About this Cook
I have been married for almost 8 years. We have 3 beautiful children 2 girls 1 boy.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook just about anything...but I really love to eat Mexican and Italian food!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love trying to make dishes that my grandmother has made my whole life and has now given up because it is too much for a 94 year old!
My cooking triumphs
I have been able to make pasties, gnocchi, and lasagna.
My cooking tragedies
Only true tragedy is the baklava that I tried to make from a recipe I got off the internet when my husband was in turned out like soup and we were very disappointed as well as broke! That stuff was expensive to make!!!

Almond Wild Rice
The whole family loved this! I didn't have cranberries so I used currants and it turned out fantastic! Will definitely be making again.

Quinoa with Veggies
My husband and I both loved this dish. I was out of cumin so I added a little taco seasoning with the oregano and I used chicken broth instead of water but this was a delicious meal and I will definitely make it again and try adding some other veggies and or beans.
