About this Cook
I am a certified chef. I have not worked in the industry in years b/c I am very picky about the restaurants that I do work in. However I still try new dishes and love to experiment on new ways of cooking. I love trying to make healthy dishes that taste wonderful as well since I am a Type 1 Diabetic.
My favorite things to cook
Anything Italian, but my specialty is Alfredo ad Italian Chicken that is juicy not dried out :) I also love to bake, my husband has the biggest sweet tooth I have ever seen. He would much rather eat candy and sweets then anything else LOL!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family is Irish and german. We say that we are Italians traped in an Irish womans body :)
My cooking tragedies
I have this Banana cake with peanut butter icing that I have made tons of times but since I left the restaurant that I worked in when I started the dish I have never been able to make it outside the restaurant :(

Easy Cold Pasta Salad
I loved this recipe but I changed it up a bit!! I added pepperoni,and red onion, fresh basil, thyme, kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper. I used grape tomatoes instead of cherry ( the one at the store weren't too pretty :) ) I kind of just threw the herbs and S&P in there I didn't measure em, did it Rachael Ray style LOL!!! But it was so delish I will definatetly make it again!!!!!
