About this Cook
I have always loved to cook since I was very young. I still remember many of my first dishes and still make them today-much better though! I cook for my household as well as my parents. I have two young nephews and we are always trying something new in the kitchen. Baking seems to come easy and I love when the house smells of something fresh in the oven. I seek out new things to try and am learning more and more about healthy cooking.
My favorite things to cook
I love trying new recipes and new twists on old favorites. Italian I cook at least once a week. My slow cooker gets lots of use these days with everything from soups, stews, chicken dishes and fall off the bone ribs! One-dish casseroles and one-skillet meals are very popular at my house. I am very interested in hors d'oeuvres and sometimes we make a meal out of a selection of them. All types of meat, poultry, fish, and veggies are always on the menu. I love garlic and am not afraid to use it!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I learned a lot from my Mother and she has some great dishes I love recreating. Breaded pork tenderloin medallions with marinara sauce and italian cheese melted on top. Tuna sandwiches crusted with pecans. Once a month I make 'gravy' in a pot all day and use it for many dishes after a nice pasta dinner.
My cooking triumphs
Chicken Marsala is one of my specialties. Also, banana bread, zucchini bread, chicken saltimboca, roasted potatoes, and mushrooms. Steak! I have always avoided cooking steak because it would always come out over or under done. I have been researching all the different cuts and experimenting with cooking methods. I'm not a steak master yet but I'm definitely not cringing over seeing a steak and a pan!
My cooking tragedies
The first time I made rice pudding I left it in too long and it was of quiche consistency. The next time I made it it came out the same, overdone! I figured it out and made some changes. I've overcooked ribs in the slow cooker too many times to count. I've got them down to a good tenderness now!

Easy Garlic Kale
So easy and simple. Making this recipe put me in the 'love kale' category. Will make again. I doubled the garlic in this one.

Lemon Garlic Chicken
Great taste and something that comes together easily. Love lemon-garlic anything and this one is a keeper! I know I used more garlic than in the recipe-adjust to taste.

Slow Cooker Butternut Squash Soup
Good soup! I made a few changes and this one is a keeper. I used chicken broth instead of the water, doubled the garlic powder and nutmeg, added some ground cinnamon and topped it with some heavy cream. Good easy to make soup.
