About this Cook
Hi Everyone! My name is Christina and I live in Pittsburgh (born and raised here) with my husband, Jim (we have been married for 11 years), my son Gabriel (he is 7), and our twin baby girls born June 22, 2011, Abby and Ally. I love cooking and sharing recipes and have a pretty extensive cookbook/recipe collection. I think my love of cooking comes from my mom and dad. We are definately a family that loves to cook (AND EAT!). I also enjoy watching hockey, LET'S GO PENS!, walking, crocheting and doing crafts. I am looking forward to meeting alot of new people here, and sharing tips and ideas.
My favorite things to cook
EVERYTHING! I love trying new things and we are not a picky family, so anything goes!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Just cook with love and patience. I am 1/2 Italian and 1/2 Lebanese, so we have tons of family traditions.
My cooking triumphs
When I was maybe 12 years old, I had a dinner party for some close neighbors and I made stuffed shrimp, homemade gnocchi with sauce, salad, homemade croissants and creme caramel for dessert. I was so proud of myself. When I cook and I can see the look of enjoyment on the people I am servings faces, that is a triumph all in itself.
My cooking tragedies
None that I can recall, LOL!

Pub Chops
These were ok, but I have to agree with others that said that these lacked flavor. For all the prominent components in the dish, it still felt that something was missing. The family ate them, but I most likely will not be making these again, tho I was glad to try something new. Thanks for sharing. :)

Baked Panko-Breaded Zucchini Fries
Yum! I used seasoned panko crumbs and just a sprinkle of Italian seasoning and garlic powder. I didn't think these were gonna turn out as good/crispy as they were. A great new way to enjoy zucchini...and it's healthy too!!!! Thanks for sharing. :)

Bechamel Sauce
Nice! Mine was little on the thin side, so next time I would add another tablespoon of flour and that should do the trick. Great flavor! Thanks for sharing. :)
