Saturday afternoon I was completely speechless, surprised, and shocked.  I think by the look on my face everyone would agree!  Let me start from the beginning..... A few months ago Marianne had decided she had so much fun at the Vegas Round Up she would host another So Cal gathering.  When she… MORE

About this Cook
About me...well cooking has been apart of my life since I can remember. My grandma used to make EVERYTHING from scratch. My favorite pastime when visiting, was watching her make cinnamon rolls. I didn't start a passion for cooking, however, until I started dating the man I would marry. He loved to eat and I thought the way to his heart has got to be through his stomach, right?!?!? Well, it worked! We had our first child Dec. 2013 and I am looking forward to making his baby food and finding out what he likes and doesn't like. I can't wait to teach him how to cook, but at the same time don't want to rush his growing up either! :) Cooking relaxes me, like a good book. I love making a mess but hate cleaning it up!
My favorite things to cook
Its always evolving and forever changing! I've found I have a knack for finding really great appetizers for special events and I'd rather cook than bake. I love pairing cheeses with wine and having people over to try them.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My great grandmother was from Germany and made some amazing dishes. The two I remember helping her with the most were her meat balls and German chocolate cake. I've started my own traditions with my husband now, I love making Irish Soda Bread each year for St. Patty's Day, a nod to his family history. We've also decided to take on Thanksgiving, so far we've been quite successful!
My cooking tragedies
Definitely have had my share!

Black Beans and Pork Chops
This dish was pretty good! I used flavored black beans and homemade salsa. The recipe tasted fresh and delicious. I loved how easy it was to prepare, especially on a busy weeknight. We will be making this again!

Strawberry Spinach Salad I
This salad is delicious!! I followed other reviews and used balsamic vinegar for the dressing instead of white. I also added a little feta cheese to the mix. It complemented our early Easter dinner perfectly. I will definitely be making this recipe again!

Greek-Style Tuna Salad
YUM!! I've been trying to find ways to jazz up my tuna salad for lunch at work. This recipe hit the spot! I used the absolutely fabulous greek/house dressing from this site and switched out the kalamata olives for black olives because of personal preference. Thanks for the great recipe!
