About this Cook
I have four children and love to cook. It is a challenge to find foods that small children like, but I introduce them to a wide variety of foods and they like it.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook Itailian food, but I am really into grilling and BBQ-ing just about everything.
My favorite family cooking traditions
To make large family style dinners like a roast and yorkshire pudding.
My cooking triumphs
I have mastered pizza on the grill. My family loves it so much it is a once a week dish in my house. The rest of my family seems to drop by on pizza night.
My cooking tragedies
I tried to make a spicey stir fry that was so hot it was unedible. I also ruined many loaves of bread.

Chocolate Ganache
I was looking for a simple chocolate frosting recipe. It can't get much easier and tasty as this one was! I followed the directions exactly and it came out perfect!

Ultimate Irresistible Granola
This was my first time making granola and it turned out great! I had to make a lot of changes to adjust to what I had on hand. I added 6 cups of oats to make up for other ingredients I did not have. I used my organic extra virgin coconut oil and did not have a full cup so I added a 1/2 cup of organic peanut butter w/o sugar to the oil, 1 cup honey(for less sugar) What a nice peanut buttery taste! I added a 1 tsp. of sea salt to work better with the peanut butter flavor. I left out the shredded coconut, because my kids do not like it, I did not have sesame seeds so I added 1 cup oup of fresh ground flax seed. I left out the wheat germ because it is high in phytic acid not a good nutritonal food as many believe it is. Although I made a lot of changes, I love a recipe that can be tweeked for personal tastes and still turns out the way it should. Thank you for a great recipe!

Chicken Tortilla Soup I
I gave this recipe a 4 because it is very good but not OMG good. We will definitly make it again. I read a lot of reviews and did the following, I did not add extra water and used my own chicken stock for all the liqiud. I added 2 onions, 5 garlic, 2 tsp. cumin, extra chili powder and sour cream as a topper. I also cooked for 5hrs. covered and on low to blend flavors. I would highly recommend cooking longer. For those who are not hominy fans, it really took on the flavor of the soup and was good. Great recipe to add your own flare and personal touch. My husband said he would have liked it hotter, so I think I will add some crushed red pepper to spice it up.
