About this Cook
I'm a wife to a wonderful husband, mother of two beautiful children--a girl and a boy, and "mom" to an adorable little Yorkshire Terrier--his name is Rocco. I am also the Business Development Manager for a local credit union and proud to have a wonderful team that I work with. My husband and I love to spend time together cooking and trying new recipes (well, I do the cooking and he does the tasting). I have been very blessed.
My favorite things to cook
I love to try all types of appetizers, dips, casseroles, and desserts. My favorite cuisines are Italian and Mexican. However, good 'ol American-style food is GREAT too!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother and I have been "cursed" with going WAAAAY overboard when it comes to cooking for family and friends. Holidays and get-togethers are ALWAYS overloaded with tons of traditional dishes and lots of new recipes that we whipped up for the occasion.
My cooking triumphs
I have been fortunate to have made a lot of delicious dishes over the years that people across the country have praised and asked for more. But, in 2010, I had my first official triumph when I placed 4th in the pineapple upside down cake contest and 2nd in the sticky buns at the Pennsylvania State Farm Show. Very fun!!
My cooking tragedies
Hmmmm...I'm sure there's been a few, but I obviously "block them out" b/c I can't think of one to write.

Absolutely the Best Nacho Dip Ever
AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!! This is SOOOOOOO DELICIOUS!!!! I made very slight changes and I think they made a huge difference, but the basic recipe still deserves 5 stars. I used a combo of shredded Monterey Jack and Cheddar and added a small can of sliced black olives on top for color. But, the MOST important change I made, was to eliminate all of the shredded lettuce and used a big bunch of chopped cilantro instead. OUTSTANDING!!! My family and guests RAVED!!

Shrimp and Crab Casserole
How did this get such great reviews? I made it tonight and it is not good AT ALL! Bland, Bland, Bland. I even added some dill, Old Bay and a little garlic trying to spruce it up a bit. AWFUL!! Don't waste your time on this dish!
