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 is a whole chapter in the book titled “Throw it in the Slow Cooker.” Wonderful recipes perfect for busy people. They can just throw it all in there in the morning and come home to a great dinner at night. There’s also an entire chapter in the booked called “Kicked Up Casseroles” filled with amazing casserole recipes and secrets to making a good casserole. There’s a casserole recipe in the book given to me by a Packers’ wife. The story goes that she made it all the time for players who’s wives had new babies. It was so good that one player was caught in the kitchen eating it cold right from the fridge.
These are just a few of the more than 250 stories and recipes. Thank you for your support over the last decade in my pursuit to become The Cooking Mom. Check out our calendar of events to find out when I will be at a store near you.
