About this Cook
I am a student at Grand Valley State University. I began cooking when I moved away from home. At first everyone teased me about how much I loved cooking but now they love "reaping" the "rewards"!!
My favorite things to cook
Wow, I am still learning but I like desserts but don't make them much. I Really enjoy making soups. You get to do a little bit of everything when making them and I usally create something fun to go along with it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My dad is the griller, my mom is fablous at desserts and party food. She always has the dish everyone gets the recipe before they leave the party.
My cooking triumphs
Learning to find a way to make food healthier.
My cooking tragedies
I just think of them as building blocks!

Shrimp Scampi Cheesecake Appetizer
My family loves this recipe and requests it every christmas eve. I always make it in individual little phillo cups (sometimes used for mini cheesecakes) instead of big pastry puffs. This way it's a simple little appeziter to pop while you mingle at a party. I found you can make the filling a day ahead to save time. ENOJOY this is fantastic

Tropical Salad with Pineapple Vinaigrette
I love this salad. I made it twice now, once for a special mothers day lunch and again for a bridal shower luncheon. Its always a huge sucess and everyone love how light and sweet it is. I've even substitued the mac. nuts for cashews and it was delicous both ways
