About this Cook
I'm recently married and also recently graduated from college (Yeah!) so I'm starting to have more free time to try out all the awesome recipes I have found here over the last couple of years!
My favorite things to cook
Anything really that my family enjoys. For some reason, people think of me as the dessert specialist so I am always asked to bring pies, cakes, cookies, etc. to family functions
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holidays with my mom learning all her secrets because she never followed a recipe (and now neither do I) and she also had all of her favorite ones stored in her head rather than a recipe box!
My cooking triumphs
I Love to take a recipe and modify it according to my tastes. If I do that with one I find on I always make sure to say so in the review. I don't think it's fair to judge a recipe harshly if it has been changed!
My cooking tragedies
I haven't had any tragedies yet, but I'm sure there will come a day when I update this section!

Cucumber Sunomono
Love, love this simple healthy recipe! I used half seasoned rice vinegar and half unseasoned rice vinegar so I only added 1 tsp. of sugar. We both really enjoyed it. I like any dish that includes fresh ginger!

Mozzarella-Stuffed Pesto Turkey Meatballs
Love this! I was able to form meatballs even though I used ground turkey breast and thanks to the pesto mixed in and mozzarella inside, they were not dry at all. I did not drizzle with olive oil to save calories, just used cooking spray in the pan so they would not stick. I served with zucchini "noodles" and homemade marinara sauce. So delicious my hubby was not even aware they were healthy. Score! LOL

Elnora's Peach Cobbler
Exactly the way my Aunt Carol makes all of her fruit cobblers! It's especially great with peaches, blackberries or blueberries. I add vanilla extract to the batter and sprinkle the top with cinnamon before baking. This is a yummy, quick and no fuss recipe. I'm going to try adding ginger to the batter next time I make this with peaches!
