The Cooking Mom is nearly 300 pages of my favorite recipes, stories and secrets to help bring your family back to the table. Recipes are designed with real moms and busy people in mind. For years people all over Northeast Wisconsin have been asking me, “When’s the cookbook coming out?” I finally did it!
As I mentioned, every recipe has a story to go with it. Like my Dog Gone Good Meatloaf. It was so dog gone good, that I turned my back for a second and the next thing I knew my dog had eaten the WHOLE thing, or my Dad’s Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream. I found his 40 year-old ice cream maker while moving and inside the box was his handwritten recipe. I plugged the old machine in and it still worked! We made the ice cream that night and have been making it ever since.
There are several make-ahead brunch casserole recipes in the book. Love those! One, with sausage, cheese, and eggs happens to be my all-time favorite! It’s perfect for the holidays when you don’t want to be slaving away in the kitchen. I made it Christmas morning for my husband Bob’s family. Let’s just say it was a hit! So much so, that I caught my sister in-law eating it cold right from the fridge the next day! Gotta love that!
These are just a few of the more than 200 stories and recipes. Thank you so much for letting me help you cook up memories! Want your cookbook signed? I’d love to meet you! Check out my calendar of events to find out when I will be at a store near you.
