I'm a mom of two beautiful kids, whom I'm starting to homeschool this year.   I love hiking, fishing, hunting and have recently found that i LOVE baking - cooking I do because I enjoy eating and it seems I make better food than restaurants around town. 

Chili.  I love making it, the way it simmers all day and just gets better.  I threw together a sweet chili and my kids love it - and so does everyone else :)  I love baking - the rising of bread is still magic to me.

Nana's Moist Dark Chocolate Cake

Easy to make, rich, moist and fabulous! I wish I had made the vanilla frosting though (my son wanted chocolate, and for me that was too much chocolate, but for him it was just enough!) — Baroody 8/7/2012
Chocolate Frosting

Chocolate Frosting

When I followed the directions, I ended up with too dry a mixture. I had to add a few tablespoons of milk to thin it out enough to spread. It tastes yummy, though :) — vanced1 8/3/2012

I used these biscuits as a topping for my chicken pot pie - It worked very well. 2/24/2012
Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

I think I should have cut them all in half, or possibly quarters.... Cooked for 40 minutes and the outer leaves were browning, but some were still not tender when I took them out.... I did add mushrooms, and those were yummy :) — sgrishka 2/22/2012

Basic Pancake Mix Recipe

Basic Pancake Mix Recipe

I'm used to mixing wet ingredients first and then combining with the dry. I didn't like mixing in the milk first and then the eggs - I had to over mix the batter to get the eggs mixed in. They tasted okay enough - but I agree, this is just a basic recipe. I think I will keep looking for my go-to pancake recipe — jimshim 1/18/2012
Warm Apple Pie

Warm Apple Pie

I don't like apple pie - but every one in my family does. They asked for a pie for Thanksgiving, and this one did not disappoint! This recipe makes me LOVE apple pie!!! Best crust I've made from scratch! 11/25/2011

We had a little problem with too much milk - but my 'helper' was 6 years old, so that could have had something to do with it... :) — mstanco 8/30/2011
Chicken - Stroganoff

Chicken - Stroganoff

It's on the stove now - I didn't have any paprika, so I substituted with some sage and thyme - probably will be sweeter, but we'll see. I started cooking the chicken before I realized what I thought was paprika in Grandma's kitchen was really Cayenne pepper.... and i wasn't going to substitute that! — deedee237 8/12/2011
Hamburger Casserole

Hamburger Casserole

I really wish there was an estimated cook time with this recipe - It's been in the oven for 45 min and I've checked it twice, but the potatoes still aren't cooked through yet... — dawnrw 8/10/2011
