RECIPE SUBMITTED BY
After graduating from college in spring of 2007, I am now working as a Traffic Engineer. Now that I have free time instead of homework, I've been trying all sorts of new recipes that are more involved. I am always trying to get healthy food into my husband and 7-year old step-son. I am slowly wearing on them, both of them will finally eat vegetables with every dinner. Both of them like helping in the kitchen, especially on mini pizza nights! We have a 4-year old male lab/golden retriever mix and when the two "boys" get going, look out! I participated in my in-law's family Christmas party this year by bringing almond roca. It was a huge hit and everyone wants it again next get-together! I will definately bring it again, but I don't want to give the recipe out to them because it is so easy and I like them thinking I worked by butt off!! A cooking tragedy I once had in high school: I was making some pesto for my mom and I to have with lunch. At the time, I didn't know the difference between a clove and a bulb of garlic and I ended up putting about half a bulb of garlic in the recipe then stopped because I though "two whole bulbs would be a lot"... the recipe read 2 cloves ... Needless to say, we had bad breath for days and I never forgot what a clove was!! I haven't tried all of my posted recipes, but if I posted them I thought they sounded good and figured I should give someone else the chance to try them before I get to them. <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/200_PACpic.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket">
