About this Cook
I've lived in Washington St. my whole life. My husband and I finally got married after being together 10yrs and having 3 children.
My favorite things to cook
Homemade banana bread, Fetticinni Alfredo, pretty much anything you can bake.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making chocolate chip cookies on Christmas Eve for Santa with my 2 oldest kids.
My cooking tragedies
I make homemade mac'n cheese on the stove, one time I needed more cheese, and while shredding it I forgot to turn the pan down and keep stirring, I burnt the food. It was awful, but my parents still ate it. I think I was like 14 at the time. Never made that mistake again.

Beef Stroganoff II
This was great, having a large family I had to double recipe. I was worried because I had never made stroganoff homemade before. It turned out so good, I did add more paprika then called for and some garlic powder, a little bit of fresh Basil, and left out the salt. Nice!

Cola Onion Pork Chops
I made this last night for my family, there are 5 of us so I doubled everything. I really liked the flavor of the gravy, it was kind of sweat, though I did have to thicken it with corn starch and water. The meat was not as tender as I had hoped, so next time I am going to slow cook it like some others have suggested. I will be making this again very soon.

Meatloaf with Fried Onions and Ranch Seasoning
I love this recipe. I did change a couple of things. I used 1 pkg onion soup mix, the whole packet of ranch mix, added some shredded cheese in the middle of the loaf, and used a pkg of Ritz crackers instead of bread stuffing. It did take a little longer then an hour to cook though because of the cheese layer. We had a friend over for dinner and my husband, the kids and our friend loved it. In fact he asked me to give the recipe to his mom. I don't usually like meatloaf, but this was something I will be making again very soon
