My grandchildren ! Hurry up and take the picture......I'm holding 50 pounds of babies here!!
About this Cook
I really like to cook and LOVE to look at new recipes. But I find I make a lot of the same dishes over and over. I also SELL food for a living for the largest food distributor in the US.
My favorite things to cook
PASTA!!! PASTA!! PASTA !! I love anything with beans (kidney, black, cannelini, etc) and broccoli, but neither are my hubby's favorites! I make a lot of soups in the winter. I do NOT like to bake....I hate the measuring.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Again....Pasta, pasta, pasta !!
My cooking triumphs
My family is always asking me to make my chicken parm for our get togethers!
My cooking tragedies
I have only made two things my husband has hated. He loves sauerkraut and I found a meatloaf recipe with sauerkraut in it....it was HORRID!! I tried making a stir fry only once and it was so salty (without adding any salt!) that we could not eat it.

Easy Caramelized Onion Pork Chops
Everything is better with carmelized onions!! I am making some tonight to serve over left over steak with cheese in a sandwich for DH. I always add a little butter or olive oil to pan, turn heat to high for a few minutes then simmer covered until he gets home.

Mimi's Zucchini Pie
I LIGHTENED this up by using Egg Beaters, reduced fat Biscuik, and only about 1 Tbl of oil. Added more zucchini (cuz I love it and I can't help myself......this is why I don't bake!!); mixed the parm and some fresh basil right into base; chopped instead of whole tomatoe slices so I could have tomato in every bite. Could not find my pie dishes (really??!?!!! cuz I KNOW I have two of them !!!.......guess it's been a while since I baked a pie !!) Used an 11x7 and had to bake an extra 20 min for over 50 min total. Would also be great with spinach and/or artichokes added !
