About this Cook
I love things that bring people together and that includes a meal around the table.
My favorite things to cook
I'm big on 30min or less for weeknight meals or "one pot dinners" as our family is quite busy. While I prefer fresh ingredients, ideally I like simplistic meals that fill the belly but not clog the arteries. ;) I'm big into ethnic cooking as well and being from Dutch/Italian descent that provides an interesting array of choices!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Over here, we ALL play an active role in meal making. Luckly I have excellent "taste testers" in my family. As long as I'm cooking, they are always looking for my latest and greatest! Special occasions are always fun as we tend to get an array of choices and our son gets right into the action with all of the table decorating!
My cooking triumphs
Quite a few. When the ask for seconds - success!....I rarely go home (or are left) with leftovers!
My cooking tragedies
I've had my fair share and learned a few lessons along the way.

World's Best Lasagna
The sauce is the prep but totally worth it as I have always received rave reviews on this dish! I easily doubled the recipe and saved half of the sauce for another time. Loved it - hands down.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts
Amazing for Kids! My son is 9 and made this his "favorite" dish....especially requests it above all others hand down! .... he even selects the sprouts at the store when shopping with me. Not only is it delicious, but SUPER simple to make - and healthy too!
