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!

Stuffed Alfredo Baked Potatoes
Loved it! We have been trying to do 'Meatless Mondays' and this was the perfect fit! It was great tasting and very filling. A wonderful idea for a baked potato and I look forward to putting all kinds of pasta sauce on baked potatoes from now on.

Chicken Alfredo Zucchini Boats
This was a great appetizer that was filling enough to be a main dish! Great taste and we loved the Classico Creamy Alfredo sauce so much that we spooned more on top. The second time I made it I mixed the tomato into the mixture and it baked up better!

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.
