About this Cook
I'm a happily married mother of 3 young boys (10, 6, and 1). I work in the restaurant industry. I absolutely LOVE that my mother passed the torch down to me for cooking Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner. Planning those big meals and putting them together is such a sense of accomplishment!
My favorite things to cook
Holiday meals and confections
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking with my husband over a glass of wine...dipping chunks of bread into tomato sauce to test mother making recipes "her own" by adding heavy cream and butter.
My cooking triumphs
Christmas and Thanksgiving dinner!
My cooking tragedies
I didn't listen to a recipe and I greased an angel food cake pan....that sucker fell like a soufle. It was awful! Looked like an intertube shaped brick!
Recipe Reviews 3 reviews
Cream of Pumpkin Soup
I followed the advise of the others who reviewed the recipe and added a lot more spice and brown sugar. It turned out great. Used it as my lunch on Thanksgiving. Perfect!

Miracle Green Bean Casserole
This recipe is fantastic! I followed it with the exception of using the fat-filled versions of the low-fat stated ingredients. My kids even ate it...and I swear they won't eat anything green. It's like they're allergic to the color. Will definitely make this again and again!
