About this Cook
I love to make meals that my family can celebrate around...the heart grows strong with good food, family and laughter!
My favorite things to cook
Comfort foods, Mexican and Italian dishes--really, anything that tastes good.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Down home comfort food. If you can't eat at my house and feel soothed, I haven't done my job!
My cooking triumphs
I'm known for my trifles...they are pretty darn good!
My cooking tragedies
Broiling steaks for 40 minutes for my boyfriend...thank God I was 18 with a smoking bod because those steaks were totalled.

Dad's Steak Rub
I would never have believed that maple syrup on a prime cut of steak would be delicious until now! My family acts like it's Christmas everytime there's a sale on ribeyes at the grocery store. Seriously. Thanks DAD!

Corn and Crab Bisque
Divine. I used imitation crabmeat and was very happy with the results (and lower grocery bill!) Served with a warm, crusty roll, it was a nice treat to myself!

Wild Rice Stuffing for Turkey
Totally awesome! I used an onion instead of a bell pepper and my picky 8-year old son ate HALF of the dish!!! Very tasty--finally, a different side dish besides mac & cheese!
