About this Cook
I'm a single mom to a wonderful teenage boy. I work full-time and always try to plan out our meals for the week each weekend so I only have to grocery shop about once per week at the most. I love gemstones and enjoy creating beautiful jewelry when I have the time and inspiration.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to cook are meals that are fairly easy and quick to put together but that also have incredible flavor. I tend to use a lot of garlic! When I have more time, like on the weekend for instance, I enjoy making more time-consuming meals.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Sunday my son and I start our day with a really good breakfast, then we spend a couple of hours working off calories playing Wii. After, it's time for me to create something else in the kitchen...I usually like to spend a good part of Sunday making various yummy things.
My cooking triumphs
I feel triumphant whenever a new dish turns out really well and all the side dishes are finished at the same time!
My cooking tragedies
I love tuna casserole! I made it one time though, and it was so hideous and inedible - I'm still not sure to this day what on Earth went wrong.

Linguine with White Clam Sauce II
I used this recipe as a base and created my own dish (as others did). I used 1/2 stick butter and a drizzle of olive oil, threw in 6 cloves of minced garlic & let it saute a few, added 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes and let that toast a minute (next time I will add even more), next the wine & let that reduce a minute or two before adding the clam juice and then the juice of half a lemon. The other changes I made: I cooked the pasta a minute or two short and finished cooking it in the clam broth and didn't add the parsley (less than called for) til the last minute. I served it with french bread with butter and a delicious riesling. So good I'm gonna go have my second serving right now!
