About this Cook
I grew up with a fantastic cook for a mother, but never bothered to pay much attention. During my four years at college I called my mom every time I made rice to get the "recipe" because I never bothered to memorize it. Once I got married I finally found my passion in cooking!
My favorite things to cook
pies, bread, anything new
My favorite family cooking traditions
We have family dinner one Sunday a month, and my sisters, my mom, and I love to just hang out in the kitchen and chat and cook for hours!
My cooking triumphs
When I finally mastered the perfect pie crust!
My cooking tragedies
The first night in our new apartment after we got home from our honeymoon I tried to make my husband spaghetti. I had noodles and a jar of Ragu and figured it couldn't get much easier than that. That is until I burned the noodles so badly that they stuck and left permanent black noodle marks on my pan! Don't ask how you do that, its a pretty complicated process!

Amazingly Good Eggnog
My sister and I have made this for years and loved it, but always hated how you had cinnamon dregs at the bottom. This year I decided to try using two cinnamon sticks instead - and it was brilliant! A much more even flavor throughout, and no dregs. USE CINNAMON STICKS! ps. As a side note, I also occasionally make this lactose free since my husband can't drink the regular stuff. Just replace the milk and the light cream with whole milk Lactaid. (You'll want to use only whole to maintain the thickness.) It turns out fabulously.

Cheese Fondue
I'm pregnant and was craving fondue like crazy. I've had this recipe in the past, and loved it, so I thought I'd try it out. I used apple juice instead of wine and used only swiss (I didn't have gruyere), and it still hit the spot! Not exactly the same, but still delish!

Restaurant-Style Zuppa Toscana
My three, four and a half, and six year old all gave this a big thumbs up. They didn't *love* the kale, but then again, they don't really *love* anything green, and they ate it without complaining. My husband and I were definitely pleased. It's a keeper!
