About this Cook
I am a mother of three very hungry teenage boys! They are the highlight of my life! I am a Mortgage Closer during the day and a tired mommy at night.
My favorite things to cook
Anything fast and easy that all three of my boys will actually eat.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My dad is Italian so I grew with lots of pasta! I can't get enough. My family now loves, pasta, Mexican and anything Asian. We also try to tweak every recipe to make it lower fat. There are so many things you can do to make it taste good and be healthier.
My cooking triumphs
When my kids eat every bit of it...I consider that a triumph!
My cooking tragedies
Pretty much everything I try! Ha ha! Eventually I figure it out though. I try to read the reviews on each Allrecipe recipe, to get tips on how to do it correctly the first time.

Easy Eggplant Pita
I am not a fan of veggies...however my husband and two of my children are. They loved this recipe. Hubby suggested maybe next time to put it in a tortilla. Also those who did not like ranch used ff italian dressing and thought that was tasty. Thanks for sharing!

Taco Beef and Pasta
Actually this was pretty good. My whole family loved it. I didn't have rotini pasta so I used penne and they ate it up. Thanks for sharing!

Healthy Banana Cookies
I really liked these! My kids haven't tried them yet, but I added chocolate chips in half the batch for them to eat. Otherwise I left out the dates, added more oats, substituted the oil for applesauce and added an apple. Very yummy!!
