About this Cook
Mom of 3,6 and 15 year olds, 1 very picky eater! Married 15 years. From a Big Fat Greek Family, it's in my blood to cook and feed everybody!
My favorite things to cook
Comfort, Soul, Southwest, Mexican, Greek, Italian and Asian Dishes. I prefer to cook Vegan and/or Vegetarian dishes as my first choice. Love surprising the family with good meals they enjoy without meat.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Holiday! My Mother saying, after cooking a huge meal, that she is never doing it again, but always does.
My cooking triumphs
I am known for throwing the best parties. I give it my all and offer a variety of food and drinks to please everyone. After each party seems I am planning another, so always planning, prepping and partying. Thank Goodness for AR Pro features, help me a lot!
My cooking tragedies
Made a punch bowl of Sangria's which everyone loved, but I realized later I had forgotten the Ginger Ale. Used a new 3 burner buffet system and didn't turn it up high enough, 3 of my apps were cold, no one said a thing so I didn't realize it til they were almost gone. Cold meatballs yuk, but they all got eaten!

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes
Would give a 5 star rating but changed the onions, left them out and used French Fried Onions on top instead. A great base recipe to experiment with!

Absolutely Fabulous Greek/House Dressing
Would give 5 stars if I didn't change it a little, First I scale it down to 12 servings and use about 1/2 cup lemon juice instead of vinegar, use it to your taste, we love lemons and put it on everything in our house. I also add a tsp. of sugar. Again add slowly to your taste if your going to try it. Leave out the oregano. Then of course you have to get some good crusty bread to dip in any left over dressing in your bowl!
