About this Cook
I am a stay at home mother of 4. I've always wanted a big family, with lots of kids that come home for Sunday suppers with all their luandry. I'm also a very proud Marine wife of 10 years. I've been all over the place. We have lived in CA, then we moved to NC. Boy was that a drive! And now we are in Vina Del Mar, Chile. It is a big culture shock. Most of my favorite recipes I can not make over here. I am a simple girl who loves to please people through the food I cook.
My favorite things to cook
I love southern food or comfort food, same thing I guess. I also enjoy baking. But I'd have to say my favorite things to cook are really anything my hubby and kids will love.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love to be in the kitchen with my kids. Passing on what I know so they won't be afraid to cook for themselves. Holidays are a special tradition. Having family around me and enjoying what I make is special to me.
My cooking triumphs
My husband is a bit of a picky eater, so anything that gets his approval is a triumph for me.
My cooking tragedies
I would have to say the first time I tried to make manicotti, which was in the begining of my hobby. I forgot to sauce the bottom of the pan before I layed down the manicotti and when I tried to serve it up it was stuck to the pan and somewhat burned. My husband felt sorry for me and tried to eat it anyway...awe.

Manicotti Alla Romana
Made this to exact specifications except for two things...i didnt have half and half so i figured heavy whipping cream wouldnt hurt, I also forgot to add the chicken bouillon into the butter/four mixture so i added it into the whipping cream. My family didnt complain so I am taking that as a good sign. I think next time I will add mozzarella cheese to the meat mixture and on top of the sauce. Its a good thing if I plan to make it again! :)
