About this Cook
I am a stay at home mom with 2 children and a great husband who gets to spend a lot of time at home. I am a runner and try to eat and fix healthy foods, but I also have a ridiculous sweet tooth.
My favorite things to cook
I love making desserts, I am a cake decorator, so the prettier the better. I also enjoy trying out new appetizers. I love to find new and interesting things to try.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom always made a chicken tetrazini that is a great meal for my family. My husbands grandfather came from Italy so we eat a ton of Italian food from his family cook book.

Cream of Mushroom Soup I
This was really yummy. I chopped up my mushrooms pretty small and sauteed my mushrooms and onions in butter first. And just to keep it all in one pan I sifted the flour over my mushrooms and mixed very well, making sure to not get any lumps. I then added the broth and brought to a boil. I didn't have any half and half so I mixed heavy cream and milk together. I didn't have sherry on hand so I used some white wine I had. This was the perfect way to use up some mushrooms I had on the verge of going bad. Perfect for a cold evening in!

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies
These were really yummy! Pretty soft, next time I will make them thicker but I need to stretch the recipe for 2 school parties. I used the "sugar cookie frosting" recipe with this. YUMMY! I also increased the vanilla to 2 tsp, perfect.
