About this Cook
I'm 28, married and work for a non-profit. I have 2 dogs and 2 cats who I consider to be my children. I used to love to cook but then I got busy and lost interest for a while. Now I'm back into it and loving this website!
My favorite things to cook
Anything ooey, gooey, and saucy.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Eating spritz cookies and dill crackers at Christmas.
My cooking triumphs
Desserts seem to turn out the best for me.
My cooking tragedies
I'm ashamed to admit this but, before I knew any better, I once tried to cook a turkey - frozen solid - in the oven. Needless to say, that didn't work out.

Chocolate Brittle Surprise
So easy and so delicious! Part of me wishes I had never found this recipe because it's too good! I can't stop eating it! Watch out 'cause this stuff is addictive.

Portobello Penne Pasta Casserole
I really liked this. If you don't like spinach and mushrooms, you may not care for it. I used a combination of evaporated and skim milk and it turned out creamy and delicious. I used whole wheat pasta (which I'm not a huge fan of) and it still tasted great. Like some other reviewers, I wasn't sure about the soy sauce but I really think it brings out the meatiness of the mushrooms - don't leave it out. Delicious!
