Shannon on New Year's Eve
About this Cook
I am a mom to an 8-year-old competitive swimmer, and a high school counselor to 500 9th and 10th graders.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook things that other people enjoy, but it has to be healthy. It is a challenge to have healthy meals for my daughter, because she is a picky eater at times.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I used to cook Thanksgiving dinner with my grandmother every year. It was where I learned how to cook, and I wouldn't trade it for all the culinary institutes in the world. French Toast with Red Plum Jelly on Christmas Eve before Midnight Mass.
My cooking triumphs
Tea Finger Sandwiches. Mushroom and Parmesan Risotto. Mashed Potatoes.
My cooking tragedies
Pie Crust. Most desserts.

Thai Pork with Peanut Sauce
I made this for dinner tonight to use up some pork chops. I cut the bone out, made medallions, and fried them substituting garlic for the red pepper, and gluten-free flour for the all-purpose flour. The peanut sauce was great, and I used light coconut milk to save a few calories. Served over brown rice, with corn and green peas. Great gluten-free dinner! My 8-year-old wasn't a big fan of this.
