About this Cook
Will be 48 this year and have been married for 26 years. We have one son, who is 20 years old. He is into healthy food right now (low carb, high protein), and my husband is not. Quite a challenge to find things they will both eat.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake. My husband is the griller. He does a great job on chicken and ribs. I love to search for new recipes and to cook for family gatherings.
My favorite family cooking traditions
my son has a favorite dessert that I love to make him, Chocolate Mint Bars. Other favorites are my chicken enchiladas, meatloaf, chili con queso, salsa, zucchini bread and bread rolls.
My cooking triumphs
bread rolls
My cooking tragedies
pork crown roast for Christmas last year. I KNEW the times that they told me seemed too long, but I trusted them and even checked it 1 hour before they said it would be done and it was WAY over done. Very expensive mistake.

Spicy Cheesy Refried Beans
This was really good. A bit too much garlic for me, but everyone loved it.

Tortellini Chowder
The base of this is awesome, but for us, it needed some meat and something a big more, so I added some browned spicy Italian sausage and some Italian seasoning. I made it for a simple lunch of soup and homemade bread/butter.
