Just Me
About this Cook
I've been cooking for almost 10 years and love to find ways to cook things organic with no artificial anything! I'm a firm believer in food as a medicine and believe that the healthier food we eat, the healthier we will be. I'm not a crazy guru, but I do visit the Farmer's Market every single week and may start going twice a week. I live in Southern California and love all sorts of food.
My favorite things to cook
I am Italian, so Italian is definitely my heart and soul. However, I also love the slow cooker, love to cook hot mexican type dishes, and also love the good American hearty meal.
My cooking triumphs
Cooking Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter dinner for the first time all by myself! Cooking Filet Mignion perfectly. Perfecting an Over Easy Egg.
My cooking tragedies
I have a really bad habit of burning baked goods and making a mess of the kitchen when I cook.

Asparagus and Mozzarella Stuffed Chicken Breasts
This was alright. I used Panko breadcrumbs instead of regular breadcrumbs and I highly recommend it. Maybe I didn't pound out the meat enough but for whatever reason it didn't cook all the way for me and it's stuffed so you can't cut it and I had undercooked chicken when I went to eat :( So cooker beware of the cooking time unless you pound out the chicken super thin!! Personally, I could've used more cheese. Maybe sprinkle some cheese on it right as it comes out of the oven or something. It was good, but nothing that couldn't have been done separately (not stuffed) to get the same result in terms of taste.

Mini Meatloaves
THIS WILL LOOK TOO MOIST WHEN YOU PUT IT IN THE PAN!!! I was really worried when I put mine in the pan because it was so moist I couldn't shape it into a big mounded meatloaf in the bread pan. However, when it came out, it was super moist, tasted absolutely amazing, and is one of the best meatloaf's I've ever made or eaten. The hubby LOVED it and went for seconds. This will be the recipe I use from now on. I took someone's suggestion and let the cheese, oatmeal, egg, and milk mixture sit for about 10 minutes. It did soak up some of the liquid. Then I added the meat. Like I said it still looked too moist but in the end it was a fantastic meatloaf. I also used exactly 1lb of hamburger and not a package that had 1.2 or 1.3 pounds. That could've been why mine was more moist too.

Roasted Garlic Lemon Broccoli
This was pretty good. As others said be careful just how much lemon you add. I lightly squeezed half a lemon and it was a little too much. I suggest squeezing it into a separate bowl first then tossing the broccoli in it. My hubby and I like firmer vegetables so we didn't cook it quite as long. How I judge when vegetables are done is when they get that beautiful bright green that roasting gives them. If you over cook them, they scorch and become really bad tasting. I never thought to put fresh lemon on broccoli. I'm sure it will taste better next time when I put less lemon.
