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!

Whole Grain Spaghetti with Cherry Tomatoes, Marinated Chicken Breast and Pesto
Great recipe! We loved the texture of the whole grain spaghetti. I don't think I will make regular spaghetti anymore! All the ingredients worked really well together. I put 2 chicken breasts in this one.

Rotini with Asparagus, Salmon and Cherry Tomatoes
Love the Barilla Plus Rotini in this! Always looking for a great salmon recipe and this will now be added to my regular mix. Added more lemon for flavor and was a big hit with the family.
