About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Italian food and Mexican food mostly, just like the flavor of a good tomato sauce, or the spice of a good pepper. I'll cook anything though most times i find a recipe and then twist it around to make it my own.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Christmas Eve my family gets together and has Lasanga, I dont know why, My dad used to make it but one year I decided to make a pan also to sort of lighten the load for him. At the end of the evening all my lasanga was gone and 3/4 of his was left. Needless to say I've made all the lasanga ever since.
My cooking triumphs
Made a Chicago style deep dish pizza once from scratch once, it was awesome. Also my lasanga.
My cooking tragedies
Not very good at cooking scrambled eggs, I can't seem to get them the way I want them.

Taco Seasoning I
Definately a great recipe! More flavor than any of the pre-packaged mix. Kids complained it was spicy even after i cut down on the chili powder. Definately wil replace my taco mix from now on.

Pizza Soup II
Made some modifications to suit our family's tastes, added black olives, took out the mushrooms, added some green onions. Fried up the onions with the italian sausage along with about a clove of garlic. Had to add about another cup of water and a can of tomato paste due to the increased toppings, (i used a whole lb. of italian sausage). Threw it all in the crock pot for about 3 hours on high. My family was skepitcal when i said i was making pizza soup but once tasting it even the picky eaters loved it! Definately one for the recipe books.

Beef Tips
Good recipe, could be better. Way too salty should have followed others suggestions and cut down on the soy sauce and worchestershire sauce. Added some basil and thyme to the gravey to make it richer. Other than that it was great. Will make it again just cut the sauces in half.
