About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking non-traditional pasta/Italian dishes, and love coming up with different ways to flavor/season food via rubs, marinades, etc., for healthier cooking and eating. I also love to pair wine with meals.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving is by far my favorite meal to prepare. I don't even consider it work, it is a very enjoyable meal for me. Except pies.....I can cook really well, but my baking experience is very beginner level.
My cooking triumphs
My lasagna is made completely from scratch, and I have received many compliments on it.
My cooking tragedies
I will not even attempt Asian dishes anymore.......they are just not my strong suit : )

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies
Awesome recipe and very easy. The only modification I make is an extra teaspoon of vanilla for more flavor. The first time I made these they were a little sticky, however the second time I used a pastry cloth and had no issues at all. Best sugar cookie recipe, and I will always use this one.

Turkey Brine
The best brine recipe ever. Just hosted a dinner and every guest stated it was the best turkey they had ever had. I followed the recipe exactly as it is, and I used a brining bag instead of the bucket.
