About this Cook
I am the CEO of this busy house with 3 year old twin boys that are 19 months older than my 1.5 year old daughter and 2 crazy dogs that add to the "fun". I am a single mom M-F as my husband works out of town during the week so it is a busy house, but there's never a dull moment!
My favorite things to cook
Italian and now Indian (thanks to my mother-in-law)

Vodka Sauce
I love vodka sauce and was excited to try this. I did not care for it! All I could taste was vodka. I added more of my homemade sauce and a ton of pancetta to make it palatable. Next time, I'll halve the vodka.

Spinach Enchiladas Verde
Nice start and idea for a quick meal! I changed the following: used yogurt not sour cream, 5 whole wheat tortillas not corn, doubled the spinach and nuked it for 1 minute then squeezed out all the water before putting it in the dish, and added more cheese. I added the following: browned a medium finely diced onion in olive oil with 4 cloves of minced garlic then added a chicken breast diced seasoned with salt and pepper to the pan to saute. Then I put all of the ingredients into a round casserole dish and layered it like lasagna (as others recommended). My 3 kids (3 and under) loved it as well as my husband and I. It's pretty healthy when you think about it so I am pleased to add this to my list of quick meals. Thanks so much for a great idea for a quick and easy meal!!!

Tomato Spinach and Basil Soup
This was a great base recipe to work off of. I went heavy on the Spinach (to up the nutrition for my 3 kids 3yrs and under), doubled/tripled the garlic, used Italian Seas since I didn't have fresh basil, browned the onions in butter then added garlic, added 1/2 cup Chicken Broth and 1/2 cup parmesan (we love cheese here!), and then crushed red pepper for my husband and I. I used the immersion blender before adding the Spinach since my kids can't eat chunky soup (or drink as it is through their straws!). Served it with seasoned croutons on top and grilled cheese to dip. Yummy! Thanks for the idea!
