About this Cook
I started seriously cooking after I got married. After being single for 32 years it was time to cook something other than microwave popcorn for dinner. I'm Italian so I've grown up eating lots of spaghetti. But I love food and am willing to try anything. My husband is a meat & potatoes kind of guy. His idea of exciting food is spaghetti. Needless to say I spend a lot of time trying to get him to try new things.

My cooking tragedies
I can't bake a cake without it cracking down the middle. I definitely need practice.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins
Very good! It made 11 generous sized muffins. I was worried that there was too much topping, but it melted into the muffins well. I made it as directed and will definitely make again.

Homemade Mac and Cheese
This was very yummy and my husband said it was just like his mom used to make. I used the entire 16oz box of macaroni and added 1/2 teaspoon of pepper to the cheese mixture. I also upped the breadcrumbs to 3/4 cup as we both like the crunchy topping. I think next time I'll add more cheese to the top and maybe some garlic salt.

Candied Carrots
These are delicious and have become a staple at our holiday dinner table. I usually cook them longer than the 3-5 minutes as stated in the recipe. Cooking them longer really helps the flavor to set in. Yum!
