About this Cook
I'm a wife of almost 19 years and Mother of two quickly growing boys - 14 and 10 as of this update.
My favorite things to cook
I love to grill almost anything on our charcoal grill. I'm best known for flank steak, baby back ribs and pulled pork. Indoors I'm known for my crab cakes, meatballs and guacamole.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My husband is the cookie baker, but we have a tradition of baking sugar cookies and frosting them for Christmas. I'm usually the one who whips up these batches of cookies and I found the best recipes for them on AllRecipes!
My cooking triumphs
A few summers ago I perfected my recipe for pork baby back ribs. Yum!
My cooking tragedies
I'm just not a great baker - I'm the kind of cook who likes to add a little of this or that to my family's taste. I see baking as an art, which I have not mastered.

Garlic Butter Sauce I
This was great! Like others suggested, I made this into a garlic cream sauce. I added a Tablespoon of flour when the garlic was done cooking, and stirred in 1 1/2 cups heavy cream. After the sauce was thick, I removed from heat and added 1/2 a pound lump crab left over from making cold Crab Cocktail Dip (recipe found on Allrecipes). The crab got hot without overcooking. Delicious!

Sausage Pasta
Awesome! Reduced the fat by cooking the sausage until 5 minutes from done, drained it, then added the oil and cooked the onion and garlic with the meat. As another reviewer suggested, I used fresh spinach and just stirred the leaves into the sauce for a couple minutes until wilted and bright green. Whole family loved it - no complaints!

Cream Cheesy Cubed Zucchini with Lemon and Oregano
I loved this! I did it a little differently since the night I made it I was also grilling steaks. I grilled the zucchini with a little oil and cayenne pepper then finished it in a pan with the lemon zest, a little more oil, cayenne and light cream cheese. Will definitely make again and again!
