About this Cook
I'm a stay-at-home mom that grew up in Brooklyn NY and is now living on the beautiful space coast of Florida where I can see rocket and shuttle launches from my home front! (Awesome!) I'm married with one little boy with hope to have more. My husband loves my cooking! I've learned to cook from my mom since I was really young and just evolved in the craft from there.
My favorite things to cook
Kickin' hot collard greens. Homemade meat mac and cheese. There are lots more, but I'm drawing a blank right now.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Eating at my moms for Thanksgiving and Christmas! I don't think I have any traditions of my own yet.
My cooking triumphs
(Dec. 16, 2007) - I made an amazingly odd but tasty dinner of stuffed green peppers, kickin' hot collard greens, and baklava for dessert. My husband, who adores the collard greens I make, proclaimed that the stuffed green peppers stole the dinner show over his beloved collards.
My cooking tragedies
The first time I cooked for my hubby - but we only new friends at the time. I made Hamburger Helper and absolutely killed it with my Puerto Rican way of seasoning. We ate it, but we both new it was terrible.

Chocolate Chip Cookies I
My family loves these cookies! I've received many compliments on these chocolate chip recipe, some were even shocked that these were home made from scratch. I used softened butter instead shortening and, since I don't have brown sugar on hand, I've had to substitute white granulated sugar and add blackstrap molasses. I also have to bake them for a longer time - closer to 12 minutes to get them baked properly. I'm starting my third batch because I these cookies keep disappearing as quickly as I make them. This recipe is a keeper!

Eastern North Carolina BBQ Sauce
FABULOUS! It's tongue and lip smacking GOOD! Makes me wish I was born and raised in NC. I've made this recipe twice already and used it for more than just pulled pork. It's been wonderful each time. This recipe/sauce will be a staple in my house from now on.
