About this Cook
I've been married for 21 years and have at 16 year old daughter and a 4 year old chocolate lab.
My favorite things to cook
Sunday dinners, comfort foods, italian, new recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Thanksgiving my daughter and I will make buttermilk grand biscuits look like turkeys .Now that she is older she still to asks help me make them.
My cooking triumphs
Cooking for my friends and having them love everything. The last time we had friends over,the roast was so perfectly done they couldnt stop talking about it.We even get requests for dinners when they are invited over.
My cooking tragedies
Dont ask my nephew about my baking skills as I have none. I can overcook a premade, preformed cookie in no time. He laughs whenever he is over for dinner and I offer cookies for dessert.

Orange Marinated Pork Tenderloin
All I can say is WOW. I added some red pepper flakes(we like a little spice) and the zest of a fresh orange to the marinade and then marinated it overnight. I also added a bit more orange zest to the sauce and reduced it by half, adding some cornstarch to thicken it a bit. The results were awesome. My husband can't stop talking about it, and can't wait for the leftovers.

Andrea's Pasta Fagioli
I grew up with "beans and macaroni" being thick. So I added the ditalini in the base and used beef broth instead of water. Also just a little crushed red pepper for some zing. End result wonderful and exactly what I was looking for. Just like grandma's.

Seafood Au Gratin
I made this last week for Sunday dinner and my husband can't wait to have it again. He calls it "loving in a bowl" . I cheated and used imitation crab and frozen smaller scallops and shrimp , to keep the price down. I mixed cheddar and mozzarella cheese since I didn't have provolone. Turned out great. Even my mom who is not a seafood eater loved it.
