About this Cook
I was a professional microwaver until I got married in 1999. Once I got married, I decided it was time to learn how to make real meals and this site really helped me in terms of learning how to cook and bake and also discovering that I really enjoyed it. I'm eternally grateful to the Allrecipes community for helping me to learn how to cook and bake wonderful food from scratch and for all the great recipes and tips I've gotten from this site.
My favorite things to cook
Italian food, gooey desserts, salads.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Getting together in the kitchen as a family to roll meatballs and make homemade marinara sauce for the holidays. Baking cookies and exchanging them for Christmas.
My cooking triumphs
I've gotten lots of compliments on my cooking and baking from my parents and in-laws-that says it all!
My cooking tragedies
I once put something in the oven that was leaking and it created so much smoke, the automatic fire alarm went off and the fire department showed up at my house!

Rosemary Potatoes with Roasted Heads of Garlic
Awesome! Although, mine took about an hour and still could have used a little more time to fully roast up crispy, but delicious. The garlic gets nice and smooth and sweet. I halved this recipe for two of us and it was still more than enough. For easy cleanup, I would recommend using a disposable foil pan.

Lo Mein Noodles
These were awesome! My husband loved them. You can add veggies as you wish to these noodles. I didn't have any green onions the night I made these, so I tossed in three cloves of minced garlic to add flavor. Delicious!

Grilled Salmon with Bacon and Corn Relish
Delicious! The combination of sweet corn and salty bacon really complemented the salmon nicely.
