About this Cook
I was living in Orlando for a couple years, and just moved back to Pittsburgh. I love this city, and I love the Steelers! My boyfriend and I live together, and I try to cook for him every night. Just like they say - the way to a man's heart is through his stomach!
My favorite things to cook
I mainly like to make Italian dishes, or dishes with chicken and shrimp. Lately, I have gotten turned on to pork also. I would like to try some more complex meals. Oh, I always make breakfast in the morning since I truly believe it's the best meal of the day, but often neglected!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I'm very used to having meat in all meals. Stews and homemade soups were always around during the winter time. Spaghetti was at least once a week!
My cooking triumphs
It seems like things always turn out the best the very first time I make them! I was so excited when my very first attempt at an apple pie turned out great!
My cooking tragedies
Once I made mashed potatoes that came out lumpy and incredibly salty! They were gross!

Honey Dijon Balsamic Vinaigrette
Best homemade dressing I've ever made! Perfect as is - no need for changes. Will use this over and over again. The boyfriend loved it too, and he is super picky about dressings, so that says a lot!

Tasty Collard Greens
AMAZING!!! The flavor is perfect. These are by far the best greens I've ever experienced. Wish I could take the credit. I always put in lots of crushed red pepper flakes for an extra special kick!

Easy Honey Mustard Mozzarella Chicken
Absolutely delicious! I would have never thought to pair mozzerella cheese with this. The chicken was exceptionally moist and packed with flavor. I made sure to cook the bacon before I put it on the chicken as I like it extra well done and crispy. Thank you so much for a wonderful recipe I will make time and again.
