About this Cook
I am a wife, mother of four, grandmother of four, and a nurse. I love to travel, do scrapbooking and to cook.
My favorite things to cook
I'm not quite sure I have a favorite, but I absolutely love trying new and different recipes. I love cooking different foods from scratch, that is when I have the time.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I don't really have a particular style or tradition. I just enjoy all foods from all nations and all styles.
My cooking triumphs
I make an awesome New York style cheesecake, which I sell to a handful of people. It beats Junior's cheesecake hands down.
My cooking tragedies
I can't make fried chicken. Don't ask! I rarely fry foods and for some reason, every time I try to fry chicken (once every couple of years) I ruin it.

Chocolate Trifle
Oh my goodness, this is awesome. Perfect for serving a large crowd. This was one of the desserts I made for my daughter's engagement party and it was a definate hit.

Shrimp with Lobster Sauce
I did not care for this recipe, and I measured everything exactly to the "T". The shrimp mixed w/the cornstarch and Sherry is great, but it goes down from there. Way too salty!

Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto
This was awesome. I used this to make the Artichoke and sun-dried tomato chicken (on the site) and it is a family hit. This recipe is a keeper! Thanks!
