  1. Wonderful soup - worked out well , loved the addition of mushrooms. i cooked mine on low for about 10 hours and it is terrific.
  2. Outstanding! I let mine cook about 10 hours, and added; 1 TBL Crushed Red Pepper, 1 Chopped Zucchini, 4 Green Onions, and 12 oz of Frozen Spinach. I did not put the Spinach in until about hour 8.


I love the upper midwest, where my husband and I have made our home. We raise our two beautiful children in a small town west of the Twin Cities. I am an engineer who has progressed to Stay At Home Mom and now just recently, Homeschooler. Never in a million years would I have expected THIS! Now, my focus has progressed from career-driven to family-driven. I love to cook, and I use my engineering degree in my cooking. I love to learn how to do things, and why things work. Some of the things I've learned is: How to make yogurt, cheese, soap, and many other things that my friends taunt me about. I don't mind. I would go nuts otherwise. My husband only gets paid once a month. So, I have become a meal planner & Once A Month Cooking lover. I shop on the first of the month, and only buy needed dairy and fresh ingredients through the rest of the month. So, I look for meals that work with our plans. And, one last note: I do have a small job to get me out of the house. I am a dance instructor, and LOVE to dance (which is where my silly photo came from). So, if you were to peek in my windows (which I don't recommend by the way - he he he) you'd see me cooking and dancing. They seem to go together SO WELL!! <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
