About this Cook
I live in the Chicago-area with my husband, two sons, and younger sister. I used to work "in the biz", but now I'm a SAHM. Everyone thinks we eat all this great food all the time, but quite often, it's the opposite. I'm always trying and making up new recipes, and they're not always good!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook soups and stews, good old American-regional type favorites (one of my favorite foods is meatloaf!), Italian, Tex-Mex, and anything that sounds a little different.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family was crazy, crazy, crazy, but we sat down to dinner together almost every night. I hope to do the same for my children.
My cooking triumphs
I graduated from the CIA in 1999.
My cooking tragedies
My family still makes fun of me for trying something called "Hamburgers in a Nest" before I left for school. It was toast stuffed into muffin tins, filled with some really horrible meatloaf-type mixture. Live and learn!

Baked Lamb Chops
My husband and I love lamb chops, and I usually go for "the simpler the better." However, for a change I tried this recipe, and I was very pleased. As suggested I broiled for a minute or two to crisp up the breadcrumbs. Easy and tasty recipe. Thanks for sharing!

Brown Sugar Meatloaf
Why I am reviewing this when it already has 1180 good reviews? It was that good! I LOVE meatloaf, and this is one of my two favorite recipes. The brown sugar and ketchup give it a great sweet-and-sour balance. Great comfort food!

Chinese Chicken Salad III
I made the dressing for this salad and tossed it with with grilled chicken (sprinkled with some Asian 5 spice powder), romaine lettuce, and chow mein noodles. The dressing is thick, has a good kick, and is very tasty.
