About this Cook
I'm a fulltime wife and mother who is getting more involved in cooking meals beyond "the basics" now that my kids are older and enjoy eating foods besides cheeseburgers and pizza :-) I enjoy being physically fit (I lift weights 5-6 times a week) and for the most part follow a healthy diet, but I also love to splurge calorie-wise on a terrific recipe.
My favorite things to cook
Barbeque! Anything with a white sauce, bonus points if that sauce includes wine.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making homemade ice cream every year for Christmas.
My cooking triumphs
My most recent (2008) Christmas dinner for the extended family. Each dish was a 5-star success!
My cooking tragedies
I can't whip up a meringue to save my life :-(

Best Ever Jalapeno Poppers
Very good, however time-consuming. They do freeze well however, so your best bet is to prep as many as possible at once and fry them up as needed. Would like to try this using beer in place of the milk next time.

White Cheese Chicken Lasagna
I used the amount of spinach the recipe called for (fresh leaves from my garden, stems removed) and it was a touch too much spinach for our tastes. The sauce, however...it was heavenly!

Strawberry Cobbler I
Fantastic! I agree with others that this is a little on the "juicy" side, but this might have to do with ripeness of one's strawberries as anything else. I used about 1/2 cup water plus 1/4 cup freshly-squeezed lemon juice, plus I added some zest from the lemons to the water/juice/sugar/cornstarch mix. without the lemon this probably would've been too sweet for our family. Crust came out wonderfully.
