Me and my son Randall
About this Cook
My wonderful husband Randy and I have three beautiful children, Isabelle (Belle)4, Randall, he's 2 and our baby Henry who's 8 months. We're living in Provo for the next two years while my husband completes his MBA at BYU.
My favorite things to cook
Food is my childhood. I am passionate about creating food traditions for my family that they will love as they grow. I love to cook wonderful French and Italian gourmet food and also the comforting home-made things that can only be found at home.
My favorite family cooking traditions
A wonderful woman used to make these pumpkin oatmeal chocolate chip cookies for me when I was little and when I grew up and got married she gave me the recipe for a wedding present! I only make them from september 23 (the first day of fall) - December 31, and everyone gets so excited when that time of year comes so we can eat the cookies.

Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies
I added cinnamon sugar to the tops before baking. Delish!

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style
The best part of this recipe is the slow cooking time. I think THAT is the true reason this recipe is so wonderful. I find that stuffing the cavity with lemon wedges, onion and parsley really adds a nice flavor. Also, I melt butter and brush it over the seasoned chicken before I pop it in the oven. That helps with browning.

Kalua Pig in a Slow Cooker
I read a lot of other reviews and was concerned with the saltiness others complained about. I went out and found the hawaiian clay sea salt and when i tasted it, it was quite different from regular table salt and even coarse salt. I was extrememly impressed by this dish, and having been to many luau's it is very close to what I've had there. I think the key to the dish turning out well is to buy the hawaiian salt--it's MUCH more mild and I think that's the key. I found the salt at whole foods market.
