About this Cook
I'm currently a stay at home mom with two daughters and a son. I am going to school to complete my Bachelors in English Literature My hobbies are travel, photography, ghost hunting, and home canning.
My favorite things to cook
I love to can the fresh produce that I can get from local markets in my area. My favorite foods to can so far has to be Strawberries, peaches, and apples!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Home made apple butter, strawberry jam, and sticky gooey yummy cakes, pies and pastries!!
My cooking triumphs
Making my first Pasta Carbonara from scratch and absolutely hitting the cream/egg combo just right. Thank goodness too, we had a TON of company for that experiment! Home made Sushi has been a big hit in the house as well.
My cooking tragedies
Trying to can peaches that wouldn't cooperate! They turned to mush and I had to throw out nearly 4 pounds of peach mush in the end. It wasn't even decent enough for jam or jelly!

Italian Breaded Pork Chops
This is by far the best pork chop recipe my family and I have eaten. Having lived in Italy for 9 years, this was the closest we have come to being able to recreate the recipe we ate at Italian friends' and neighbors' houses. Thank you!!

I make this at least 1-2 per month and my family LOVES it! I tend to double the recipe though, so I have enough to use as a basting sauce throughout the cooking process! Wonderful and VERY tasty!
