About this Cook
I'm a new mom getting used to my new job of "at home mommy." I worked for ten years in the nonprofit community as a fundraiser, but this new job is more challenging - and rewarding - than all ten years put together! Married to a wonderful husband who is always willing to try new recipes!
My favorite things to cook
Italian - I feel like I can't mess that up! And Mexican - so easy!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom and I bake Christmas cookies together every year. I look forward to developing special traditions with my own family as my child (and hopefully someday, children) grow up!
My cooking triumphs
Since becoming an "at home mom" I've baked every loaf of bread and every pizza crust that we've consumed. I'm working on hamburger buns...oh, and they're all 100% whole wheat!
My cooking tragedies
I made a beef stew once that wasn't fit for the dog. It was actually grey. Don't ask me what happened or what I thought I was doing, was terrible.

Creamy Frosting
Yummy! My first time making buttercream frosting and thought it was easy and delicious!

Mushroom Pork Chops
I must be missing something - I thought this recipe was rather bland. I did use a "healthy" version of Campbell's Cream of Mushroom soup - maybe that killed the recipe. So for anyone else out there who likes to make things healthier, maybe skip it with this recipe! I did think it was easy, and it has potential...we have leftovers tonight and I'll try to jazz it up with some spices and salt.

Guinness(R) Corned Beef
I slow-cooked this on high for 6 finally got tender at the very end - worth the wait!
