My family
About this Cook
I have two daughters and a wonderful husband. I have always enjoyed cooking and baking. My father and grandparents are from Belgium where my grandfather was a pastry chef. My grandmother is (in my eyes) an excellent borderline gourmet cook making European dishes to die for! My mother's side of the family was more traditional American and I have wonderful recipes from them too! But, my favorite thing to do, besides feed my family, is ENTERTAIN! I love having people over for football games, home parties, holidays and birthdays. Any chance I get, I host!
My favorite things to cook
Anything Italian (even though my family is French). Italian food is just so flavorful and something usually everyone likes!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making Christmas cookies, of course!!!
My cooking triumphs
My very first Thanksgiving dinner I made at my first home. Everything was picture perfect and delicious.
My cooking tragedies
The first meatloaf I ever made. I remember we had my mother over and she and my (now ex) husband laughed and said we could save it for the first brick of a home we could someday build. I was crushed (and threw some frozen fish sticks in the oven) but now, after hundreds of meatloaves, it's the dish I'm always asked to make, especially by my kids, and they're the only opinions I care about!

Pumpkin Cheesecake II
This was EXCELLENT in taste and presentation! I made it for a Board of Ed. meeting at our school and they loved it. Can't wait to serve it at our Thanksgiving dinner this year.

Best Ever Meatloaf I
This recipe has been in my family for generations except we use a small can of tomato paste in lieu of the juice. I also throw in a dash of garlic powder for flavor. This is the best meatloaf, meatball, stuffed pepper, cabbage roll recipe, i use it for everything!

Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff I
This was excellent! Family loved it. I used Beefy Mushroom soup instead of golden, just a preference of mine, and since it was already 'beefy', I backed off the Worcestershire sauce. This is delicious!
