About this Cook
Wife, teacher, amateur chef, sister, daughter, friend, and mommy to three cats. I love to travel, wine taste, read, watch movies, and experience food!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook everything, from classic comfort to new age hip. I love experimenting with flavor combinations.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking Thanksgiving dinner with my mom is my favorite tradition. I think about it every year. She is my biggest kitchen inspiration.
My cooking triumphs
At a surprise party for my husband one year, I cooked food for 50 people! It was a bit intimidating but turned out great.
My cooking tragedies
Curdling. I curdle everything. Eggs, butter, milk... you name it! I avoid recipes where you have to fix dairy with citrus at all costs!

Ranch Oyster Crackers
So-so recipe. I think the whole package of ranch dressing mix was too much. It had a very intense flavor, almost a bit too overwhelming for me. The next time I think I will half the amount of dressing.

Too Much Chocolate Cake
SO good! I made the recipe as stated except I had to bake it at 325 because I had a dark, non-stick Bundt pan. I baked it for 55 minutes and it came out perfect. I was a little nervous with the cup of oil but since this was a special occasion I decided to go for it. I'm happy I made this the day before the event because I really feel that the oil had a chance to soak into the cake and it tasted less greasy (had to try a little taste...hehehe). I topped it with the recommended Satiny Chocolate Cake. It was a huge hit...moist and decadent. Cannot wait to make this again. Thank you for sharing!

Poppy Seed Chicken Casserole
This was very rich but tasty. I added some garlic powder and Italian seasoning to boost the flavor. I also added a handful of frozen peas to get some veggies into it. I cut back on the amount of butter in the topping to about 2 tbsp and I also only added about a cup of cheese (to make it less fattening!). I used leftover rotisserie chicken and it added a nice flavorful boost. To be honest, I wasn't blown away by it, but it was a nice easy recipe that my family enjoyed.
