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!

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.

Gina's Lemon Pepper Chicken
Simple and tasty! I wanted to top a Caesar salad with some chicken and this was perfect. I butterflied and pounded the chicken breast first, pan-seared it with a bit of olive oil and finished it off in the oven. I only made one breast and seared it on medium-high heat for about 2 minutes on each side and baked @ 350 for 12 minutes. Will make again!
