About this Cook
Hi! My name is Ryanne. Im in my mid 20's. I live on Dover Air Force Base in Dover, DE. Im originally from Queens, NY. Im a former career Mom. I decided a few months ago to become a stay at home Mom so I can spend more time with my 3 yr old son. So far Im really enjoying it. Its very rewarding for me and I now have time to cook! No more McDonald's 2x's a week!
My favorite things to cook
I don't really have a favorite type of food to cook. I like to cook all types of foods. Since joining Allrecipes I've really expanded my horizons and have made foods that I never thought I'd make. Surprisingly everything I have made so far has been delicious! Im a South Beacher and have found so many South Beach friendly recipes with lots of flavor.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Unfortunately we dont have a family cooking tradition. I know bad us!!!! Growing up we always had spaghetti and meatballs with semolina bread on Sundays. Being from a half Italian family from Queens, spaghetti sundays are a must. I havent carried on that tradition since my husband and I dont eat those types of foods anymore. I will always remember that as a favorite family tradition though! Every once in a blue moon I'll make it a spaghetti and meatball Sunday but thats very rare.
My cooking triumphs
Making german chocolate frosting!! That came out faaaabulous!!!! That was DEFINITELY a WORTH IT cheat day! I experimented and ended up making my green beans taste just like the green beans from our favorite chinese restaurant that we dont get to eat at much. Of course I did it in a healthy way and you couldn't even tell!
My cooking tragedies
I cannot get my beef briscuit to tastes like my MIL's. No matter what I do it is soooo dry!! I do NOT even attempt to cook briscuit anymore. :( Ive always been a bad cookie baker. Ive only made one good batch of cookies in my life. I guess that's a good thing. Keeps me away from em!! I do enjoy the No-bake cookie recipes.

Simple BBQ Ribs
This turned out fantastic!!!!! I tweeked it up a bit though. To the water I added fresh garlic cloves, one onion quartered, cracked black pepper and Memphis Rub seasoning. These were so tender I had to be careful taking them out of the pot!!!

Turkey Tetrazzini II
This recipe was pretty good. I used garlic chicken broth instead of plain. Im glad I did because without the garlic I think this recipe would've been very bland. Next time Im going to add in sauteed onions and Asiago cheese. Overall it was pretty good and I'd make this again. My family liked it also.

Vanilla - Chocolate Powdered Sugar Frosting
Pretty good for a quick frosting. A bit on the sweet side though and I had to add more milk cause it was too thick to ice the cake with. I'd make it again.
