About this Cook
I just love cooking and seeing eyes light up with delight when I made something that is yummy for others. I really take pleasure in cooking for others, but I don't think I can handle the pressure of restaurants. (Chefs are my food heroes)
My favorite things to cook
I heart carbs! I love cooking pasta dishes, but I like grilling some fish too.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother is the only one who makes the best gravy that we have every year. I've been watching her for years and I think I just be able to replicate hers.
My cooking triumphs
I have to say making one of my favorite celebrity chefs' bolognese sauce and having it turn out definite restaurant quality has been my highlight.
My cooking tragedies
Making peach cobbler in a hurry, I had to do without part of one of the ingredients and it just turned out caky. Lesson learned, double check all the ingredients in case someone used some.

Marinated Tuna Steak
LOL at myself for forgetting lemon juice. Came out amazing though! Converted a non fish eater!

Addictive Sesame Chicken
Such a fun recipe to make! It's a bit time consuming, but well worth the effort. Seasoning the chicken BEFORE it hits the batter really does make a difference.

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue
This is a great busy day recipe. I was hesitant about using frozen chicken, but it comes out so moist! I've tried it with various barbecue sauces, but I think my favorites are Sweet Baby Ray's and Lucille's. It's even a kid favorite!
