Healthy living is an important factor in my family's lifestyle.  It is a conscious way of living that is ever evolving.  I have to say that this was not always the case, unfortunately, but I continue to make great strides by taking lots of baby steps.My journey has had many twists and turns… MORE

About this Cook
I'm a mom to 5 great kids and married to my best friend for 26 years. All Recipes has been an amazing source of ideas and inspiration that has refueled my interest in cooking and sparked one in my children.
My favorite things to cook
Anything sweet or covered in tomato sauce! Right now I am in a bread and pastry craze.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We have a family cook off every few months. Everyone finds a recipe on AR or comes up with an idea and we shop, cook and enjoy together. We have had some pretty interesting meals!
My cooking triumphs
Teaching my kids to cook. All 5 kids know how to shop for groceries and put together a few meals. They can bake, too! Now, if they could do their laundry just as well......;-)
My cooking tragedies
Leaving a cake on the table to answer the doorbell and come back to find our 2 Great Danes chowing down on the "OMG-this-took-me-forever-to-make-and-decorate-for-Christmas-dinner" cake! Arghhhhhh!

Roasted Peppers in Oil (Peperoni Arrostiti Sotto Olio)
A classic dish my Italian MIL taught me to make- just this way. I used fresh and dry herbs, a little parsley and only red peppers like my MIL did. I did use less olive oil than suggested. I roasted the pepper right on my gas range but be sure to line the stove top around the burners if you do - I have those little foil burner pans just for this puropse. So delicious on a roast pork or chicken cuttlet sandwich. Thanks for posting your recipe!

Great Easy Waffles
We loved these! A little extra work with beating the egg whites but it added to the crispy texture. I skipped the rind and used only vanilla extract. Very nice flavor. Will make again.

Simple Breakfast Smoothie
Yum! I froze my fruits to add to the frosty texture I prefer and skipped the ice. I used blood oranges, strawberries, bananas and a little pineapple I had leftover from some fruit salad. You can truly use any combination of fruits you may have on hand. I also used a little vanilla almond milk in place of the ice, honey and extract. Flax seeds would add to the texture creating silkiness, once pureed, but I chose to use almond bran to up the fiber considerably. Small adaptations to a great base recipe.
