Just a normal girl trying to survive in this crazy world! Love to cook, am not afraid to burn things or experiment in the kitchen. Most of my recipes come from me doing just that (experimenting that is...) I am really looking forward to being more interactive with AllRecipes.com & sharing more & actually commenting & trying. Please feel free to share any tips or info! Have a great day!
My favorite things to cook
I love pasta (Im Italian, I have to), I love my Crock pot so I do alot of stews & chilis. I can make anything from scratch... I do love to cook Breakfast the best though. I make some mean hashbrowns (potatoes)... I just really love to cook anything!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Well I am the only cook in my house so there isnt so much tradition as there is the need to eat! But I do love big holidays or work get togethers where I get to bring my food for others to eat. I love seeing people enjoy something I created!
My cooking triumphs
I finally figured out how to make the best fried chicken (it isnt fried - its baked)... From several different recipes from here, I came up with my own little methods. Who doesnt love fried chicken, but it is soo bad for you & I finally was able to attain the crisp & not having to fry it.
My cooking tragedies
People tend to tell me I burn scrambled eggs... I cook so many things at once for breakfast that I tend to forget eggs only take a moment! I also tend to have a heavy salt hand & sometimes I tend to make things too salty!
