About this Cook
I am a stay-at-home mom. I have two daughters (one is 13 and the other is 13 months). My husband is a career firefighter and does the cooking for the station. Needless to say, we are a family of cookers and eaters. The Food Network is pretty much on 24/7 in our household.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make desserts - any and all. I also like to make brunch, which is my favorite meal.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother (Nana) was the best cook I've known. Everything was homemade and everything was fresh - they had their own garden and next door my uncle had strawberries. So, as far as cooking traditions - cook fresh and cook homemade.
My cooking triumphs
The first thing I've ever made. I was in fifth grade and made a jelly roll. My first time hosting for Thanksgiving rates up there too.
My cooking tragedies
Ummmm, my husband and oldest daughter would without a doubt say it was the time I made shrimp and scallops and this salad (if you'd like to call it that).

Mom's Pumpkin Pie
I am not a huge pumpkin pie fan, but after this recipe, I've changed my mind. It was excellent. Did use fresh pumpkin and made a homemade crust.

Grilled Chicken Adobo
I like one reviewer over cooked the chicken, but the taste was great. For the sauce, I did as one person wrote and decrease the soy sauce to 1 cup, increased the water to 2 cups and used rice vinegar.

Glazed Meatloaf I
I wished to try a new recipe. I was disappointed. No one in the family cared for it.
