About this Cook
I am the oldest of 6, so I have been cooking for a crowd my whole life. Now that it's just me and hubby, I'm working on focusing on quality over quantity. The 9-5 routine can take a toll on our weeknight meals, so I am always trying to find quick but delicious dishes.
My favorite things to cook
I love creating dishes that look and taste like they are from a restaurant. I have a craving for any thing pasta, so I do find myself looking for new takes on old favorites.
My favorite family cooking traditions
For birthdays, my mom always made the meal of your choice. It was a great tradition that brought the family together for food and fun.
My cooking triumphs
I have a perfectionist attitude towards my menu. Every week I plan out what meals we are going to have so I can make my grocery list. This practice has also carried over to dinner parties we host, and the time spend on the menu really pays off. I also love pairing the appropriate wine or cocktail with a meal.
My cooking tragedies
After cooking pork tenderloin for a guest, I spilt the gallon of tea all over the meat and twice-baked potatoes. The gracious guest, seeing my tears well up, attempted to eat it anyways! It was mortifying!

Rabbit with Mustard
Great rabbit recipe! I didn't have regular onion, so I diced 5 green onions. Also added more bacon. (You can never go wrong with more bacon!) We didn't have angel hair pasta, but we put the sauce over white rice and it was very tasty! I agree that this would probably also work in a slow cooker. Will have to try it once the hubby goes hunting again!

Foil Barbecued Trout with Wine
The hubby loved it. I added garlic as others suggested. This is a good trout recipe that can be built on.

Oven Roasted Trout with Lemon Dill Stuffing
Great way to cook fresh trout! The stuffing was amazing, so next time I think I'll make more to eat as a side dish as well. I also added a glug or two of white wine to the stuffing to moisten it up more than just the olive oil. Also, instead of using lemon zest, I used lemon pepper I had on hand. I also sprinkled that on top of prior to roasting. Can't wait until the hubby brings some more trout home!
