About this Cook
I am a nurse by profession but currently work part time as a Biology and Botany teacher. Cooking is my passion and favorite hobby. I spend most of my time in the kitchen responding to 3 kids yelling "I'm hungry" all the time. I love planning menus and especially love being in a Gourmet Club with my husband Dan and some of our best friends. I have fun trying new recipes but it is the old tried and true that I stick to. I like to read, travel, and spend time with family and friends. I also enjoy speaking to MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) groups in my area about cooking, entertainment, and hospitality. I also write food articles for my brother's (and fellow foodie) blog called I host my own food website called Visit me there.
My favorite things to cook
Anything quick and easy but looks like I spent all day.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Italian cookies, pastas, and sauces. Mom makes a great Sunday Dinners which I someday hope to master but I will wait till the kids are old enough to wash all those silly dishes. I have also started to dabble in candy making.
My cooking triumphs
Making a complete meal out of hardly any food in the house. Planning my menu for one year. Creating cooking charts which makes cooking and freezing a cinch. Having a recipe published in Taste of Home magazine. And planning a Make-A-Mix night for 75 women making a total of 825 mixes in under 45 minutes!
My cooking tragedies
Dropping the whole entire tray of Shrimp Louis Cocktails on Christmas Day. Each cocktail was in a large martini glass and surprisingly no glass broke but I had to start all over.

Angel Chicken Pasta
I made this quickie style because I didn't have 60 minutes. Put all the makings of the sauce in a sauce pan and added 1 1/2 cups skim milk. Heated through. Cooked 6 frozen boneless skinless breasts in the micro til done. Chopped chicken and added to the sauce. Meanwhile boiled the pound of angel hair. Placed angel hair on pretty platter and poured the sauce and chicken over top and sprinkled with fresh chopped green onion. Done in 20 minutes!! And looked so pretty too! Thanks!

Peanut Noodles
This is too heavy. You can't even suck up the noodles through your lips without having a big blob of goo hanging off you bottom lip. My peanutbutter lovin' kids were excused from having to even finish it. Will hunt for a better recipe.

Japanese Chicken Wings
Very tasty chicken dish. After reading the reviews I made some simple changes to add more flavor and thicken the sauce. 1) I used 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs. 2) Marinated the chicken in the sauce all day. 3) Removed chicken from sauce and fried according to the directions. 4) Strained the sauce into a small saucepan and added 1 T. of cornstarch and heated until thickened, then poured over the chicken to bake. This came out very flavorful, sweet and sticky!
