I am a stay at home mom now who has been on Jenny Craig since May 05. I have to cook for my husband, so, here I am, trying to balance weight loss with keeping him and my daughter healthy and satisfied. 27 pounds down, 30 to go!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook Thai food, very old fashion comfort foods, and grilled veggies and Steak on the grill.
My favorite family cooking traditions
my great grandmother's lazagna. It has hard boiled egg and pepperoni as ingredients and I think that is so cool.
My cooking triumphs
My Lazagna is known through out the neighborhood, as is my baked chicken.
My cooking tragedies
Once, I had new friends over for a local dish I learned in Upstate NY called "Chicken Riggies". It calls for peppers, and I did not pre taste the jalepenos. I threw the whole jar in. We sit down to eat, and my guests noses and eyes start running and we are all starving, but can't eat the burning hot spicy dinner. I burped up peppers for a week and they never asked us over again.
