About this Cook
I'm a Mom with 2 growing boys and a husband. I cook at home 5-6 nights a week, and I'm always looking for more variety in our weekly menus. It's always about finding the balance between cost effective, quick and easy, and nutritious and good tasting.
My favorite things to cook
Besides just getting dinner on the table every night . . .I really enjoy creative cooking, and add my spin to different recipes. I have recently started baking more, and I would like to improve my baking skills.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family is Italian, so I'm always happy with the basics - Lasagna, Meatballs, Italian Sausage, Braciola and Caesar Salad.

Spicy-Sweet Glazed Salmon
My family loved this simple salmon recipe. The glaze gave the salmon excellent flavor without being overpowering. I only needed to cook my salmon 10 minutes total, so be sure to keep an eye on it. I added glaze at 5, 7 and 9 minutes.

Spanish Flan
This flan had great flavor and texture. I did, however, have trouble getting out of the pan and it turned into a mess.
