About this Cook
I love cooking, eating healthy, yoga, makeup, trying new things, hiking, traveling, visiting new places.
My favorite things to cook
Roasting vegetables, making homemade soups, making pasta and meatballs with homemade sauce in wintertime, anything with fresh herbs and fresh veggies from the garden. Making quick, healthy, fresh dinners during the work week too.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making my grandma's stuffing at Thanksgiving with rice, ground beef, etc. (non-traditional stuffing but a traditional staple in my family).
My cooking triumphs
Following recipes and putting my own twist on them to add fresh ingredients whenever possible.
My cooking tragedies
I wanted to make "lemon pepper" chicken breasts in the oven. Instead of sprinkling the dried lemon pepper seasoning I coated the chicken like how you would make chicken cutlets with lemon pepper seasoning. My husband and I tasted it and holy LEMON FACE!!!! It was way tooooo tart. I don't know what I was thinking!? We still joke about it to this day! I've never used that seasoning since.

Ricotta Stuffed Zucchini
This was so easy to prepare and cook. I used 5 small zucchini. I added 5 cloves of garlic minced and 1 green pepper diced. I used fresh basil instead of dried and fat free ricotta instead of skim because that's what I had in the fridge. Next time I will use the skim ricotta. I also sprayed the zucchini before stuffing a little with Pam (I didn't want to use olive oil because with all the cheese I didn't want it to be too greasy). Mine cooked at 450 for 30 minutes because after 20 minutes they still were not browned. My husband thought this tasted like white pizza with fresh garlic and broccoli. What a great healthy alternative! I will be making this again especially when we have people over to eat. Delicious, healthy and flavorful!!!!
