About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
All the things I love to eat...Steak, Pork Chops, Shrimp Scampi, Stuffed Shells, Lasagna, Chicken, all kinds of stuff.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year my mom has made Christmas Cookies, and given them to all of our friends and neighbors. I think I may actually give it a shot myself this year.
My cooking triumphs
Recently, for the first time ever I made a whole roasted chicken. It actually turned out quite well! It was so moist that I may make a whole turkey this year, too.
My cooking tragedies
I have overcooked several very expensive pieces of meat. It happens to me occasionally. I've become a pretty good cook, but for some reason, occasionally my mind just wanders and then I look in the oven and dinner is charred and crispy.

Oma's Cottage Cheesecake
I was really surprised by how well this came out. I put some apple chunks in mine (mistake!) and they weren't all the way cooked when the cake was done, but I will definitely make again without them. I also made a pretzel crust because I didn't have graham crackers. That worked out well. Thanks for the sinful taste without the calories!

Apple Stuffed Chicken Breast
SO I'm giving it 5 stars, but I actually made it totally differently. I sliced three apples and an onion and a clove of garlic. I sauteed all these in a pan with butter until the apples were soft and the onion were clear. I stuffed the chicken breasts with the mixture and shredded cheddar cheese, then put in a roasting pan, and covered with more cheese and crumbled ritz crackers, covered, and baked for about 45 minutes at 375. I uncovered at that point and allowed it to brown for about 15 more minutes. SO DELICIOUS, everyone LOVED them!

Pralines, Coffee and Cream Cake
Very unique cake. It is really rich, and like some of the others said, it's definitely a 'grown-up' cake. I made it for a birthday, so to make it prettier I made two 8 x 8 cakes, put the pralines on top, then put icing in the middle and on the sides. I also reserved some icing to use as a border, melted some butter and a square of bakers chocolate and added that to the reserved icing. I put the border around the praline top, and at the bottom. The whole thing was absolutely delicious, and it looked great that way, too.
