About this Cook
I am a middle school science teacher with 2 kids, ages 9 and 13, and a wonderful husband.
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook with fresh ingredients from our farmers market. One pot meals are the best.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My kids like to help with the cooking if there is time. During the summer the kids play a big role in cooking as I prefer to use fresh seasonal veggies.
My cooking triumphs
I just recently made a dish with chicken, quinoa, and an assortment of fresh veggies. My husband said it was my best meal yet!! The flavors really complimented each other. I was very proud of it because I didn't use any recipe.
My cooking tragedies
When my husband and I were first married I tried so hard to cook fresh meals like the ones his mother cooked. One night I tried a recipe that had a gorgonzola cheese sauce. It was awful!!! We still laugh about that anytime we see gorgonzola on a menu. I haven't tried anything like it since, even though I'm a much better chef now.

Easy Shepherd's Pie with Garlic Romano Potatoes
Excellent!! For the most part I followed the recipe. I had leftover mashed potatoes from another night so I just used those. I steamed fresh sliced carrots and sugar snap peas as the vegetable. Any vegetable would work well. These are what my kids prefer.

Quick Yeast Rolls
Look like cupcakes when you cook them in a cupcake tin but taste delicious. Very light.

Taco Seasoning I
Excellent but quite spicy. It makes the equivalent of a store bought packet. I will definitely use this again.
