About this Cook
married with three children, one stepchild, & in the process of adopting my grandchild. (Also work full time outside the home)
My favorite things to cook
all things italian and mexican: SPICY!!!! I love to create and tweak recipes I find to add my own flair.
My favorite family cooking traditions
every Christmas, we make "maids of honor": never could find the recipe though:it was something my mother made as I grew up. I recalled the ingredients and kept up the tradition.
My cooking triumphs
after my first marriage ended, I had a very tight budget to feed three growing children: I learned to create inexpensive "concoctions" that to this day have become much asked for meals.
My cooking tragedies
A young wife with infant twins, lack of sleep and just learning how to cook, it the first time I made Chicken Divan. An easy recipe gone horribly wrong. Thankfully hubbie choked it down and never said a word. Everytime I make it now, I have to chuckle.

Hearty Turkey Soup with Parsley Dumplings
Loved the recipe.I made it in a crock pot & turned out great.My hubby is not open to trying new foods so I didn't tell him it had rutabaga until he finished!His reply, make this again! The fragrance while cooking was a bit on the strong side but the end result was worth it!

Southwest Chicken
I too used northern bean instead of the black beans,added the extra spices and toppped with a sprinkle of Mexican cheese. Easy, delicious and definitely a "make again" recipe!
