About this Cook
I grew up as a USMC brat in a family of 6. I started cooking at a young age, and as time has gone by, my interest has developed into a passion. I enjoy cooking and baking, and one of my recent ventures has been into the arena of cake decorating. I find cooking and baking a very worthwhile activity to pursue, I view baking and cooking as a labour of love. While I do enjoy "tweaking" recipes, I will always make it as originally stated, it really amuses me when people "massacre" recipes and then rate them so low, so I make it a point to always try the recipe as written the first time around! I host a blog which can be found at
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking, especially with herbs, thus Italian food is a favourite of mine especially lasagna! I especially love making a red velvet cake, the vibrant red colour is so exquisite when topped with the traditional butter roux frosting -I've been called a "red velvet snob" as I always refuse a red velvet cake that has been frosted with (gasp) cream cheese frosting!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year on Christmas, mum & dad cook together in the kitchen making an amazing breakfast - pancakes, bacon, sausage, hashbrowns, biscuits and gravy...there's just something comforting about sharing breakfast together on Christmas day. Afterwards I would bake a red velvet birthday cake and then dad would read the real Christmas story and we would then open presents!
My cooking triumphs
I view every successful recipe as a triumph and I'm quite pleased w/ my recipe for pecan crusted trout
My cooking tragedies
As of today my worst cooking tragedy was when I burned a rack of baby back ribs...they were "extra crispy"!

Easy Summer Gazpacho
I have never made gazpacho, and since I cook for my parents who follow the pritikin plan I chose to make this. I left out the oil, sugar, and skipped the lemon juice. I microwaved the veggies just to kill off any enzymes. The texture was good even w/ microwaving. It made me think a chunky v8. I think it would be good warm, and might add chicken or rice to it if I make it again.

White Fiber Mini Shells with Cherry Tomatoes, Basil and Parmigiano-Reggiano Cheese
This wasn't my favorite Barilla recipe. I served it chilled, but seemed like it was missing something. Perhaps warm is better?

Baked Ziti with Cheese
This was so fast to make! I did not heat the milk separately. Simply melted the butter added the flour, whisked it to make a roux, and slowly add the milk while continuing to whisk the mixture. Buffalo mozzarella is easy to find, one brand is made by Galbani it won't specifically say buffalo mozzarella but it's the same thing. I followed the recipe the rest of the way except I used Panko breadcrumbs... Fantastic recipe!!!
