I am a wife of 20 years and mother to 2 daughters and 1 son. My fulltime job is teaching special-needs (autism) preschoolers. I enjoy cooking, but am not a hugely confident cook. In my downtime I like to read cookbooks, cooking magazines, and recipes...I really enjoy eating good food!

Cherry Cheesecake Dip

Quick and easy dessert that has become a family favorite.

Reva's Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas

My sister-in-law submitted this enchilada recipe to our family cookbook several years ago and then made them for us when she and my brother came for a visit - DELICIOUS!

Chocolate Haystacks

This is an easy no-bake cookie that my mom made every Christmas when I was growing up. Now I am carrying on the tradition.

Grandma Giovanardi's Delicious Icing

My sister shared this recipe with me for a creamy icing that's not very sweet passed down from my grandmother.

Sunshine Cake

I got this recipe from a friend at church who uses all light and sugar-free ingredients in it. It is yummy!

Simple Overnight Breakfast Casserole

I have made this recipe so many times over the years that I can make it from memory. It has often been requested for breakfasts/brunches I have attended.

Swiss Pork Chops

This is my absolute favorite way to prepare pork chops!

Chicken-Stuffing Bake

This is a great, simple casserole that I go to whenever I want to make something I know my entire family will enjoy!
