About this Cook
In a nutshell, I'm a mom to the most AMAZING little boy in the world, a wife to an equally amazing husband, a die-hard Eagles fan, and a social worker in Philadelphia. When I'm stressed, I take it to my kitchen and instantly feel better. It is where I can think, relax, and be adventurous. My mom, my husband and the many wonderful cooks here on AR, have taught me the most about cooking, and the rest I learn as I go.
My favorite things to cook
Seafood, cajun/creole, and anything and everything else.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking with my mom on the holidays with a bottle of wine and Christmas music on the radio.
My cooking triumphs
I love when I make something for a party or get together and everyone asks for the recipe.
My cooking tragedies
Fried chicken, each and every time I have tried to make it (all of 3 times)

Scrumptious Salisbury Steak in Mushroom Gravy
This was excellent, we both loved it. I used fresh mushrooms because I had a TON of them. The gravy was so delicious. It was a completely last minute dinner idea and was started and on the table in a half an hour. Served with garlic mashed potatoes and corn on the cob. LOVE quick, easy, and delicious dinners. I will make this again, thank you!

Shrimply Delicious Shrimp Salad
I chopped the shrimp because they were too large. Had on crackers as a dip/salad. Only used 1/2 cup mayo and it was A LOT of mayo, so 3/4 cup may be too much, but it's all about your personal preference. May add some Old Bay instead of salt next time to switch it up. Thanks for the recipe!

Best Steak Marinade in Existence
This was very good. The only thing I changed was cutting the recipe to 4 servings (only two steaks for us) and a little less soy sauce because DH isn't a fan. I wish I could've let the steaks marinate a little longer but this was a last minute dinner idea. I didn't blend together, but may try to next time. I will be making this again and will meal plan a little better next time so they can marinate longer ;) Thanks for sharing!
