About this Cook
I'm currently living in Orlando, Florida with my wonderful husband, Kevin. We both cook professionally and are enjoying our first year of marriage. We enjoy good food, fun movies, and experience all the travel we can. In fact, we met in Alaska where we were both cooking at a resort. I've attended Kendall College in Chicago, Illinois, studying the Culinary Arts and found a new appreciation for food there.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook anything but I'm working on my baking skills. I also like to challenge myself to make yummy meals using what I have on hand - kind of like a personal Iron Chef competition.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We don't really have much in the way of any traditions in my family but I'm told I come from a line of great home cooks.
My cooking triumphs
I consider anything I prepare that Kevin enjoys to be a success!
My cooking tragedies
I have unfortunate luck with brown sugar. I don't keep it in a container, and storing it in the package it came in proves to be best for me. Since I don't measure, a little brown sugar usually turns into a lot.

Steak Diane
My ex's mother used to make this same recipe with the addition of red wine in the sauce. It cuts the acidity of the lemon juice and compliments the steak nicely.
