About this Cook
I'm happily (most of the time!) married & have 2 boys ages 8 & 11. My younger one loves to cook,& says he wants to be a chef when he grows up! I love to cook,hate to clean of coarse! I'm a home mom now, but am a former flight attendant, & certified dental assistant. I LOVE to feed people, & see them enjoying the food.....sooo rewarding!! I've got Italian heritage so I guess that's where I get it!!
My favorite things to cook
Casseroles,comfort food. I'm also pretty good on the grill, & do a lot of that in the summer. My husband is terrible on the grill,so I take pride in it!! My baking skills are limited to simple cookies & box cakes! I would love to improve in that area. I LOVE Indian food, but have yet to cook anything close to what I get out!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My paternal grandma was german, & she made delicious potatoe dumplings she called "glace balls". She would serve them on special occasions, w/ pork roast & sauerkraut. My maternal great-grandma was Italian, & made a delicious meat sauce, My mom can do it, but I have yet to get it right!! It's delicious!!
My cooking triumphs
Hmmm.... doing my grandamas potatoe dumplings, my moms cabbage rolls, chicken piccata, & anything that my family says mmmm to, no matter how simple. I want my boys to remember my cooking fondly as my husband & I remember our moms.
My cooking tragedies
I just can't make meatballs no matter what!!! I can make meatloaf though. I should just bake those dumb meatballs!! For now ,frozen meatballs are better than anything I can produce!

Margaritas on the Rocks
I've been searching for the perfect rita since a trip 2 yrs ago to San Antonio! This is it!! Smooth, not too sweet or sour. I believe the secret to a great rita is the Grand Marnier. Since these are expensive, I tried the Gran Gala, & it was very good. Don't leave out the Triple Sec either. This is a keeper forever. They go down way too smooth!!

Warm Crab Parmesan Dip
Very good "base" recipe for crab dip. Definately follow other reviews, & don't use canned crab. I added about 1 tbl. of old bay seasoning, & a few dashes of hot sauce. Fresh shredded cheese is a must! I think this recipe would be a bit dull w/ out these additions. Placing the dip in a small crock-pot on warm setting is a good idea too. Very good w/ the blue tortilla chips.

Beef and Irish Stout Stew
I'm sorry, but this was terrible in my opinion. I have never had a meal fall so flat in my life! This had no flavor even after adding brown sugar, bay leaves, & worcestershire sauce. Maybe I did something wrong, but I followed the recipe exactly. Very disappointing. This is my first bad review ever--sorry!
