About this Cook
I live in central PA. I've been in the kitchen since I was about 13, and grew up working in restaurants - everything from dishwasher & bus girl, to server, cashier, line cook and chef! Mostly, I love to cook for my family and friends - there's nothing quite like hearing how much they love your food!
My favorite things to cook
Almost anything in the slowcooker, but especially pizza chili! I also love wings, strombolis, and trying new marinades and sauces.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We don't have a lot of family cooking traditions, just that I do Thanksgiving dinner!
My cooking triumphs
I don't know that I've done anything particularly triumphant - but I love to feed people by the dozen and can usually pull it off.
My cooking tragedies
Banana bread! I don't care what recipe I use, it's never moist enough or with enough banana flavor - still looking for that perfect recipe.

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce
I enjoyed this recipe. I used about 1.5 c milk and 1/2 c heavy cream because I wanted to use it up. I also used about 8 ounces grated parmesan - I used the 2nd smallest size on my multi-size cheese grater. When adding the liquid, I added about 1/4 c at a time, whisking constantly. I also added the parmesan by pinches, whisking constantly. It came out with a smooth, enjoyable texture that way. Next time, I might add more garlic and more pepper. What I liked most about this sauce is that, unlike almost all other alfredo sauces that seem to become chunky and thick before I'm done trying to eat, this stayed smooth in consistency until the last bite. Yum!

Cinnamon Griddle Cakes
My family really enjoyed these - a light, slightly crispy pancake with an interesting sauce. They were a welcome change from traditional pancakes, tasty but not too heavy.

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
YUM! My husband, who, admittedly, probably never met a cookie he didn't like absolutely RAVED about these. They are so moist, tender and delicious. The oatmeal lends a great texture and interest to a beloved flavor. Thank you! ADDENDUM 3/10/14: My son, who is pretty much an anti-connoisseur when it comes to foods (i.e., thinks "Oreos" are the best cookies on the planet) told me "These cookies are the BEST! Even better than OREOS!"
