About this Cook
I love to cook! The best part is when folks ask for seconds. Then I know it's a success!
My favorite things to cook
Traditional, family foods. Nothing too fancy, but hearty and healthy. I love to experiment and luckily my husband isn't a picky eater.
My favorite family cooking traditions
All day cooking events for big holiday dinners. Ethnic foods from my grandparents were made growing up and are still my favorite comfort foods.
My cooking triumphs
Getting confident enough to experiment on my own and not needing measuring cups/spoons. Learning to go off instinct of what tastes good/how long to cook/how much to add, etc.
My cooking tragedies
Not listening to my gut instinct on a recipe and being disappointed in the results.

Orange Tilapia
Let the fish marinate in the orange juice about 4 hours, with a few sprinkles of pepper and other seasonings, then reduced the marinade in a pan on the stovetop and used that concentrated OJ for the topping and baking the fish. Used regular bread crumbs and a reduced amount of dried basil for the topping. 15 minutes in the oven was just about right. Delicious and great flavor!

Garlic Bread Spread
Fab-U-lous! Didn't have "fines" herbs and added a couple dashes of paprika. This recipe was enough for two loaves of bread, for us. Baked one loaf and spread, then froze the other without baking. Can't wait to make it again.

Chicken Marsala
Excellent! We dumped in the leftover breading flour before adding the wine to make it thicker. Cooking wines worked fine for us. Great dinner.
