About this Cook
I am currently unemployed and just getting ready to go back to school. I'll be studying to become a paralegal. I'm married, have two step children and a precious Yorkie named Reno.
My favorite things to cook
I'm always trying new recipes on Allrecipes and have found that I love making Chicken and Shrimp the best.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother never let us cook when we were growing up, so I just watched and learned. She made the best sauce in the world and now I'm proud to say that I have followed in her footsteps.
My cooking triumphs
I love to prepare Chicken Marsala and Picatta and my family and friends can't get enough. When I cook Italian, my friends are always telling me that I should bottle the stuff.
My cooking tragedies
I've had my fair share of disappointing meals, but for the most part, the rest have been great!!!

Pineapple Grilled Pork Chops
One word - Awesome!!!! Chops must marinate overnight for the full effect of this simple marinade. Absolutely the best grilled pork chop recipe on the planet - IMO.

Chicken Milano
Sorry Marbalet, but I cannot rate this with more than one star. Either I did something wrong or this recipe failed to say how salty sun dried tomatoes are. Thank God I did not add any additional salt. I followed this recipe to a tee and it was like eating a salt shaker. Even my husband who is not too picky couldn't eat it. I ended up picking out the tomatoes and tossing them. Let's kiss $4.00 goodbye!! Can someone please tell me if the s/d tomatoes are supposed to be rinsed first?

Sour Cream Cheesecake
I have made this cheesecake several times and it has to be one of the best and easiest cheesecake recipes. All of my guests have raved about it saying it was better than the Cheesecake Factory cheesecake. Then, along comes my twin sister and her comment was "I've had better". To her I say.......better left unsaid. So now I have renamed this The I've Had Better Cheesecake and everyone stil loves it. Don't change a thing. It is delish!!!!!
