About this Cook
I am mom to two little boys who LOVES to cook (not that I have the time anymore--but I try!). Both my husband and I aspire to be foodies and love variety and trying new cuisines. Here's to hoping my children won't be picky eaters!!
My favorite things to cook
Main dishes and sides. I am not much of a baker but not for lack of trying! More specifically I love cooking the simple every day stuff and changing it up a bit everytime. I like to experiment and rarely stick to to a recipe exactly. I have many recipes in my mind for tried and true basics that I can pull out at any time for meals that will be guaranteed to please.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cherry Cheesecake at Christmas is the top tradition which I carry on every year! Other traditions are slow cooked pasta sauces, stews, braised meats and casseroles. Oh yeah I can't forget about fried bologna sandwiches!
My cooking triumphs
When I try a new recipe and it turns out well and gets added to my repertoire because it was a hit!
My cooking tragedies
When I try a new recipe and it doesn't taste as good as it sounds on paper.

Chef John's Lemon Bars
I can't stop thinking of these. They are perfection. Tart, buttery, crunchy and sweet.

Nordy Bars
I have made these but have yet to taste them as they are in the oven as I type. They smell good! I just wanted to put it out there that when I did the first stage in the pan, I didn't read the directions properly. I plopped everything in the pan at once and heated. The mixture was separated into a peanut butter like paste on the bottom and a butter oil slick surrounding. If this happens to you do not fret! Once I added the eggs (mixed it in the stand mixer) it smoothed right out and all seem to have gone well after that!

World's Best Oreo(R) Fudge
Super delicious and tastes just like Cookies 'n' Cream chocolate bars only creamier and with more cookie taste with the hunks of Oreo in there. Mine turned out great with out a thermometer.
