Married to my highschool sweetheart. Have two curious boys. Love to decorate, read, cook, play piano, paint watercolors. Work as a youth director and church secretary.

everything! this family loves food!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family loves to cook burrito casserole and anything Polish. (My mom is 100%). We also love cookies on rainy days. My hubby would eat anything.
My cooking tragedies
One time I made chocolate chip cookies with soft butter, and they acted as laxatives on everyone's stomaches. My then boyfriend barely made his half hour trip home. Whenever I think of his bloated trip I smile because he turned out to be a real dud. :)Gosh I am so mean :)

No-Cream Pasta Primavera
Wonderful! Loved the veggies! Used quinoa pasta so that this dish was gluten free! Great flavor with the lemon on the roasted veggies...balsamic vinegar was a great addition but you have to like how balsamic tastes! If you are not a fan of the balsamic, make without and use it on the side for those who like it.
