rating: 4.5 stars 11
I came up with this recipe to serve with chicken fingers. I was tired of honey mustard, but didnt want all of the heat of straight buffalo sauce. Heres my creamy and slightly sweet version that is a perfect dipper for anything from chicken fingers to fried shrimp!

Chicken enchiladas verde

I came up with these enchiladas when I was searching for a recipe that didn't contain condensed soup. These are hearty, delicious and full of flavor!

Gussie's "Wash Day" Dinner

This recipe was my great-grandmothers creation for her laundry days when she didnt have time to prepare a complicated meal. This depression-era recipe isn't fancy, but it's inexpensive, tasty, and satisfying.

Sticky Orange Apricot Chicken

We love teriaki chicken, but my husband doesnt like the sweetness. I came up with this recipe that pleases everyone in the family, but still satisfies our desire for an asian-inspired sticky, fall of the bone chicken dish! The sauce is blended in a blender and the chicken stays in the same pan from start to finih so cleanup is a snap!

Princess Cookies

Rating: 4.5 stars 301
This recipe gets it's name from a story that I read to my son about a princess whose only wish is to find a prince that can make a cookie that is as tiny and delicate as she is. This is a delicious little lemon cookie that will not disappoint! They can either be drizzled with a lemon glaze made of confectioners sugar and fresh lemon juice or rolled in sugar before baking for a more subtle lemon flavor.

Arroz con Camaron or Shrimp with yellow rice

My family loves Arroz con Pollo or Chicken with yellow rice. Here is a twist on our favorite latin comfort food!

Mom's Slow Cooker Pot Roast

It doesnt get easier than this! This pot roast is tender and flavorful with a perfect gravy for serving with potatoes. The soup portion can be doubled for more gravy!
