About this Cook
I'm 25, and have been married nearly 2 years. After all our eating out as newlyweds... we are in need of a diet change. I recently went to part time work, so I now have more time to experiment with recipes!
My favorite things to cook
I love trying new things. My favorite food is Italian.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mom always cooked "safe" meals that none of the kids would be picky about. That meant a lot of the same dinners without much flavor. I intend to try lots of new things and incorporate them in my future family.
My cooking tragedies
It can get expensive trying new things... especially if I end up not liking it and it all goes to waste. I'd like to find a shopping list that will include a week of similar ingredients for different recipes. It would be especially helpful to find recipes made specifically for the leftovers of the previous night's dinner.

Oh My Gosh Muffins
I made these in a hurry for a gathering of friends. I didn't have bananas or chocolate chips, instead I substituted a can of peaches (drained and pureed in blender) and dried cranberries. They turned out incredibly moist and well set. I think this recipe is a great base recipe for muffins, and you could add/substitute anything you want.

Melt In Your Mouth Pumpkin Bread
This is a family favorite. For the last 3 Christmases I've quadrupled the recipe and made 20 mini loaves to take to friends and family. It's becoming a family tradition! The recipe is just perfect as is.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup
My husband saw the onions and said he wasn't going to eat it. I got him to try it anyway, and now it's his FAVORITE. He's insisting I make it for a big family get together. We don't drink or have beer on hand, so I used chicken boullion cubes for broth. It worked great!
