About this Cook
I was recently married, September 2, 2007, and am loving learning to be a good wife!! I try to cook as often as I can, but have quite a fast paced life right now and only get to do it once a week or so.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook anything with PASTA! My fav!!! I use mostly chicken, as it's a healthier alternative, but I'm sure my husband would prefer I use more red meat! I've recently starting to experiment a little with roasts and fish and I love it! It's fun expanding...my recipe box and not my waistline of course!
My favorite family cooking traditions
We have a baking day every year for Christmas! We make little platters for all the neighbors and our friends and family!
My cooking triumphs
I make a mean Carrot Cake with from scratch Cream Cheese frosting!!!
My cooking tragedies
I haven't screwed anything up too badly, yet :) although I do tend to forget the bread when I warm it in the oven...oops!

Clone of a Cinnabon
Yumm! These were so good and such a hit with the fam! One note: make sure to make these in a 9x12 brownie pan so they stay together and moist. Remove from pan and seperate right away otherwise you'll have the ugliest, but most delish cinn rolls ever :)

Chicken Marsala
Yumm, yumm, yumm! I did it just slightly different: I left out the Sherry and used only Marsala; I used 2 whole packages of mushrooms to cram extra veggies in there; I skipped dredging the chicken in flour and instead just sprinkled with salt, pepper and oregano on the chicken itself before adding to the pan; I also removed some of the wine sauce while it was cooking, mixed in a little bit of flour to thicken it and mixed it back in the rest...thickened up perfectly and was delish served over spaghetti. I'll definitely make again!

Oranged Cranberry Sauce
So DELICIOUS!!! I did have to simmer for closer to 2 hours,but I think that's because you don't need to add the full 2 cups of water (hold the cranberries down with your hand while pouring the water so that you can really see how much you need). It was so heavenly...It's now the cranberry sauce of my family's thanksgiving and christmas dinners :)
