About this Cook
I love to cook and entertain - not so much a baker though. I do a little catering here and there, mostly for fun but I have had a few paying jobs. I like trying new recipes and recreating fun classics!
My favorite things to cook
Appetizers of any sort! I love doing cocktail parties. I also love the big family holiday get togethers. I am never afraid to cook for a full house!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love cooking all the Holiday dinners for my family. I love that we have embraced new dishes over the years and created our own traditions. Like cheese manicotti at Christmas. The red marinara sauce and fresh cooked spinach make it so festive. We serve it along side the honey ham and it is delicious!
My cooking triumphs
Catering the local apartment association's Christmas Dinner every year to rave reviews, winning my first Chili Cookoff ever entered, delicious and innovative cocktails that always disappear!
My cooking tragedies
Ahhhh...the blueberry gravy...don't ask! It wasn't supposed to be blueberry but the blueberry muffin mix and the flower got switched somehow and I didn't catch it until it was too late!

Beer Butt Chicken
This was sooooo moist and delish! I did soak the bird in beer and onion and garlic all day. Then stuck it up there on that beer can to cook in the stove @ 350. Basted it once with a mixture of melted butter and honey mustard. Juice was dripping from the breast meat! Keeper!!!

Roasted Beets and Sauteed Beet Greens
These beets were delicious right out of the oven. I sliced a few and ate them as is and cubed a few, sprinkled with crumbled goat cheese and toasted walnuts. Great salad!

Butternut Squash and Turnip Soup
I have made this several times. Sooooo good. I kick it up a bit more with crushed red pepper but it is delish!
