About this Cook
I am married with two kids ages 5 and 7. I would love to cook more but working full time you are always juggling something...This website has been fantastic!
My favorite things to cook
Our family is a melting pot! We have some italian, greek, spanish, and middle eastern. Every new member to our family brings their family recipes too! Luckily they are all delicious!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Sunday family dinner was always a big.one. We are a little to big and scattered now to have the entire family..but we still have sunday dinner in each of our families. We usually had homemade spaghetti, or chicken and dumplings with all the fixings...yum.
My cooking triumphs
I can make homemade chicken and dumplings as good as my.grandma, from scratch without bisquick (yuck) or biscuit dough.
My cooking tragedies
My first attempt at a roasted chicken was a disaster! Not enough salt, and the dark meat was not.done.

Grilled Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich
This was surprisingly good. I fried in butter instead of cooking spray and drizzled some chocolate on top. The kids loved it. Next time I will make it as french toast.

Peanut Butter Apple Dip
Easy to make and everyone loved it! Like others I did not use the full amount of sugar. I may add some vanilla next time. A keeper!

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes
Like most, I ran out of pancake mix and decided to give this a try. These were delicious! I followed suggestions by other reviewers and reduced the salt and I added vanilla. I also added more milk as we like thinner pancakes in our house. The kids loved them, I made some plain and some with blueberries. Thanks for a great recipe!
