About this Cook
I'm a stay-at-home mom to two wonderful little boys. I haven't been cooking long, but I love experimenting with new recipes and I really enjoy making home-made meals for my family.
My favorite things to cook
Chicken, mexican food, pasta, just started getting into baking
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family shows their love through food and I think I'm the same way. I love to make nice meals for my family and get really upset if I mess something up.
My cooking triumphs
I can't say I've gotten there yet; I feel like I'm still a beginner. I still get nervous about cooking for people other than my husband and son, so I think that once I'm able to do it, I can count it as a triumph!
My cooking tragedies
A couple of years ago I was trying to make chicken soup and fell asleep while the water was boiling. The fire alarm didn't go off, and it's a miracle I woke up because the water was gone and the pot was a charred, smoky mess!

Greek Lemon Chicken and Potato Bake
This was really good. My picky husband and my 8yo really liked it. I used Greek seasoning instead of the lemon herb and only used 1/4 cup olive oil for 6 drumsticks and 2 boneless chicken breasts. The chicken was done after 45 minutes so I had to cook the green beans in the microwave. After the 45 minutes, I took the breasts out and broiled the drumsticks and potatoes for a couple of minutes to crisp up the skin.

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes
I had a little trouble with the sauce since the instructions weren't really clear to me, but the end result was good.
