About this Cook
Work full-time (financial advisor), married 28 years, 2 kids 15,18. Absolutley love to cook. Not into desserts. Specialize in Italian entrees and home cooked meals-chicken and dumplings, meat loaf, etc.
My favorite things to cook
Pasta, without a doubt.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas Eve-my family comes over and we have an elegant sit down dinner. We have prime rib, twice baked potatoes and a beautiful tossed salad. Happy hour is before dinner with a nice light appetizer and drinks. The last couple of years we have been fortunate in that Santa makes a personal visit to our home during happy hour. He comes in with a gift for each child...smoking a pipe and bringing in the good cheer. After dinner we go into the living room, kids play a few Christmas songs on the piano and then we open gifts. Truly magical.
My cooking triumphs
Having my mother believe that I am an exceptional cook.
My cooking tragedies
The only tragedy with cooking comes when I don't get to do it enough!

Tonya's Terrific Sloppy Joes
Made this today for tomorrow's dinner. I couldn't stop tasting it is so good. I increased the sauce by 1/4 as it will soak up a lot overnight, and the reviewers already have said there is no extra sauce.

Grilled Lemon Herb Pork Chops
Used bone-in chops from Trader Joes. So incredibly simple and so incredibly tasty! Made as written, altered grill time based upon size of chops.
