About this Cook
I enjoy cooking and would love to become a foody-type. I am trying to find more time to experiment in the kitchen in order to entertain at home more.
My favorite things to cook
I love the flavors of Mexican food and Italian cuisine. I am also hoping to expand on easy, quick family meals as my children get older and more involved in after-school activities.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We love to grill out and have family and friends over to relax on the deck in the summer. Baking Christmas cookies with the kids is also a tradition that we have started the last few years.
My cooking triumphs
I have continued to serve some great homestyle meals for my family. I also have finally accomplished my own meat sauce for pasta. My husband and my father ask for it continuously.
My cooking tragedies
Anything with fish! I have never baked, broiled or fried a fish entree that I am proud of.

Asparagus, Chicken, and Pecan Pasta
This is exactly what I was hoping for, delicious. I skipped the pecans because my daughter is allergic to them (I can't imagine what it would taste like with them.) I also added a little extra chicken broth like a previous review suggested and used dried basil, paprika & added some garlic powder. My husband & I both sprinkled extra Parmesan cheese and red pepper flakes to our plates. My husband said it was restaurant quality. I will definitely be making this again.

Mexican Lasagna II
We love mexican dishes at our house and this one didn't dissapoint. It was perfect served for a Super Bowl party with all the toppings to add.

Baked Potato Soup III
This is a great, hearty soup for those cold winter days. I served it to girlfriends with a salad and homemade bread and we felt as though we were out at a cafe. I will definately make this a lot more.
