About this Cook
On the weekends my goal is to try new receipes that my husband and I love! I love surprising him with a delicious meal on the table when he gets home from work. The weekend is the only time we get to have a nice dinner together since we are so busy during the week so I try to make it nice. Oh and I always try to have something for dessert that is Yum-o! My husband Greg and I have were blessed with a beautiful daughter named Madeline who is turning 3 this year. I never knew I could love someone so much until I became a Mom. Being a Mom has brought so much joy to my life. I have only started to enjoy cooking in the past few years. I learned mostly from my Nona who taught me the Italian way to cook. Now I love cooking and am always looking for the next receipe I want to try.
My favorite things to cook
Anything Italian! We love cheese and garlic. oh and carmel brownies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Nona always made Tuna Spaghetti for us when we were growing up and I absoutely hae tuna! However this spaghetti is a delcious dish that brings out my Italian roots.
My cooking triumphs
My carmel brownies are awesome! My husband's team at work always asks when I am going to make them next.

Best Moist Chocolate Cake
This cake is very moist I will give it that, however it does not taste chocolatey at all. I will not be making this again.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies
After all the great reviews this recipe got I was sad when they came out not tasting as good as I thought. They didn't have that great of a taste to them. They were also kind of dry. They were easy to make and the dough certainly tasted great...of course i had to lick the spoon. But I think i will continue my search for that great go to sugar cookie.
