About this Cook
I am a Mom and Grandmom. I have more time at home now. Run a small home internet business. Started expanding my cooking choices last 5 years. Wanted to eat more healthy. Tired of eating in restuarants & fast food. Although, still love my In&Out Cheesburger once in a while. Found my own fresh cooking was so much more flavorable. I only use fresh herbs now.
My favorite things to cook
-Italian with fresh herbs. -Love sauces. -Easy and fast. -Not into long preparations. Only when cooking scratch soups.
My favorite family cooking traditions
-Old fashioned "Chicken Fried Steak" is still on our home menue. Coated with egg and flour and fried in oil. Only prepare 2 time a year now. A hearty meal for when sons are visiting. -Chile Tostados / Always raves -Chile Cheese Omelet w/ avacado & Sour Cream
My cooking triumphs
-Veal Marsala and Chicken Picatta. -Buschetta -Cheese stuffed broiled tomatoes. -Cappelinni Pomodoro. Lots of basil. My favorit herb. -Stuffed Shells with ricotta and cream cheese. Tomatoe sauce.
My cooking tragedies
First and last Apple Pie. Apples dried out when cooked. Hum?

Seven Layer Taco Dip
I start with a can of Dennison Original Chile Beans. Makes a big difference. Everyone is surprised by the different taste of the chile. Put the sour cream on top of it when layering. Sooo good. Never have a bit leftover. I am not a fan of taco seasoning and do not need it with the chili.
