About this Cook
I live with my family that consists of my husband and our three dogs. I work at a bank and spend most of my free time relaxing and enjoying our home.
My favorite things to cook
Pasta! I love the variations of sauces, spices, and noodles. It stands to reason that my favorite thing to eat is also my favorite thing to cook!
My favorite family cooking traditions
We don't have many cooking traditions in my family, which I believe is the reason I have grown an interest in cooking and establishing traditions in my own home.
My cooking triumphs
2006 was my first year hosting Thanksgiving and it was a great success!
My cooking tragedies
I seem to have a handicap when it comes to baking. It doesn't matter what it is- I can even manage to screw up the cookie recipe from the back of the chocolate chips bag!

Day Before Mashed Potatoes
While the recipe was simple to prepare and very flavorful, I found that even after adding some whipping cream before baking the potatoes were still very dry. I agree with previous reviews that this dish should be made within a few hours of serving and not allowed to refrigerate overnight. Great taste though!

Cranberry Sauce I
This dish was very easy to prepare and a big hit at the table! I found it a little bitter myself, but the cranberry sauce lovers at the table raved!

Yummy Yam Casserole
My review must be taken with a grain of salt as I am not a yam fan. However being a traditional dish at Thanksgiving I thought I'd try my hand at it. While this recipe was very easy to make, I felt the allspice was overpowering in the final dish.
