About this Cook
I'm a nurse in pediatrics and I love my job. I've traveled the country twice and looking forward to taking a world wide trip and tasting all the amazing food!
My favorite things to cook
Italian, Mexican, Southern, Comfort, anything new or a creation of my own.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My father and I have been cooking Thanksgiving together for years. It's a great time and we always get huge praise from all the family.
My cooking tragedies
My first attempt at Beef Wellington was a disaster! The pate was watery and the crust ended up a sloppy mess after cooking. I've yet to attempt it again but it's on my wish list to master!

Sausage Gravy
My very Southern fiancee asked for biscuits and gravy one morning and this was an instant hit! I did use a hot pork sausage for some extra kick and it turned out really good!

Pork Normandy
I noticed a lack of seasoning so I added salt, pepper and thyme to the pork before browning it. I put it in a casserole dish and used a little more chicken stock and apple juice instead of cider. When it was done I didn't blend the apples and onions but strained the liquid and then thickened it with a little cornstarch before adding the cream. The meat was so tender and juicy and had some great flavor!
