About this Cook
I am getting married in one month and have been living with my fiance for over 3 years! When we first started living together we would eat out almost every night because I hated cooking. I kept trying though, and eventually because of this website started getting better and better! It's turned into a hobby of mine and I love trying new things.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy cooking as healthy as possible. I try to turn every recipe into a healthier version. I typically turn to 30 minute meals such as baked chicken, tilapia, salmon or veal! During the holiday season you can find me trying new cookie recipes and trying to out do the year before.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Mom's traditions while I was growing up have shaped my taste buds for years to come. She never used a ton of seasoning and went by the saying less is more. We frequently had cous cous with every main meal! My mother makes the best beef brisket for the Jewish holidays- no one elses come close! She also might possibly make the best oatmeal raisin cookies that was ever created.
My cooking triumphs
I tried the peanut butter cup cookies on this site a few years ago at Christmas time and they were such a hit my family and friends still talk about them! They are requested every year. I also just put together a veal milanese recipe which is pretty good.
My cooking tragedies
I once made a baked veal dish COVERED in rosemary. The veal dried up instantly, and all of the rosemary caked on the veal. My fiance actually ATE it but later told me it was the worst thing he ever tasted and please dont ever touch rosemary again. I can't believe he ate it, what a good guy!

Stuffed Green Peppers I
This has been my go-to stuffed pepper recipe for about a year now. I always make the rice seperate though..the few times I tried making the rice with the other mixture, it never made the rice correctly, they were crunchy and took forever to cook. Making it seperately had helped a lot. I also use red peppers, as I like the taste better than green.

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies
Being these are my secret weapon every year around christmas time I had to give this a 5. I discovered this recipe about 4 yrs ago on this site and I always get such amazing reviews from them, I usually add either dark chocolate hershey kisses on top (instead of PB Cups) or Hershey PB choc kisses (not sure if theyre special edition)....I also put each batch out of the oven right into the freezer (on a separate plate) for about 5 minutes so that the candies on top dont melt in the hot cookies. Best recipe ever!

Sicilian Lemon Chicken with Raisin-Tomato Sauce
My husband and I like this. I dont know if I did this right, but it was pretty spicy. Ive added 1/4 cayenne to other recipes, but I thought this was way spicy. I agree with other reviews- definitely need to add some chicken broth and do not drain the tomatoes. The idea and basis of this recipe was good though. Might make again.
