About this Cook
I love to cook for my family. I enjoy the challenge of feeding my family food that is processed-free and memorable. It makes it to the table if it's easy, fuss free and delicious! I work full time and have a long commute, but despite this we try and eat at home as often as possible. With the help of the great cooks I've found on, it's possible!
My favorite things to cook
I love making basic dishes from scratch like risotto, pasta, tortillas and broths. It tastes so good homemade and there's a sense of accomplishment to know that you can do it!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Hands down my favorite family cooking traditions are with my Dad. We will spend an entire day together making breakfast burritos that we can freeze and enjoy for months. The day after Thanksgiving we will usually make something new. (See cooking tradegies). :)
My cooking triumphs
Hmmm. Nothing comes to mind except for that amazing moment when you cook something and you know that it's a keeper! Oh, and your five year old says, "Mommy, what smells so good?"
My cooking tragedies
That would be Christmas Eve of 2011. My Dad and I attempted to make homemade ravioli. We ended up with three whole raviolis. Oh well, the backup pizza wasn't bad.

Greek Style Garlic Chicken Breast
I made this for a party and the chicken was dry. I thought the marinade would keep it moist. I did marinate overnight. I also followed the most helpful positive review edits, but just didn't turn out how i was expecting. I may make it again and try another method of cooking to keep it from being dry.

Best No-Bake Cheesecake
I made cheesecake stuffed strawberries using this recipe and it was perfect! I made a mistake and forgot to add the heavy cream. I realized this the next day. It was probably ok because I wasn't eating this on it's own, but stuffed into something. Good to know for next time should I not have heavy cream on hand.
