I absolutely love to make meatballs and spaghetti sauce from scratch...I think I could eat them every day!

My cooking tragedies
Anything I bake, really. I am really bad at baking...I like to add extra stuff...not good when you bake...great when you cook.

Shrimp Avocado Pasta Salad
This is a very good summer dinner. I followed another reviewers advice and sliced the avacado on top and it made a very pretty presentation. I also added a teaspoon of dijon mustard to give it some zip.

Philly Steak Salad
I made this dish for my hubby for his birthday for two reasons: 1-he is a huge fan of the big salad and 2-he loves philly cheesesteak sandwiches. Can I just tell you, we both LOVED this salad??? I was skeptical about putting fries on a salad..but it was great! I will totally make this salad again.
