About this Cook
I used to be a horror in the kitchen, but in my early twenties began to find that I did enjoy creating fun meals with different types of foods. Now I am looking into cullinary school, but the greatest part about discovering my passion for food is that I am known in my group of friends as "the ONE that does all of the cooking". I love getting the gang together for large family style meals followed by drinks.
My favorite things to cook
I love to try new things. My favorite thing to do is take a simple dish & add my own flare to it - everyone refers to it as "Ang-style cooking". I seem to be a sucker on AR & like to try and "rescue" unrated recipes by giving them a go.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Anything Italian - especially my mom's lasagna because she learned how to make it from her full blood Italian off the boat grandmother! Also, we always have a huge turkey dinner for Thanksgiving & nothing beats that. :)
My cooking triumphs
I made up my own way to make turkey burgers and when ALL 4 BOYS that I was feeding (and these are meat and potato guys) liked them better than their traditional beef burgers I knew I did something right! Anytime that I try something new & different (like making my own bagels, ect) it always feels like a conquered something.
My cooking tragedies
Recently, it was trying to make homemade pasta for my mother's bday. It was horrific...we will leave it at that... :(

Pumpkin Dump Cake
Very good! The only thing I added to the pumpkin mix was 1/4 tsp nutmeg. The cake on top was a little thick, I had to use about 1/2 stick butter more than called for to cover the dry spots. The filling was good, but could have used a little more flavor. the Topping was AMAZING and made the dump cake. Took this to a party and got alot of compliments on it, thank you for sharing!

Pumpkin Pie
Actually, think this might be my fave pumpkin pie recipe from this site. I assembled it just as directed and used a deep dish pie crust. I did have to bake the pie for about 15 minutes more than the called time. Turned out perfectly!!! Thanks for sharing!

Avocado Salad
VERY good salad! I did double the amount of avocado, only used 1/2 a red onion (which was plenty in my opinion), used 1 green pepper & 1 red pepper, a whole lime, added minced garlic & just eyeballed the cilantro. Additionally, I placed some crumbled queso fresco on the side for people to sprinkle on top & it was pretty much an amaaaazzing addition. THANK YOU for sharing!
