I was raised on Ore-Ida potatoes.  I can remember bags of Ore Ida potatoes being in our freezer from a very young age.  My husband and I use Ore Ida's hash browns as a side dish for eggs and in breakfast burritos.  But after my daughter declared that she didn't like frozen french fries when… MORE

I have to admit that I haven't always been a huge fan of sausage.  To me, sausage was meant for serving next to eggs at the breakfast table and that was it.  Over the years, I have tried using sausage more and more but it never really clicked...that is until I started cooking with… MORE

Oh my!  These were so good!!  My husband said that these are the best cookies I've ever made.  I followed the recipe except I omitted the cloves and doubled the cinnamon.  I also soaked the raisins in water, then drained, prior to baking to prevent the raisins from burning.  This is… MORE

I have to admit that I was a little skeptical about the combination of beef, sweet potatoes and taco seasoning, but they actually worked very well together. My 2 year old loved it and my 8 year old daughter, who is in a "I hate potatoes" phase, at the sweet potatoes because I told her they… MORE

Served this at a pot luck and everyone loved this dip! It was so easy to prepare which was a bonus.  The only complaint (if you can call it that) was from one person who said it was bit too spicy, but then admitted that they normally don't eat spicy food. I followed the recipe exactly and… MORE

About Me
I have a beautiful 8 year old daughter, an 11 year old stepson and a 2 year old son. My husband has been in the United States Air Force for over 15 years, and I am a proud military wife!! My husband is by the far the best cook I know (just don't tell my mother I said that). His recipes are to die for but he won't share the recipes, even with me! I was born and raised in Arizona but my parents are both from NY originally - Queens and Brooklyn - and I spent a lot of time in NY growing up. My mother was raised in a Jewish/Italian neighborhood and learned how to cook great Italian dishes from people who came from the old country. She passed a lot of those lessons down to me. I still go back to NY whenever I can. My brother lives in NJ now and whenever I visit, I eat my way through town. There is nothing like pizza, Chinese food and baked goods from the east coast!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook just about everything! I have the "staple" recipes that are made on a regular basis, like baked ziti, meatloaf, casseroles, etc., but I get a huge kick out of trying new recipes. I am on Allrecipes several times a day (my husband says I'm an addict!) and you can usually catch me in the cookbook aisle of the bookstore. I love to experiment and see which recipes are "approved" by my husband and kids. :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
My love of cooking comes from my mother. When I was young, my mother used to throw big dinner parties and would cook everything herself. I remember being in the kitchen with her and helping her prepare...even if it was just mixing something it was fun for me. My mother and I use any holiday as an excuse to cook. Our two favorites are of course Thanksgiving and Christmas. Our menu consists of: Turkey, Ham, Stuffing, Mashed Potatoes, Candied Yams, Green Bean Casserole, Corn Tomolita from Chevy's (a sweet corn side dish), cheesecake and 7-up cake. Yummy!
My cooking triumphs
Whenever I try something new and I get smiles and empty plates from my husband and the kids!
My cooking tragedies
I once tried to make my mother a sponge cake when I was 11. Let's just say that it more closely resembled a kitchen sponge than a cake!
