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!

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.

Great flavor. The only thing I did different, because of my own preference, was juiced a 1/2 of the lime vs the entire thing. I could not wait the hour! Used this as a topping for taco's that I made.
