About this Cook
I started cooking about 6 1/2 years ago when me and my boyfriend moved in together. I really didn't like cooking back then at all, basically because I didn't know how and was too afraid to try new things. Now I love to cook, thanks to websites like these and the food network!
My favorite things to cook
I like cooking italian and warm comfort foods like beef stew, soups, pot pies. During the summer i love making different salsas and marinades for the bbq.
My cooking triumphs
Cheesecake for sure!! I got a recipe for a cheesecake from a very good friend of mine and i tried it out. It weighed a ton!! and my oven was at the time 50 years old and it took forever to bake!! But it worked and was really good!
My cooking tragedies
Chicken Helper!! my and and old roommate used to take the hamburger helper box and add canned chicken. We thought it was soo good. Now when I think back to that, that was a cooking tragedy!

Grilled Marinated Shrimp
This is a great recipe!! Like anything you can adjust to your own taste. We only added a tiny bit more salt, a little more hot sauce because we are hot sauce addicts and double the tomato paste. We didn't have parsley but we have home grown cilantro so substituted that. True Perfection. Thanks to Robbie, this will be a bbq staple in our house.

Baked Ziti II
This came out delicious!! I read a few reviews and changed it up a little bit. I used 2 16 ounce containers of ricotta and 2 eggs. i had left over homemade marinara sauce in the freezer that i had made with hot italian sausage and used that instead of jarred sauce. it came out really good and the leftovers were even better!

I make these all the time now, my boyfriend loves them to snack on. i add a little more cayenne pepper or new mexico chili powder to spice it up a little more. they are yummy!
