About this Cook
I've been a professional body piercer for 8 years and have been at my current place of employment for 6 years. I've also been apprenticing to tattoo at the same shop and have been for the last 6 months. I recently got married this year and I love it!
My favorite things to cook
I love making pork carnitas for authentic tacos. I also love cooking for small dinner parties (8-12 people), usually roasts or crockpot dishes. And in the winter, I love baking cookies!

Simple Salisbury Steaks
I seasoned the ground beef with salt and pepper and I also doubled the amount of bread crumbs and my steaks didn't fall apart. I grated the onion with the large holes of a cheese grater, and it helped the onion meld with the meat better instead of having big chunks of chopped onion in the steaks, and it was faster than chopping to boot!

Sausage Spinach Alfredo Lasagna
Good, like another reviewer said, the jarred sauce in combination with the sausage was fairly salty. I did change the recipe based on others' reviews. I used turkey Italian sausage. I also sauteed sliced button and cremini mushrooms, minced garlic and mixed them with the sausage and alfredo sauce. Instead of extra jarred sauce, I used an equal amount of milk and 1 TB unsalted butter/flour roux. I also replaced the Cheddar with mozz and I used fresh spinach, wilted, squeezed of water and chopped, mixed in with the cheeses. I baked 35 min with the foil on, 10 min with the foil off to brown the cheese on top. Because of the saltiness, I think next time, I'll use 1/2 sausage 1/2 ground beef or turkey. Also, I'll add a little ground nutmeg to the alfredo...

Slow Cooker Roast Beef
My husband and I love this non-cream of mushroom soup based slow cooker roast! I buy 4lbs of roast and trim the fat and silver between the muscles (which the meat ends up being about 3lbs). I cover the roast with low sodium beef broth instead of water and used the onion/mushroom dry soup mix. After 8 hrs, I put in 1lb of cut up red potatoes, half a package of baby carrots, 1 8oz package of rinsed baby mushrooms, 1 large cut up onion, 1/2lb cut up parsnips. In 4 more hrs, the meat is tender and the veggies have soaked up the delicious broth. Thanks for the base of a wonderful, yet easy meal!
