Pork (chops) with Creamy Herb Sauce
About this Cook
I am married to my husband of almost 10 years and we have an almost 9 year old. I love to sing, and love to cook, so I usually sing while I am cooking! We live in OMG IT RAINS ALL THE TIME!!!! *sarcasm* Seattle and live a pretty normal lifestyle. I love to eat out at new and exciting places, but I am learning to love discovering new recipes to try out on my own. My son has Asperger's syndrome, so along with that comes a whole new level of pickiness when it comes to eating. He eats mainly "white" foods, which can severely limit what I can make for him. He is slowly coming around though :)
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake. But I find that as long as I take my time and enjoy myself while I cook or bake, it becomes my favorite thing to do.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Polska Kielbasa, cheesecake, apple pie.
My cooking triumphs
I recently baked successfully with yeast, just the other day. I am so friggin proud my myself! I was so terrified before that it wouldn't work out.
My cooking tragedies
Have fun, enjoy yourself, and worry about the mess later!

Crab Alfredo
This was very, very flavorful. I followed the directions almost to the T, except I mixed the cooked noodles into the sauce. This caused the sauce to "clump" together with the noodles, making it seem much more thick than it really was. In the future, I will merely put the sauce on top of the noodles. Live and Learn!

Garlic Chicken with Orzo Noodles
This was pretty tasty. I boiled the orzo in chicken broth and added an oniteon, sauteed. The reason I only gave this 4 stars is because we thought it could use more spice and salt. With a few tweaks, We believe it will be amazing! Will be making again!
