About this Cook
I am married mother of three. I am Italian, so I was raised on traditional Italian cuisine, with all the fat, carbs and sugars that come with it. My daughter was DX as a type 1 diabetic in 2008 @ the age of 7, and our eating habits changed drastically. I am always searching for quick and easy, healthy, red meat free meals, snacks and drinks :) I am down to earth, and I love to host BBQ's, dinner parties, and holiday get togethers for family and friends.
My favorite things to cook
Traditional BBQ with a non tradtional twist and anything Italian
My favorite family cooking traditions
My annual Fourth of July BBQ (With my 100% homemade BBQ sause..YUM!!!)..Thanksgiving and Christmas @ my house :)
My cooking triumphs
BBQ...I have finally mastered Chicken on the grill. Without burning it, under cooking it or it sticking to the grill :) Yeah me!!..lol
My cooking tragedies
Baked flounder..OMG It was the worst..I would LOVE a recipe for baked fish that actually taste good.

My 9 yr old daughter is a type 1 diabetic, so I used Splenda instead of sugar and diet lemon lime soft drink for a completely carb free treat for her!! She absolutely loves this drink, this recipe is a keeper in our house.

This is a very filling meal. I did change the sausage from polish to Eckrich smoke sausage, with that little change, it was Yummy!!!
