About this Cook
I'm a new mom and also work part-time. My husband has definitely helped improve my cooking and baking abilities since we've been married! I love trying new recipes and making changes to old recipes.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake, I love when my home smells liked freshly baked cookies! I love to make Giada's lasagna rolls(one of my husbands favs), my MIL's chickenetti and pot pie, and my mom's poppyseed chicken and porkchops and rice.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother, sister and I get together to bake Christmas cookies the Saturday after Thanksgiving every year. I love listening to Christmas music and sharing different cookie recipes and our classics to!
My cooking triumphs
The first time I made my MIL's chicken pot pie was a HUGE triumph for me! It took all day to make the noodles and get it to the right consistency but my husband loved it!
My cooking tragedies
I made a beef and spinach cassarole that was horrible!!! I have a delicious recipe for broiled tilapia and 1 time I burnt it so bad on the outside and it wasn't even cooked the whole way through! OOps!

Broccoli Cheese Soup V
Made a few changes-simmered cauliflower and broccoli in chicken broth for soup. Also, I used fresh not frozen. I used a small loaf of velveeta, which I don't think is 1 1/2 lbs. And I added black pepper and nutmeg to the flour mixture instead of at the end. The whole family loved! My 3 yr old had 2 big bowls! I think next time I might add chopped carrots to it to add even more veggies!

Best Beef Enchiladas
These were delish! I didn't really change anything, other than poured leftover enchilada sauce over the top after serving(kiddos were eating them too so I had to watch the spice). I think this was the first time my husband didn't request hot sauce to put on them to!!!
