About this Cook
I've lived in the cooking shadows of my mom and brother- they cook very well, so I never thought I could. I could make killer dips, people would ask for them (my Spinach Dip is legendary!) but I thought that would be the extent of it. Until I met my fiance! I LOVE cooking for him, and he LOVES my food- thinks I cook better than my mom and brother... (sshhhh :) )
My favorite things to cook
Oh gosh, where to start... I've been on a salad kick lately- homemade dressings, really elaborate salads. I LOVE Southern and Italian Cuisine, homemade soups... I love cooking anything from scratch.
My cooking tragedies
When I first started trying to cook on my own, YEARS ago, I didn't realize that glass baking dished could not go in the broiler. I had 4 shark steaks in the oven, and the entire dish EXPLODED. That was fun.

Baked Chicken and Brie
This was so surprisingly elegant for how simple it was to make. I made this for a dinner party and it got rave reviews! I used Italian Seasoning instead of only Oregano, and when I put the Brie on the chicken, I placed a large fresh basil leaf under each piece. DELICIOUS! Great presentation too!

Italian Style Pork Chops
I got this recipe MAYBE 2 weeks ago, and I can't even count how many times we've eaten it so far!! A definite staple in my house now. I tweak EVERY recipe I've ever come across to my family's taste, but the only thing I did to this one was pour the leftover melted butter in the pan between all of the chops. YUMMMM!

Roasted Chicken with Risotto and Caramelized Onions
This dish was delish!! My friend and I made it for a small dinner party, and everyone liked it. I used red wine vinegar instead of balsamic vinegar for the onions- also added chopped garlic to the onion mixture. I did not use a roasted chicken- I chopped up 3 chicken breasts and sauteed in olive oil with garlic, rosemary and freshly ground pepper. I also added cooked shrimp to the chicken skillet just before the chicken was done. Also added fresh chopped basil to the risotto mixture just before it was done. YUMMMMMM.
