Have you ever read those reviews here on AllRecipes that go something like, "Well, I didn't have any barbeque sauce, so I used ketchup, and I didn't have any cheddar cheese, so I used cheese whiz, and I'm trying to cut out fat, so I used fake turkey crumbles instead of ground beef...and by the… MORE

I can't eat pork chops without thinking about poor Peter Brady, but Alice had the right idea: pork chops and applesauce are natural companions.  I feel cheated somehow if I eat chops without some applesauce right along side it.  So when I picked up some pork chops on sale the other… MORE

About Me
My mom was a "from scratch" cook - it wasn't until I moved out of the house that I realized that you could actually buy lasagna noodles! Fresh, simple meals were a staple in our house, and I try to carry that forward.
My favorite things to cook
I love trying new things, so a new recipe is my favorite thing to cook. My kids have learned to be "adventurous eaters", so I know they'll at least taste everything I try, even if they don't like it much!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Just like most families, every holiday seems to have developed its own special food tradition - chili on Halloween, Thanksgiving dinner at the beach, fanciful cakes for birthdays.
My cooking triumphs
I've cooked an entire Thanksgiving dinner at the beach, with just a small grill and a two burner camp stove!
My cooking tragedies
I was making dinner for some foodie friends once, and they poured me some wine while I was cooking. Bad idea! I was steaming some sweet potatoes and wasn't paying attention - there wasn't enough water and the pan scorched!
