About this Cook
I've been married for almost 2 years to my childhood friend Shawn. We have a 7 month old son named Ben and a pug named Lucy. I love reading, all kinds of art, and spending time with my family.
My favorite things to cook
I love making soups and comfort foods like meatloaf and mac 'n cheese. I like trying out new recipes for ethnic dishes like phad thai and anything french.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My husband and I are still expected at our parents houses for the holidays but I always make our own Thanksgiving dinner either before or after the actual holiday. It's nice to celebrate a holiday of our own.
My cooking triumphs
I make a pretty awesome pancetta wrapped meatloaf if I do say so myself!
My cooking tragedies
I have the hardest time making rice. I don't know why, but it never turns out right. Keep meaning to buy a rice cooker to help myself out, but never seem to get around to it.

Artichoke Dip I
What a great recipe! Instead of using a cup of mayo, I used 1/2 cup of light mayo, and 1/2 cup light cream cheese. It wasn't greasy at all and it was sooo yummy! My hubby and i ate the entire thing by ourselves! :)
