About this Cook
I am a self taught cook. My mom never cooked so I grew up knowing little to nothing about cooking. It is now a hobby of mine.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook just about anything. I am not afraid to try new receipes and look forward to new challenges.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Italian is what my family will request me to cook, the most.
My cooking tragedies
My very first experience with cooking was on a gas stove and I did not reliaze that the flame needs to be adjustted based on what you are cooking. I cranked up the flame and proceeded to burn bacon to a crisp!

Red Skinned Potato Salad
This is delicious as written but I always have to change based on my own preference. My modificaiton is use green onions or purple onion, add a couple of tablespoons of Dijon mustard and instead of celery I cut up baby dill pickles. Also, I think it is important to make this and blend while the potato and eggs are still warm, then chill it once it is assemble. IMO, all the flavors blend better when warm verse chilled and then mixed.

Sarah's Rice Pilaf
Very easy and tasty. Like that it is an option that is lower is sodium without compromising flavor. If you can't find orzo you can use angel hair, linguini, ect and break into small pieces. I had to do this while out of town because the local store just wasn't as good as mine when it can to great products.

Slow Cooker Beef Pot Roast
I am sure this is a five star as is. However, I did make some modification. I used 2 cups low sodium beef broth and a cup of red wine instead of the chicken broth. I used a a boneless roast. It came out amazing! It takes just a little more effort than some recipes but so worth it.
