About this Cook
I am a stay at home mom who runs a full-time business. I am over-educated and underpaid, and grateful. I have a darling little boy, and a pretty kickin' husband. And I love to make things, so cooking is a natural activity for me.
My favorite things to cook
Italian food. Anything with a homemade gravy and noodles is A-ok in my book. I also have been trying to get a feel for asian food.
My favorite family cooking traditions
~ Kielbasa and saurkraut on Christmas (it looks and smells terrible, but is so yummy) ~ Grilled crab legs on birthdays (the one thing my husband can claim as his own... and although it really isn't cooking, he can cook it any day for me ;) ~ Trying to figure out my mom's bread recipe (she is he greatest bread baker ever, and after at least 30 attempts, I still am not worthy). ~ Taking an easy quick recipe and turning it into a 3 hour long experience. I think there is such community in the kitchen, and I hate just getting in and getting out... why not stay awhile and enjoy a glass of wine? Food should be enjoyed, and I think the prep part is one of the most enjoyable.
My cooking triumphs
My greatest triumph in the kitchen was whipping up the world's best cheesecake recipe, even though I had never tried one before.

Celery Stuffing
Perfection. Plain and simple. I would NEVER use another recipe. I add Italian Sausage (a family tradition) but it is perfect without. Crispy on the outside, soft and chewy in the middle. Yum-o-rific!

Cranberry Sauce
I've made this PERFECT cranberry sauce for two holiday seasons. ok... um.. YUM, YUM, YUM! Just like mom makes... but better :) A little orange zest and a dash of cinnamon. I'll pass on the dried out turkey; just give me seconds of this!

Firecracker Grilled Alaska Salmon
Super yummy! Made with fresh ginger and subbed Apricot preserves for brown sugar. Marinated for 2 hours and baked (with marinade) at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Ended up with perfectly cooked salmon with a fabulous glaze. Super easy. Super quick. Super duper!
