About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Italian dishes, bbq, soups, sauces, and anything new I can come up with for my 3 year old, who is allergic to dairy products. I want her to grow up trying new things all the time, but with the allergy it really limits things. So any time I can sub things for her in a recipe, or come up with one on my own, I get really excited, especially when she actually eats it!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I used to spend weekends at my grandmothers house when I was little baking and making comfort foods like chicken noodle soup, french toast, and spaghetti. She taught me all the basics of good old fashioned cooking, if it werent for her I would be stuck ordering take out all the time!
My cooking triumphs
I am not a very good baker, and I recently tackled cheesecake for the holidays, and it came out awesome! I also slow cooked ribs for the first time a couple weeks ago, and it was much easier than I thought it would be, they came out great!
My cooking tragedies
I tried to make a cream of asparagus soup once when we first moved into our new house. I must have missed a key ingredient, because it tasted horrible. Its the first and last time I have tried to make that soup, I'm sure I could do it correctly now, but I just dont want to revisit it!

Oatmeal Banana Nut Bread
This is a great recipe! I doubled the amount of bananas and left a few bits "chunky" and it tured out wonderful! I also put 1/3 cup chocolate chips in one of the loaves to see how that turned out....YUM! The oatmeal really adds a great flavor and texture to this bread!

Ali's Amazing Bruschetta
Excellent recipe. Served this at a New Year's Party and it was gone before I knew it.

Best Lasagna
This was very good, however next time I will omit the layer of fresh basil, it was a little to strong for both my husband and I. Otherwise I added some crushed red pepper to my sauce, because we like our sauce spicy, and also added a small layer of sauce to the bottom of my pan. Good recipe overall, fed my husband and I for a few days!
