About this Cook
I'm a stay-at-home mom of two young children and absolutely love to cook. Being named an Allrecipes Allstar has been a thrill and I absolutely love the community of home-cooks I've connected with at Allrecipes!
My favorite things to cook
Bread and ethnic foods. I tend to enjoy lighter fare.
My favorite family cooking traditions
When I was about 8 I asked if I could cook our family's Christmas dinner and my mom agreed to let me. I chose to serve lasagna and mashed potatoes with oatmeal cookies for dessert. The unconventional meal has become a sort of tradition for our family.
My cooking triumphs
:-) Any time I know that what I've made is better than I could get at a restaurant.
My cooking tragedies
I have failed repeatedly at making pita bread and English muffins. Regardless of how simple the recipes look, they never turn out correctly for me.

Cajun Chicken Pasta
As written we did not enjoy this, it was extremely bland. I upped the veggies, thickened the sauce, upped the seasonings, and in the end had a decent meal.

Three Cheese Tortellini with Traditional Sauce and Parmigiano Cheese
This is a nice, easy meal when you're pressed for time. My family really enjoyed it and it came together quickly with store-bought ingredients. I doctored the pasta sauce a little to suit my family's tastes and served with a green salad.
