About this Cook
I am a stay at home mom of 3 kids under the age of 6. Before kids, I was very career oriented, and had no time to cook. Now, I try to do new things and include the girls.
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook meals my kids will eat, or stuff from my husband's italian family. I also enjoy baking.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have fond memories of holidays - my grandfather using a hand beater to make whipped cream, pork stuffing at Christmas (love the smell, hate the taste), and burnt-bottom cookies. My husband's italian family also has lots of holiday traditions, so now we are trying to incorporate them all into traditions for our kids.
My cooking triumphs
I recently overcame my fear of pie crusts and baked many this fall. My sister in law makes perfect pie crusts, so I was intimidated. During the holidays, I finally made an excellent crust (everyone said so). Yeah!!
My cooking tragedies
Sadly, too many to mention. I often have troubles with chicken breasts - no flavor. Everything I make in the crock pot (except spag sauce/ meatballs) comes out horribly - bland and mushy.

Beef Stew VI
Excellent! My whole family loved it. After I browned the meat, I realized that I didn't have beef bouillon or beef broth, or anything "beefy". I used 4 cups of chicken broth with 3 tsp worchestershire sauce instead. It worked great. The stew was delicious!

Cavatelli, Broccoli and Mushrooms
My kids (3 of them, under 6 years old) loved this!! I didn't have any mushrooms (they love mushrooms), so I added baby carrots with the broccoli instead. Really good family dinner. Everybody cleaned their plates!

Stuffed Peppers My Way
My kids love these! I use yellow/orange peppers, because my 6 year old likes them best. I leave out the feta for the kids and just sprinkle with parmesan before serving. My husband and I like the feta!! A great, easy entree!
