About this Cook
I'm a pushing 30, married gal to a wonderful hubby! I've always liked to cook, just never really had the time. Now that hubby works late most every night it gives me the chance to cook some great dinner. I've really broaden my range of cooking abilities in the last couple of years and it really helps having a hubby that's not picky!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook just about anything, but by far I love to cook any type of pasta dishes! I also love to experiement with new types of cookies and bread!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year around Christmas my sisters, nieces and I always get together for a weekend and do lots of cookie baking!
My cooking triumphs
Any time I hear someone go "MMMMMMMMM" while eating something I cooked is a triumph!! Valentines Day 2009...I successfully made my first lobster tail! It was great!
My cooking tragedies
I cannot...for the life of me...make homemade mac & cheese! Especially ones with a flour/butter base. It always turns out so thick and pasty. Yuck!

Lawn Mower Salad
Yum! Made this for supper last night and it was really good. I liked the sweetness of the dressing with the saltyness of the nuts plus the extra crunch they added was a great touch. Will definitely be making this again! Thanks!

Awesome Broccoli-Cheese Casserole
We loved this! Only change I made was to use 2 - 12 oz packages of broccoli. Baked for exactly an hour. I found that this also make a great baked potato topper as well. Next time I may try putting some crushed ritz crackers on top for a little crunch.

Speedy Bagel Tuna Melt
These are great for fast meals. Not a lot of ingredients and super easy to throw together. I used the bagel thins instead of a full size bagel and it was perfect.
