About this Cook
After nearly 13 years as an Allrecipes member, I am honored and astonished to be chosen as a 2013 member of the ALLRECIPES ALLSTAR BRAND AMBASSADOR program! Now that we're retired, I enjoy cooking so much more than before. No more hurry-up dinners! I just love meals that take all afternoon to simmer away....especially in the colder months. They make the house smell great, and just give me a warm, fuzzy feeling.
My favorite things to cook
Most things Italian, definitely. I could seriously eat pasta every day! But, my meat-loving husband doesn't share that particular passion. We also like Mexican food. Love soups and casseroles, too!
My cooking triumphs
This mistake turned into a fantastic triumph. As a just-married cook, I decided to have a bunch of neighbors over for a roasted turkey, full-out dinner. I stuffed the bird, got it into the roasting pan, and let it go. When it came time to baste it, it just didn't look right. I could NOT figure out what was wrong with it. Finally got out my cookbook looking for a picture, and realized the bird was in the pan upside down. I successfully got it turned over, but, man oh man, that was the most moist turkey breast ever!!! Guess how I make turkey now? :-)
My cooking tragedies
Well, I was making sausage ball appetizers for my then-husband's 40th birthday party. Those things are so hard to mix, I ended up mixing by hand. I always used to wear fake nails. Okokok, you guessed it. I was almost through with the rolling, and discovered my pinkie nail was missing! Had to go through each and every one until I found it to throw it away. Can you imagine someone chomping down on THAT?

Cheese Tortellini Soup and Sausage
My husband and I thought this was really very tasty and very satisfying on a cold winter night. Easy to make, too. The only change I'd make, and that's just because there are only two of us, is that I'd cook the tortellini separately and add it directly to the bowls. By the time I put the leftovers away, the remaining pasta had soaked up all of the broth. I used mild Italian sausage in this, and we both really enjoyed our dinner.

Honey Maid Holiday Cheesecake Presents
This recipe needed a little extra "something". Maybe ground nuts and cinnamon in the crust. They were good and fun to decorate. I baked mine in a pan with nonstick foil overlapping the sides so I could just lift the whole thing out. Worked great. Had no trouble getting nice, clean cuts once these were refrigerated, then used my pizza cutter for the squares. Very neat edges. Took them to my sister's for Christmas, and they were well received.

No Knead Beer Bread
Wow! Loved this bread! It's dense and so chewy inside with a wonderful crust outside. No knead? That's for me! Very, very easy recipe and turned out terrific. Last night I made grilled ham, cheese and green onion sandwiches with it and it took that simple sandwich over the top. Thanks for a great recipe!!
