About this Cook
Newly married with our first house and two dogs. I've been cooking up a storm in our tiny kitchen dreaming of a new chef's kitchen.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking family recipes passed down from my mom, especially chicken cacciatore, pork chop creole and my mom's biscuits.
My favorite family cooking traditions
When the family gets together, we have tons of food, lots to drink and great laughs and long conversations sitting around the table for hours. We also all believe that a meal is not a meal without a bread product.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie
These were awesome. Like other reviews suggested, I refrigerated these cookies before baking. My husband said these are the best cookies EVER. I agree.

Stuffed Shells III
My husband said this is a 10. I can't taste anything because I'm sick but he raved about it. I did add a pinch of nutmeg, 1/2 a tsp. of crushed red pepper, 1 T. fresh basil and a minced garlic clove to the ricotta mixture. I also used fresh parsley because I have a ton of it in my herb garden.

Slow Cooked Corned Beef for Sandwiches
The flavors in this were great. I served this plated instead of on sandwiches. Great recipe
