About this Cook
I am 33 years old stay at home mom. I have an 11 year old daughter and 8 year old son. Our family enjoys camping and biking and my kids love to cook with me. Cooking is my stress relief and my passion. The harder the recipe the funner it is.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook just about anything. I love to cook italian food because my hubby is italian and love to cook that for him and his family.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Ever since I was a little girl I would follow my mother around the kitchen when she cooked. She instilled in me the passion to cook and the joy that it brings to provide for your family in that way. I'm so glad I was able to continue to cook with my mother up until she passed, 7 months ago, as I now have some family recipes that were never printed in my head.
My cooking triumphs
I'm not much of a baker but love to try new things. I made my hubby a Tiramisu for his birthday. It took half a day but was well worth it. Also, I have made fudge which was lots of fun and really good.
My cooking tragedies
I really don't have any...I feel like you live and learn from all your mistakes.

Chicken Eugene
I grew up eating this and have not had in many years. When I first tasted this it brought me back to my childhood. First, the people who are complaining that this was too salty... if you read on the dried beef jar, it says that if using in a recipe to rinse with warm water before using. This will reduce the salt content. My whole family really liked this even my picky 16 year old. The only thing I will do different next time is not use bacon at all as it did not add much and it was slimmy. Either that or I will brown the breast with the bacon on it before baking.

Poblano Chile Enchiladas a la Gringa
This was good but seemed to be missing something. The sauce is really good (needs more salt) but thought it needed somthing else. I might make again and play around with it a little.

D's Famous Salsa
Perfect!! The only change I will make next time is add jalapeno to kick up the heat. This is close to my favorite restaurants. I will try with different types of canned tomoatoes as well.
