About this Cook
I grew up in the restaurant business. I enjoyed a good prime rib & lobster from the age of about 7. I have traveled all over the world and enjoyed all cuisines. My husband and I both love to cook. We enjoy food and we say that the best meal is the one you put "love" into.
My favorite things to cook
We like to experiment and cook many different things. My husband grills a lot. I guess my favorite would be my special recipe bruschetta that I created.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking together and calling it an occasion. On the holidays my mother and like to start early with Irish coffee while preparing the stuffing! :-)
My cooking triumphs
My bruschetta. Perhaps I'll post the recipe sometime. Also my chicken marsala and my spaghetti.
My cooking tragedies
I tried making tiramasu for my mother, non of us could eat it. I'm not sure what went wrong but it has now become the family joke. I am better at making the meal, than I am at the desert. I'd like to learn to make some nice deserts for special occasions though.

Special Deviled Eggs
I am giving this recipe five stars because it is a VERY GOOD recipe that MOST ANYONE would at "least" LIKE. My own recipe seems to still be a favorite in my house so perhaps I'll post that one some day. THIS IS A VERY GOOD RECIPE. Once making it, there are changes anyone could make to suit their individual taste. However, that said, I think this is a "CAN'T GO WRONG TO PLEASE A CROWD" basic start recipe! Thanks!!!

Alyson's Broccoli Salad
YUM!!! I had been looking for a recipe like the Deli Broccoli salad I enjoy. THIS IS IT, YAY! My husband said he could have used lighter on the red onions, but I LOVED IT JUST THE WAY IT WAS. I can see how you can change this to your own taste. THIS IS A GREAT RECIPE to start with. LIKE IT as is and LIKE it if you change per your favorite taste! GREAT RECIPE, DO TRY!

Baked Ziti I
I can see how so many people would like this, WE THOUGHT it was lacking something. I guess we could go through and read every couple thousand of reviews and see how people may have altered this recipe, but I'd rather just find a different one. My husband thought the SOUR CREAM didn't go well in this dish. I liked it ok, I just thought it was missing something that gave it the "WOW-FACTOR". Thank you for a good recipe though; AGAIN, I can understand why it is a good recipe for so many others.
