About this Cook
For the past 8 years I have been a stay at home mother and wife. I left a hectic career after the birth of my first child and have never looked back. I decided then, that I would embrace my new life and explore my many varied interests, including cooking. I took my first cooking class when my first child was 6 months old and was hooked on learning anything and everything about cooking after I won first place for the final meal competition in that class.
My favorite things to cook
The foods I love to make are chili, cookies and anything pertaining to brunch. I also love trying anything new.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving, I start planning months ahead. My favorite dinners are for more than 20 people. It is such an exciting challenge for me.
My cooking triumphs
Thanksgiving 2007. Without any stress or any pre-dinner wine, I pulled off a beautiful and delicious Thanksgiving dinner for 24. My eldest guest, in her 80's, wrote in her blog, (yes, my 80 something friend blogs) that it was the best tasting (Thanksgiving food) she has ever had. I am still filled with pride.
My cooking tragedies
Thaksgiving 2003. I foolishly attempted to deep fry a turkey with much enthusiasm and support from my guests...UGH...the final result was so awful, a disgusting juxtapostion of grease and dryness. I (with much gratitude)gave the turkey fryer away to one of our guests that evening. I've never been more embarrassed regarding my culinary talents (or lack thereof.)

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan
This is a super easy, majorly delicious dish. This will be a weekly meal at our house. Our children LOVED it & I loved that they were getting their Omega 3's! I did reduced the butter, mayo and cheese by half, it was more than enough!

Banana Muffins II
All I can say is YUM! My kids love these. I added mini-chocolate chips and made mini muffins...I left one pan in the oven too long and they were still delicious. I will definitely make again.

Devil's Steak Sauce
I thought this recipe was just okay. Perhaps the raving reviews from others raised my expectations. I actually preferred my grilled steak simply seasoned with salt and pepper and without the sauce. My husband liked it better than I did.
