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!

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!

Mom's Mashed Potato Salad
Very good texture and overall flavor. Could have used some extra seasoning.
