About this Cook
I LOVE to cook, and I love to eat as much I love to cook! =) Luckily I have a decent metabolism. I started making dinner on Saturdays (to give my mom break) when I was about 14, and I've been hooked ever since. I love trying new foods, and living in Italy for two years definitely influenced how I cook now. There's nothing better that a great Italian meal and a glass of Chianti.
My favorite things to cook
Baked Ziti, Chicken Marsala, Lasagna, Honey Soy Chicken, Pot Roast, Shrimp Alfredo Sauce, Prosiutto Wrapped Chicken, Chicken Pot Pie, Tiramisu, Cherry Pie, Apple Turnovers, Poppyseed Bread, Banana Bread, Chocolate Cake...
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom made homemade meals pretty much every night that I can remember growing up. It was rare that we ever ate fast food, and leftover nights were something we looked foward to; eating a sampling of all the amazing meals she had made that week!
My cooking triumphs
I've had many cooking triumphs! I like to try new recipes all the time, and nine times out of 10, they're a success!
My cooking tragedies
Not many here. I usually choose new recipes that center around the skills I already have. That being said, my mom was an amazing teacher and gave me an incredible wealth of cooking knowledge!

Jo's Rosemary Bread
This bread was awesome!!!!!! I brushed the top of it with butter and sprinkled it with fresh ground pepper before serving it warm with olive oil and vinegar to dip in, and it literally disappeared!! =) Yay! It makes the etire house smell delicious while baking...~sigh~ =)

Fruit Pizza I
Great recipe for kids!! My daughter absolutely loves this one. I made it along with homemade pizza-and when I say homemade, I mean it! Homemade sauce with fresh seasonings and homemade crust with fresh toppings!- and it was all a hit! BIG TIP though! Instead of using sugar to whip with the cream cheese, keep the vanilla and substitute the 1/2 c. sugar with MARSHMALLOW FLUFF!! YUM!! Blend it until smooth and spread over cooled cookie dough. I kept it simple and just added fresh strawberries and blueberries. I would suggest making this treat on the Fourth of July, because mine definitely looked patriotic! =)

Chicken Pot Pie VIII
I adore hearty, homemade meals, and this pot pie was just that! I chose to make little, individual pot pies, and I had so many left over ( I doubled the recipe) that I froze quite a few and passed them on to friends and family, who raved about them! I sauted the veggies until soft, and pre-cooked the potatoes before adding them. I used a different pastry recipe (a favorite out of my personal recipe collection) and it turned out thick and delicious with a flaky crust that was to die for! I crimped the edges of each crust and slashed the top to let steam escape. They looked like perfect little pies, and they tasted that way too!! A definite favorite!
