About this Cook
I grew up in a house where my dad did 90% of the cooking. Learning to cook was not a rite of passage for daughters in my house. My first year of marriage I could make scrambled eggs and macaroni and cheese (from a box). Now (fifteen years later) my husband brags about my cooking and friends call me for recipe ideas.
My favorite things to cook
I like to make comfort foods, Italian dishes and breads.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother's harvest rolls are a must for Thanksgiving dinner.
My cooking triumphs
Chicken pot pie
My cooking tragedies
No real tragedies but my pie crust needs work.

Carrot Cake III
Absolutely love this recipe. I omit the pecans and reduce the powdered sugar to 3 cups. My family doesn't like nuts in things and I like the tartness of the cream cheese. This wins rave reviews every time I make it for whomever I make it.

Roasted New Red Potatoes
The only reason I gave four instead of five stars is that I amended the recipe. I added garlic, which my family loves, and this is one of our favorite side dishes. I use 4-5 cloves.

Chicken Milano
Very tasty! Great flavor, moist chicken my family loved it we will definitely make again. I had to substitute milk and cornstarch for the heavy cream (thought I had some and I didn't). Next time I will follow the recipe.
