About this Cook
I'm a very happily married mom of 4...3 girls and 1 boy...ages 5, 4, 2 and 4 months. I'm down-to-earth and very much an Aries. I hate liars and egos. I believe that Karma will get you, for good or bad, so I try to live by the Golden Rule.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook anything and will try to cook everything. I have come to find out that I'm especially good at baking and at cooking fish.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love to have my kids in the kitchen helping me with meals and baking. I'm hoping they will be well-versed in all things kitchen by the time they reach adulthood.
My cooking triumphs
lobster! (first try!) and ganache...for a chocolate espresso tart
My cooking tragedies
steak...I know exactly how I like it, but I just can't seem to get it right. It always ends up rare or well done...lol

Easy Broiled Lobster Tails
We tried this and it was delicious! Our lobster tails were 5 oz. each and I didn't have lemon pepper, so I did the olive oil, some sea salt and white pepper with a little drizzle of lemon juice. My oven has 2 settings for the broil, hi and low, so I did it on low for the first 2 and hi for the second set...Hi is most definitely the right setting for the broiler. Also, I was super careful to only put olive oil on the exposed meat, not on the shells, and I didn't have a problem with them smoking at all. Definitely will be using this again!
