Me & My Boo Bears!
About this Cook
Originally from LI, NY (GIANTS ALL THE WAY BABY!), I now live in Palm Springs, FL with my husband Dave and our "son" Tiger, a 6-yr old red Dobie! Some of my faves - music, football, biking, camping, travelling, movies, fishing, spending time with my family & friends. I also (this should actually be first) love my Lord & Savior Jesus and love fellowship with other believers!
My favorite things to cook
Pretty much anything - I love to experiment and try new things all the time, which is how I actually became a member of Allrecipes! After browsing their site, I became hooked! If I had to pick, I guess I would say lasagna, eggplant parmigiana, beef stew and home-made chicken soup!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baking with my Mom and sister every Christmas season. My sister lives in Jacksonville now, but my Mom & I still get together and bake. Also, Thanksgiving we all still get together and Mom makes her awesome dressing, which she got the recipe from her mom, my Nanny. And last, but not least I still love to have a good ol' bowl of soup and a sandwich on a rainy day! My Mom also taught us that!
My cooking triumphs
I consider myself a humble woman, but when it comes to cooking I must say I'm pretty darned good! And that also comes from my husband, Mom and all my friends - they LOVE it when we invite them over for dinner! I think it's in the blood, because I learned (almost) everything I know from my Mom and then enhanced my skills by just being open to experimenting and trying new ideas. My mother-in-law was also instrumental too, in the fact that I tried some foods for the first time in her home, as well as her letting me in her kitchen while she cooked!!
My cooking tragedies
I can honestly say I've only had 1 tragedy.....It was this recipe for pasta w/fresh veggies: peppers, peas, carrots, onions, etc. and the whole time it was cooking it smelled awesome; when we actually sat down to eat it, it was absolutely horrible!!! I still to this day, have no clue what happened, but needless to say we ate out that night! (after slaving for 2-3 hours....)

Baked Orange Roughy Italian-Style
My husband and & I ABSOLUTELY love this recipe, and have even tried "kicking it up a notch", but ultimately feel that some recipes don't need enhancing or any extra additives (even though we're Italian and LOVE taste...just bellisimo the way it is!!!) I added this to my Recipe Box over 5-6 years ago, and keep it the same as it is...Thank you for sharing

Creamy Pesto Shrimp
This was absolutely AWESOME! Double the sauce recipe and add 1 lb. scallops (cook them the same time as the shrimp, so they're not tough).......UNBELIEVABLE!!! This has become one of my new favorite recipes of all time! Thanks!

Linguine with Scampi
I BLEW my husband away with this recipe, and not to mention - myself!!! It is quick and absolutely DELICIOUS!!! The only thing I would change would be to add more butter or olive oil for more sauce - other than that, don't change a thing!
