About this Cook
I am a writer living in Pittsburgh and I am loving my new hobby of learning how to cook. Nothing makes me happier than whipping up a great meal with wonderful friends.
My favorite things to cook
I love classic dishes like hearty meatloaf and tender pot roast. I also love to bake from scratch.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My dad is an amazing cook and grill master and both of my grandmothers have a unique style with traditional American material.
My cooking triumphs
My boyfriend and I came up with a beef taquito recipe on the spot and made it for a New Year's Eve party on the first shot. Everyone love it!
My cooking tragedies
I have failed many times at making dough rise, turning out cookies, and burning chicken.
Recipe Reviews 3 reviews
I added meat to the sauce. This was a great guideline to making my own take on classic lasagna.

Macaroni and Cheese with Bacon
This recipe was a lot of fun to make and left my apartment smelling divine. The bacon makes the dish a little bit too greesy, so next time I am going to use a thinner cut and maybe try to cook it for a minute or so before putting it on the bake. I would also recomend adding more cheese. All things considered, it was a success, although I can't ever see anything bacon and cheese not satisfying my hungry boyfriend.
