About this Cook
I am in my early 40's and recently left the corporate world to raise a family at home! I'm loving cooking for my family every night, what a blessing!
My favorite things to cook
Lasagna, Tacos, Gourmet Pizza, Chicken Roll-ups, Praline Cookies, family friendly foods!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I'm Italian so it has to be the wonderful Italian dinners my family enjoys together, with fresh bread of course!
My cooking triumphs
Prime Rib done perfectly for a Holiday dinner, Birthday cakes for the family, the potato salad my husband married me for, lol.
My cooking tragedies
A coconut creme cake from scratch, while distracted...I forgot to put the baking powder in, oh wasn't a pretty site, however it was for a birthday and with no time to waste I filled the fallen center with frosting to cover my big oops!

Simple Hamburger Stroganoff
So yummy, I added Worcestershire and I had one of those Green Onion and Chive Containers of Cream Cheese, so used that instead. Family loved it and so easy to make!
