About this Cook
I love to cook for my family but use a lot of short cut methods like my mom did. Family traditions are important to us and usually this is with food.
My favorite things to cook
Sunday Sauce with any kind of pasta or lasagna or baked ziti.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Sunday Sauce... using my grandmother in laws sauce recipe! Starts right after church and then letting it cook all day.
My cooking triumphs
Can I say my Sunday Sauce???
My cooking tragedies
I think there have been 2 total tragedies... burning the marshmellows on candied yams... and 1 time just made the worst ever beef stew... oh and christmas cut out cookies I can never bake cookies...

Mom's Zucchini Bread
My loaf pan is slightly larger than what this recipe calls for... not enough left over to do muffins with but th recipe ws GREAT... I used half applesauce half oil as recommended. A crumb topping would be nice also but it stands on its own!!! Loaf went in an hour at work.

Portobello Mushroom Burgers
Used my counter top inside grill. Also subbed garlic powder for fresh ... grilled a few slices of vidallia onion to top. Awesome I had a burger for lunch so this was perfect for dinner.

Alfredo Sauce
Very good... as easy as opening up a jar of sauce but so much fresher. I used liight cream and a mix of parmigiano reggiano and shredded peccarino ramano. I went overboard on garlic ... but like others I sauteed the garlic and little onion in the butter with a little olive oil. This sauce was for tortellini with broccoli very good!
