About this Cook
I come from a long line of people who are interested in food (on both sides of the family). My grandparents and parents are all excellent cooks. My father was a Chef in the Marine Corps and has awesome stories to tell about his experience with that. My husband and I enjoy cooking together and cooking for others. Seeing the joy on someone's face after cooking a meal for them is as good as giving any present. :-)
My favorite things to cook
My husband and I love making my family's pasta and meatball recipe (it's a secret family recipe - so you won't find it here!). We do pasta, meatballs (with sausage and potatoes in the sauce) accompanied by baked eggplant parmesan, a nice Italian salad and warm crusty Italian bread. We've made this meal most recently for our anniversary part and my husband's birthday party (about 20-30 people at a time). It's always a crowd pleaser.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite family cooking tradition is definitely holiday meals. Both sides of my family cook awesome holiday food. I very much look forward to it every year.
My cooking triumphs
Every time I cook a big meal and have the kitchen cleaned by the time the meal is ready - it's a triumph!
My cooking tragedies
Hmmm, frying chicken breast. I can never get the breading to stick. I'm sure the oil just isn't hot enough, but I'll probably get the hang of it eventually.

Butternut Squash Soup II
We love this soup! It's an awesome, healthy meal and quite tasty.. I eat clean and, therefore, don't eat white potatoes. I left the potatoes out, and it was just great.

No Bake Peanut Butter Pie
This pie is melt-in-your-mouth delicious! My husband and kids loved it; Since the recipe makes two pies, we gave one to my brother and sister-in-law - they also loved it. The taste of the filling is just irresistible and goes perfectly with a graham cracker crust. We'll make it again and again!!

Cabbage Rolls III
These were so delicious. I would love to make them again soon. They are great re-heated too!! I loved the sauerkraut on them as opposed to pasta sauce (how I've always had them in the past). My husband loved them too. I had some meat/rice filling left over and made a meatloaf with it (adding a little spaghetti sauce and sauerkraut to the loaf).
