About this Cook
I'm 43, married, no kids and only get to cook a couple of times a week as I'm pretty busy during the week socially.
My favorite things to cook
I love baking...anything. Christmas is the best because I get to bake lots of different things. Chocolate covered pretzels, fudge, cookies, Santa Snacks, Butterscotch Squares. Yum. I also love to BBQ.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Growing up we always had Chinese food for Thanksgiving Eve and Tacos on Christmas Eve. Now that we're grown, my siblings and I still enjoy those traditions.
My cooking triumphs
My BBQ chicken is the best thing I make. I also have a knack for having everything be ready at the same time so we're not waiting on a side dish or rolls.
My cooking tragedies
My husband says my home made pizza is the only thing he doesn't like, however, it's one of my favorites.

Butternut Squash Pizzas with Rosemary
Wow! This was a terrific recipe and I can't wait to try it again. I used goat cheese and basalmic vinegairette with the squash and onions which was a beautiful blend of textures and flavors. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Corrigan's Minestrone
This was a very good recipe, but I did make a few changes. I added zucchini, 1 can green beans (with juice) and garbanzo beans. I'll tweak it again next time by adding more spices as I thought it was a bit bland. My husband loved it and went back for seconds so that was a good sign! Thanks for sharing this recipe.

Oven Roasted Red Potatoes
This is a great side dish. I added some sliced onions as a little extra flavor. My husband devoured this and I'm making it again tonight with steaks.
