About this Cook
I work full time in human resources at a casino. I have a 5 year old daughter. She loves to help in the kitchen! I love to try new recipes.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook things that have the wow factor. I love it when someone tastes my food and tells me how good it is.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother only makes the family stuffing recipe twice a year. Once at Thanksgiving and once at Christmas. Ever since I was little, it has been my job to break up the toast and cornbread into small pieces. I'm now 30 years old and I still do it every year.
My cooking triumphs
One of my favorite cooking memories is when I was about 14 years old. I made a chocolate souffle for my mom's guests. It was perfect and so good!
My cooking tragedies
One Thanksgiving I made a casserole and kept it in the oven to keep warm. I forgot it was in there when I turned the oven back on to preheat for something else. Well, the casserole was burned to a crisp. But luckily I had enough that we really didn't miss it.

World's Best Lasagna
This stuff is awesome....and even better the next day! I've been using another recipe for years and this has now taken it's place. I forgot to add the mozzarella until I had finished with the layers, so I just added some to the top. But I honestly didn't miss it that much. I mixed the parmesean in with the ricotta and just left the salt out of the mixture. The sausage I used already had fennel in it, so I didn't add the seeds. I added a layer of white sauce on top of each ricotta layer, which is something I liked from my old recipe. It's just a can of cream of mushroom with a little milk added to make it smooth. I also found some name brand lasagna noodles that were flat, rather than with the ruffled edges, that were more like hand rolled noodles. They didn't have to be cooked, so it was even easier. I can't wait to make this again!!!

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce
This was very good. I added more garlic powder, just because it wasn't quite enough for us. I sauteed seasoned chicken tenderloins and served on top.

Too Much Chocolate Cake
This cake was gone in less than 2 days! I used mini chocolate chip because that was what I had. I did have to cook mine about 10-15 minutes longer than the recipe suggested. I just kept checking it in 5 minute intervals until the knife came out clean. Next time I'll probably add chopped pecans or maybe use peanut butter chips. This is good!
