About this Cook
Grew up baking with mom. My cooking needs work, though.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make appetizers and bake cookies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My large family gathers once a month and everyone brings a dish to pass. More food than we could ever consume.
My cooking triumphs
My chicken always turns out great for some reason.
My cooking tragedies
I can't make a good banana bread or pot roast to save my life. Have tried each innumerable times.

Penne with Spicy Vodka Tomato Cream Sauce
This has become a family favorite! We use 3 sausages and just boil them and slice instead of breaking them up. Then use the same water to boil the noodles. Also, we buy a small can of tomato sauce to help freshen up the leftovers as they can dry out a little. Soooo delicious!

Herb Roasted Pork
I gave it four stars because the herb rub and sauce were awesome and I will totally make it again, but the cook time is way off. I followed the recipe exactly (my loin was 5 1/3 lbs.) and it reached 145 degrees after 1 hour! It put me in a bind as I had company coming and it was done WAY too early. I turned the oven way down to 'warm' and hoped it wouldn't over cook. It did, but not by much. Still edible, but dry. Beware if you have company coming. Use a meat thermometer and keep an eye on it.

Banana Cake VI
I followed the recipe exactly. It's basically banana bread with frosting on it. I like banana bread and I like frosting, so it's not bad. It got better with age.... more moist (I kept it in the fridge). If I were serving for company I would make it 1-3 days ahead of time.
