I was asked to write about my experience with the Mazola cooking oil and prepare 2 different dishes using it.  First up was the Pork Carnitas with Cilantro Tomatillo Sauce. The carnitas were so delicious! This is what I did: I like to get everything out before I start cooking. That way, I’m… MORE

About this Cook
I find cooking very relaxing. It is a hobby that I have embraced since I was 17 years old. I have tried hundreds of recipes as well as creating hundreds of my own. My husband and I love fine dining and my tastes have changed to a more sophisticated one. We often find ourselves pairing food with wine or beer and keeping records of what we like the best. We love to entertain.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite dinner party is Korean Barbecue. I set up a grill right on the table to cook and I can make all of the salads a couple of days in advance. My guests are always wowed and it is always a memorable night.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite family tradition is brunch on Christmas day. After a morning of opening gifts we always sit down to a formal brunch. There are omelets, pancakes, waffles, sausages, bacon, you name it we make it. Although the place settings are always formal, we sit around the table in our robes and enjoy each others company over casual conversation.
My cooking triumphs
My ultimate cooking triumph I would have to say is ravioli. I have practiced this to where I now have a good handle on making the pasta just right.
My cooking tragedies
Hands down my biggest goof was making chocolate bowls for chocolate mousse. The chocolate was too hot when I put it on the balloons and after doing about 4 of them, they all popped. There was chocolate everywhere!

Sherry Apple Pork Chops
I substituted the pork chops with Johnsonville hot Italian sausage and did everything else the same. This turned out phenomenal! I served it over some creamy Parmesan polenta. This will for sure become a fall favorite for us!

Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili
This was very easy and delicious! I added some extra seasoning, garlic and a jalapeño for extra kick!

Mexican Tortilla Breakfast Casserole
This recipe was really good! I halved the recipe because there's only 3 of us here. There is a lot of prep work and it's not easy to just throw together, but it was worth it in the end. Even my 2 year old ate this! I didn't have pepper jack cheese, so I just added 1/2 an jalapeño minced with cheddar. I also added more salt and pepper.
