About this Cook
Married, 2 childen, one daughter, one son, one doggie(now an angel in heaven) 2/8/10.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook, it is like therapy to me. Very relaxing.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I don't really have any family cooking traditions of my own, just with my family (parents). Which I still participate in every year. I wish my children would take an interest in cooking, I would love to teach them. Occasionally my son will take over for the night, but it is always something simple. Hey, I'll take what I can get.
My cooking triumphs
Anything that my DH says that I am the Queen of....(blueberry pie, lasagna, etc.)
My cooking tragedies
Well, I guess my biggest problem is, I seem to wind up undercooking some cuts of meat....I know, it's fixable, and I think it's done enough, but, sadly no. We sometimes wind up finishing things in the microwave.

Jacolyn's Herbed Vinaigrette
i just made this...and i only used 3/4 c oil and that's all i can taste. i will let this sit overnight and edit again if i change my mind on it. as written right now, too oily for me.

Little Lamb Meatballs in a Spicy Eggplant Tomato Sauce
this was very, very good. i found a bag of cubed eggplant, and ground lamb in the freezer, and had some leftover homemade tomato sauce, so this really fit the bill! served with rice pilaf. thanks chef john!

Korean Fried Chicken Sauce
very good with the Korean fried chicken. i thought it was going to be too spicy for the sensitive people at the table, but it was well received by all.
