About this Cook
I'm a single mother to the most adorable 5yr old son. I grew up and have lived in NJ all my life and wouldn't have it any other way. I love to cook and wish I could parlay it into a well paying career somehow.
My favorite things to cook
I love to try new recipes out and wish I had more time to do so.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Since I'm pressed for time during the week, I like to make a nice Sunday dinner and really put something nice on the table.
My cooking triumphs
I don't know that anything I've ever made has been extraordinary but I'm happy that I get rave reviews most of the time.
My cooking tragedies
Way back in the day I managed to mess up macaroni & cheese (the blue box variety).. I misread the measurement amounts for the milk and added WAY too much and ended up with mac & cheese soup. I'm also not much of a baker at all.. I try to steer clear of desserts, cookies and the like. They never turn out right but I think it's because I like to fidget with recipes ingredients which I understand is usually a no-no with baking.

Actually Delicious Turkey Burgers
Made these last night.. delicious and easy! Even my picky son who eats NOTHING ate 2 of these burgers. I did add a splash of both worcheshire (sp?) and soy sauce. Also instead of minced garlic and onion I used powdered versions since my son isn't a fan of "chunks". Also used dried parsley instead of fresh. Before pan frying, I lightly coated each burger with some additional bread crumb just to help hold together as well as for a bit of texture. Used a whole egg also rather than just egg white. They were super easy to make, juicy and delicious. Didn't even really need any condiments, they were that good. Will definitely make again.

Buffalo Chicken Wings II
Great alternative to higher fat, fried wings. I make mine exactly the same except I do not use butter on the baking sheet but instead use parchment or non stick foil to avoid the wings sticking. I also flour the wings and let them hang out in the fridge for at least an hour so the coating can adhere. I found baking at 400 (instead of 350) for approx 45-50 min, depending on the size of the wings and also flipping halfway through, they come out fairly crisp this way, very closed to the fried variety. Toss with sauce and good to go. You can also pop them back in the oven or under the broiler after saucing for extra crispiness and baked in sauce flavor.

Slow Cooker Beef Pot Roast
Not technically 5 stars YET but I just put everything in the crock pot and looks and smells HEAVENLY! Can't wait for dinner. Only changes I made was instead of chicken broth, used half beef broth/half red wine (all I had on hand). Also added a pinch of red pepper flakes in with the herbs since we like our pot roast spicy! Looks good!!!
