About this Cook
I recently quit work to be a stay at home mom. I didn't cook much when I was working, but I cook almost daily now, and am always looking for food my whole family will love. I live with some very picky eaters.
My favorite things to cook
I don't have a favorite yet.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother and mother-in-law are both excellent cooks, so I'm trying to learn from them. My mom is a healthy cook who makes elaborate meals from scratch. My mother-in-law is a home-style cook who isn't afraid to use pre-prepared ingredients. Just thinking about her cooking makes my mouth water.
My cooking triumphs
I did a lot of baking this Christmas, and everything turned out just as I'd hoped. had a lot to do with that.
My cooking tragedies
My brother-in-law and a friend were visiting for a week. My husband was always telling his family that I make incredible chicken fettucini alfredo. But when I made it for them, my alfredo turned out lumpy and I burnt the garlic bread! I threw the bread in the backyard so it wouldn't smell up the house, and opened a bottle of marinara sauce for the noodles. Of course the next time I made the same meal, it turned out perfect, but there was no one there to witness it but my husband and I.

Shrimp Scampi Bake
I wasn't able to eat this because I'm allergic to shrimp, but my husband and son said it was absolutely delicious! They told me to give it 5 starts. I halved the recipe because only 2 people were eating it, but it was gone so quick I'll make the full batch next time.

Cheesy Zucchini Casserole II
This was just okay. I didn't like the textures of this dish; too mushy and the crunch didn't work with it. The recipe isn't very precise so I had to guess whether to melt the butter, and which way to slice the zucchini. I ended up following several of the commenters suggestions because they were more specific. I added 4 eggs, and ended up with way too much egg. I was hoping to eat leftovers this week, but I don't think this will make good leftovers.
