About this Cook
My husband and I have been married for 18 years. We have two beautiful children, a daughter (16) and a son (14). I grew up in Wisconsin, the youngest of 7 children. I work full-time in the printing industry, from the comforts of my home. My husband is from Italy, from a town called Aprilia, which is about 30 minutes from Rome. I learned a lot about Italian cooking from his mother. She came to stay with us for 7 months when each of our children were born. My husband and I both enjoy cooking, and we prepare meals at home 6-7 nights a week. One of us usually runs the kids to their activities, and the other stays home and cooks. We make a great team!

My favorite things to cook
I have a major sweet tooth and love to bake! Muffins, breads, cookies, cakes. My husband bakes homemade bread a couple of times a week. We eat a LOT of pasta, and enjoy making fresh pasta for Sunday dinner as a special treat!
My favorite family cooking traditions
When I was a young girl, my job was to do most of the candy and cookie making around the holidays. I still make the same things I made when I was a little girl, and am trying to hand down these traditions to my children as well. Every Thanksgiving, I make a big traditional Thanksgiving dinner. Both of our families live far away, so we always invite our friends or neighbors over to share this meal.
My cooking triumphs
Too many to count. Probably making yeast breads. After a couple of failures, I finally got it right.

Diabetic-Friendly Apple Muffins
These are a nice option for a diabetic or someone watching calories/sugar intake. If I ever become one of those people, I'd make these again. I prefer a sweeter muffin, personally. No fault of the recipe, just my opinion. I did make this exactly as directed. I'll be eating them dunked in my sweet morning coffee! :)

Steak Dry Rub
I made a half a recipe, because I wasn't sure how we were going to like it. We liked it! We used it on rib eyes tonight, that hubs grilled to a perfect medium rare. I think this would be really good on chicken or ribs too.

Jean's Marinated Mushrooms
These are very good! The longer they sit, the better they get. The marinade is a lot for 2 (8 oz) packages of mushrooms. I see others commented about using it to marinade other things, so that's probably what I'll do, because I hate waste.
