I've been a member since 2006 and read most of the reviews that accompany recipes. I notice that many times when readers rate a review and say it was "bland" they invariably mention that they added "a ton more garlic" or "more cheese'" etc. If a recipe tates bland to you, the ingredient… MORE

About this Cook
I was born and raised the cities of Michigan and now live in western New York in the cutest little town called Scottsville. I'm still working and married to the most wonderful man in the world - second only to my father. We have no children of our own, but he had 3 sons when we became a couple. I have 10 nieces and nephews, two of whom are now married and have children, two are in serious relationships, the rest are all happy and working. I love them all more than anything - they are my joys in life! Chocolate and peanuts are two of my favorite foods.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook Mexican, Italian, Asian and "American" food. I also love to make desserts and any and all kinds of holiday foods.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family heritage is Italian, but I am good at all cooking traditions.
My cooking triumphs
I actually had a gingerbread project - two rocking horse sleighs - published in a gingerbread magazine a few years ago. I made them for my nieces for Christmas.
My cooking tragedies
I'm sure I'm not alone in this one - left sugar out of a cake recipe. I killed the yeast in my first attempt at making bread... I made a nice doorstop, though. I didn't wait long enough for my stew beef to get tender before adding the other ingredients and it was like eating veggies with small pieces of rubber.

Foolproof Rib Roast
I first tried this recipe two years ago at Christmas and again last year. It was so perfect! I plan to cook my roast again this year the same way. I use garlic salt instead of powder and freshly ground black pepper. I do have potatoes to roast, as well, and will put them in during the last roasting time for the beef. Please try it. I know you won't be disappointed.

Garlicky Beet Delight
This recipe was just great. My husband loves beets, but I'm not a big fan, so I am always looking for recipes I might like, too. Once in a while, try a sliced onion instead of the garlic. Quite tasty, if I do say so myself.
