About this Cook
I love to cook for my family and friends. I moved from Florida to Sydney, Australia June of 2007, and have 2 adorable and toddler boys.
My favorite things to cook
My mom and grandmother's recipes. Anything new that sounds interesting and delicious.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love to cook with my kids. We make zucchini bread, guacamole, cookies, quesadillas-- anything that includes them being able to mix and scoop stuff.
My cooking triumphs
Just started baking last year, and I've started to enjoy it.
My cooking tragedies
I cannot make chocolate chip cookies, they always come out extremely flat and something is definitely wrong. Other cookies don't seem to be a problem.

Mary's Meatloaf
This is seriously the best meatloaf ever. My kids and husband loved it. I used breadcrumbs instead of fresh bread and baked it on convection (fan) on 175C for an hour. Awesome.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies I
I made these with my 4 & 5 year olds. I used butter instead of shortening, added an extra cup of oats, added 2 cups of finely grated carrot, and substituted 1/2 cup of regular flour for whole wheat flour. I made them teeny tiny so I can put a couple in their lunchboxes. They came out amazing and I love that there's carrot in them!

Famous Pork Chops
I was out of ritz crackers so I used Cheez-its. Came out great. I broiled for last 5 minutes to crisp them up.
