About this Cook
I am a wife and mother of 3 beautiful children. I love cooking for my family and entertaining. Cooking allows me to get in touch with my creative side, while making other people happy by getting their bellies full.
My favorite things to cook
I love to try new recipe and new techniques
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love cooking with my 6 y/o daughter. It reminds me of cooking with my mother, the best cook ever.
My cooking triumphs
A few years ago around Thanksgiving, I told my husband that I wanted to have family over for Thanksgiving. I made every dish from appetizers to dessert and the entire meal was a hit. But, the highlight was when my mother-in-law told me she enjoyed every bite.
My cooking tragedies
I was in the 7th grade taking home economics. We were learning to make pancakes, which is something I dread cooking even to this day. So it was my turn to make my pancakes which I burned to a crisp. The whole school was smoky and smelled of burned starch. Needless to say I had a very hard time after that.

Amazing Muffin Cups
This is very tasty. Made it for bunch it was a hit. I left out the peppers because I didn't have any on hand. I chopped broccoli and added that. I also added ham cubes. Definitely will make again.

Baked Dijon Salmon
this is definitely a keeper. I didnt have course dijon as some suggested so i used regular dijon and it was good. next time i may leave out the nuts and the panko only because the bread crumbs didn't crisp like i thought it should and the nut my hubby didnt care for it. but all in all this turned out very good
