About this Cook
I am always trying to create new dishes for my hubby and I. I'm always trying to improve my cooking and increase the difficulty of the recipes I try. I'm usually trying to find quick yummy recipes for busy working days and save the more complex recipes for the weekend when I can take the time and enjoy cooking and baking more.
My favorite things to cook
*Low calorie/healthy easy workday meals *Comfort foods *Italian food *Baking
My favorite family cooking traditions
Growing up, quite often on a weekend my Mom would make her famous spaghetti sauce, she would start a huge pot of it early in the morning and let it simmer away all day with her fresh homemade meatballs. By supper time after smelling her delicious sauce waver through the house all day, there was no better comfort food that a big plate of spaghetti and meatballs. Now I have finally learned to take that sauce recipe and make it my own! I make a huge pot and freeze containers of sauce and meatballs for great quick easy dinners.

Lower Fat Banana Bread I
Made this as written except realized I was out of butter so I subbed apple sauce. I found it pretty bland and not enough banana flavour (and my bananas were very ripe). It was just ok for me but thx for sharing!

Hamburger Steak with Onions and Gravy
This was good comfort food, I made it as written minus the sherry because I didn't have it, instead I splashed a little Worcestershire into the gravy.
