About this Cook
Very happily married to a man who loves trying my creations and finds my playing in the kitchen entertaining! I simply enjoy "playing" in the kitchen with new recipes.
My favorite things to cook
Pasta meals, breads, and unique sweets. I also love to slow cook meats until they fall apart!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up with my Mommy making the most awesome rolls, breads, biscuits, and pizza dough. I keep trying to be as patient as her when it comes to allowing plenty of time for the dough to rise...still trying!
My cooking triumphs
I made Beef Wellington using a brioche dough from my recently received book set, Mastering the Art of French Cooking. I cooked it at my Mommy's with her - she was amazed that I was patient enough to make the brioche dough! It was incredible! WOW! She found my Julia Child's accent annoying after a whole day of it! It was fun!
My cooking tragedies
The kids and hubby don't let me forget about this one chicken dinner that I attempted...none of us remember what it was supposed to be, we just all agree it was AWFUL! It has been known for years as "remember that one chicken dinner you made." Oh well, it makes them appreciate the average meals even more! LOL

Buffalo Style Chicken Pizza
Made mine a little on the lighter side. Put buffalo sauce on top of wheat pita bread and then grilled chicken chunks and blue cheese crumbles. Topped with some green onions. When making my buffalo sauce i also add 1/2 tsp of vinegar, 1/8 tsp of cayenne pepper and 1/8 tsp of garlic powder.

Hummus Pizza
Loved it as the recipe went and then even tried it with layerd soft taco tortillas to get more of a mouthful if hummus. Great idea! Never had hummus warm so this just took it to a whole nother level. Mmmm

No Bake Cereal Cookies
Great peanut butter flavor. I mixed up the cereals some and added candy corn for some seasonal fun.
