About this Cook
I am married and have 4 wonderful children ages 16, 13, 7, and 2. They keep me hopping! I also somehow manage to work a full time job.
My favorite things to cook
I love Italian dishes like Chicken Marsala, Spinach Lasagna, and anything else with pasta and lots of garlic. I love to try new dishes and experiment with ways to make things healthier. Baking is one of my favorite things to do, especially on rainy days. There's nothing better than spending a rainy day in the kitchen, baking all kinds of yummy treats for my family.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother died when I was only 22. I was newly married and felt so alone. I had to teach myself how to cook for the most part. My mother-in-law was an influence. It has taken me a lot of trial and error, but has been lots of fun along the way.

Chicken Dijon
This recipe was a good base. It just seems to be lacking something. I did add the provolone prior to adding the sauce. I sauteed the chicken with a garlic pepper seasoning and then added minced garlic before the flour. Everyone liked the finished product. I do believe I will use stone ground mustard next time.

Mouse's Macaroni and Cheese
This mac and cheese was very creamy and delicious. The only thing I would do different next time is decrease the pepper to 1/2 tsp. I thought the cheese to pasta ratio was perfect. My kids devoured this in no time.

These are incredibly good! I was a little worried because of the extra flour. I tested one in the oven first and turned out so yummy! Thanks for sharing!
