About this Cook
Love to cook with my husband. We enjoy creating dishes together. Cooking is always a part of lives. Weather we are boating, camping, or watching movies on a Sunday. There is always a meal at the center of it.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy baking, cooking for family events, hosting party's. I don't really have a favorite dish to cook. As long as I'm in the kitchen I'm happy.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love to cook for my family. I am constantly trying new dishes on them. My sister-in-law bake hundreds of cookies every year at christmas and give them as gifts.
My cooking triumphs
My biggest triumph was cooking for my daughters open house (approx 75 people).I got rave reviews and even was asked if I was available for future events. Have considered opening a small catering business with a friend. However, still working full time so no immediate plans for that yet.
My cooking tragedies
Thankfully I can't recall any tragedies, but certainly have had my share of failures. Not being afraid to keep trying is what makes a good cook, GREAT. I'm learning new things everyday and enjoy all my triumphs and even the failures.

Eggplant Parmesan II
My first attempt cooking eggplant. I was amazed at how great it tasted. I will never fry eggplant after trying this recipe. My family loved it. it was alot more work then I had anticipated but well worth the effort. Will make this again soon.

Hamburger Cookies
My co-worker made these. So simple and cute, however she used brownie rather than mint cookie. It was fantastic. the brownie gave it the look of meat. Loved it so much I'm making them this weekend.

Italian Tacos
Loved this recipe. Was looking for an Mexi-Italian dish for my sons birthday. Found this and was suprised at how much we enjoyed it. I did garnish with cottage cheese, however ricotta and mushrooms would be great too. Will be making this again.
