About this Cook
I enjoy cooking and baking for friends and family. I love the outdoors and enjoy spreading the love of Christ through missions.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking over baking, although I find myself baking quite a bit. I love making chicken marsala and some of my traditional family recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite family cooking tradition is homemade spaghetti and meatballs. I love making the homemade pasta and having it dry in my kitchen. It is so fun to have a spaghetti dinner with lots of labor of love. I also love our Italian Christmas Eve food tradition which includes a lot of seafood and various pasta dishes.
My cooking tragedies
When I was in high school and was experimenting with recipes, I misunderstood a recipe and used sweetened condensed milk instead of evaporated milk. I'll never make that mistake again!

Gourmet Mushroom Risotto
This was incredible! Took awhile to cook (longer than the recipe indicated) but I was knew that before beginning the process. This was a wonderful recipe that I will use again!

Banana Crumb Muffins
I love these! I've never been a huge fan of straight up banana bread but with the crumb topping, it brings it to a whole new level!

Focaccia Bread
Really enjoyed this. We didn't proof the yeast, we followed as recipe indicated. This tastes the closest focaccia we had in Italy (even including restaurants offering focaccia).

Something about the grill's heat brings out the best flavor in the simplest chicken recipe.
