About this Cook
My cooking triumphs
I'm all about reusing leftovers. Can't let anything go to waste when you are Italian and Polish! I love potatoes.. any kind. Usually I bake them in the oven with some rosemary olive oil salt pepper cayenne pepper for a side dish to chicken or beef. I had some leftover one night and decided to make a fantastic and EASY appetizer for my boyfriend and his friends. I spread the potatoes (which were baked not fried!!) down on tin foil and laid 4 strips of turkey bacon (35 calories a slice!) over the top. Placed them in the toaster over on broil for about ten minutes until the bacon was cooked. Then I added low fat cheddar cheese to melt. A perfect alternative to fast food!

Rosemary and Garlic Simmered Pork Chops
The pork chops alone were extremely tasty and a great alternative to shake and bake, but I had to jazz it up just a little bit. Before I started cooking the pork chops, I boiled some chopped carrots until they were tender. Then I sauteed the carrots with sliced mushrooms and onions in some butter. When they were all cooked and the pork was about done, I added the veggies to the simmering chops for a couple of minutes. A perfect compliment to this already delicious and EASY meal!

Garlic Shrimp Scampi
This is one of my favorite recipes to make! It's quick and easy! The only thing I changed was I obviously left in the garlic, probably added more than it called for and added cherry tomatoes for a little more flavor and color. Just cut them in half and threw them into the cooked shrimp to simmer with the sauce for a few minutes. I also leave out the bread crumbs because I like a lighter sauce, and I added a dash of lemon juice. Delicious!
