About this Cook
I am happily married mom of two. I work every other weekend as a medical technologist. I love being home during the week with my kids and volunteering at their school.
My favorite things to cook
I love trying new recipe. But my favorite things to cook and old standards that I spice up. My husband loves my oven fried chicken with crushed rosemary.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family passes down recipes from one generation to the other. I love making my grandmother's pigs in the blanket (aka cabbage rolls for those not from Johnstown). I also have a wonderful time making christmas cookies with my children. They love to help me stir and of course taste the end product!
My cooking triumphs
My son's first birthday and easter were at the same time. My husband and I made dinner for both sets of families. We got this great smoked ham and made a honey-mustard/pinapple glaze. I made oven fried chicken tenders and pan fried green beans with garlic and parmasan cheese. We also had buttered parsley red potatoes. There was a fruit salad and of course birthday cake for dessert. Both families loved it. This was the first time that I had ever cooked for my husbands family. I was very happy everything turned out!
My cooking tragedies
This is the first year that I will be making a big Thanksgiving dinner. Here's to hoping that I won't have a cooking tragedy to put here!!!

Broccoli Cheese Soup
I only gave this 4 stars because I tweeked it a little. I added some celery and garlic to the onions to add some more flavor. I also added 1 diced red pepper to the broccoli. I then used sharp cheddar and velveeta together. I was very happy with the outcome and will make it this way again.

Restaurant Style Chicken Nachos
I loved this! I used chicken I had made and froze from Lime Chicken Soft Tacos recipe from this site. All I had to do was thaw it and mix a little Frank's Red Hot with Lime in it. Then I heated it with the salsa. I didn't need to add any garlic and green onions because the chicken has enough flavor. I also made my own chips by baking flour tortillas cut into wedges. I sprayed them with cooking spray and baked them at 350 for 20 min. flipping them after 10 min. I then topped them with the chicken/salsa mix then taco seasoned cheese and baked another 5 or so minutes until cheese was melted. I served them with extra salsa and sour cream. My husband really liked them and we will be making them again and again.
