About this Cook
I was raised in a home where Mom was an amazing cook and Dad was the best BBQ-er ever! We owned a few pizza parlors so I've had every kind of pizza ever made (almost). Now that I'm a house-wife and Nana I'm doing all of the cooking and loving it to death! AllRecipes is the primary reason I'm getting good at it :-)
My favorite things to cook
My hubby and I have changed what we eat over the past few months. We're changing to the Paleo diet which couldn't be more perfect for us. Check it out at We love meat and vegetables! And the different sites give great ideas and recipes as well. AllRecipes has Paleo recipes and so far they've all been great! I love learning about different things to cook with, what to mix and match with, and there's always a quick fix recipe available with needed. So either give me a skillet, a BBQ, an oven or all of the above and I can knock out quite a meal! One that you wouldn't even know what part of a diet! Hahaha :-)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Spaghetti!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My family's not Italian, but my Mom makes the best spaghetti sauce I've ever had... and this comes from a woman who goes to an Italian restaurant no matter where I'm traveling. Unfortunately she doesn't have a written recipe. She cooks with her eyes, stomach and the garden. I'm getting better, and it's an awesome goal to have!

Stuffed Sole
Pretty good, but it doesn't look anything like the picture. I don't know what the green seasonings are, but it looked good. Taste was pretty bland, but there's a lot of hope. More garlic, use sea salt. I'll read through the reviews to see if there are additional seasonings to include.

Bacon Wrapped Pork Medallions
Everything about this recipe is perfect! I've made it a half a dozen times and the only thing I've done differently is to use this recipe for pork chops too. Works for that! :-)

Chicken with Garlic, Basil, and Parsley
LOVE it!! Didn't change a thing, and everyone loved it! Great for leftover lunch too. It's 100% Paleo as well.
