About this Cook
I am so lucky to have a fantastic hubby and two super cute little boys. My husband is a Chiropractor and right now I am a stay at home mom. Prior to having my boys I was a stock broker at a local bank.
My favorite things to cook
I love to find new and fun family style seafood recipies. We all love seafood and I always enjoy the feeling of a happy family gathered around the kitchen table.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love to have summer parties out on the deck. We always have so much fun swimming, drinking beer and roasting clams on the grill on a warm summer day!!
My cooking triumphs
Nothing overly spectacluar yet ... but I will keep you posted!! :)
My cooking tragedies
My first party in my new house. I had all of the food ready to go into the oven ahead of time. When the guests arrived I turned on the oven and put the food in. Only to find out that our oven had DIED and there was no way to cook the food ..... I grabbed the closest bottle of wine and then called for take out!! :)

Easy Slow Cooker French Dip
Made this last night exactly as written. After 5 hours of cooking on low the meat was tough and WAY over cooked, almost like leather. It was completely inedible. What a waste of $$$.

Hot Tamale Pie
Good but next time I will add a little more spices and cheese. It was slightly bland as written.
