About this Cook
Hi Everyone! My name is Christina and I live in Pittsburgh (born and raised here) with my husband, Jim (we have been married for 11 years), my son Gabriel (he is 7), and our twin baby girls born June 22, 2011, Abby and Ally. I love cooking and sharing recipes and have a pretty extensive cookbook/recipe collection. I think my love of cooking comes from my mom and dad. We are definately a family that loves to cook (AND EAT!). I also enjoy watching hockey, LET'S GO PENS!, walking, crocheting and doing crafts. I am looking forward to meeting alot of new people here, and sharing tips and ideas.
My favorite things to cook
EVERYTHING! I love trying new things and we are not a picky family, so anything goes!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Just cook with love and patience. I am 1/2 Italian and 1/2 Lebanese, so we have tons of family traditions.
My cooking triumphs
When I was maybe 12 years old, I had a dinner party for some close neighbors and I made stuffed shrimp, homemade gnocchi with sauce, salad, homemade croissants and creme caramel for dessert. I was so proud of myself. When I cook and I can see the look of enjoyment on the people I am servings faces, that is a triumph all in itself.
My cooking tragedies
None that I can recall, LOL!

Tomato Bruschetta
Made this for Recipe Group...BIG HIT! I used Italian bread, so it was more like a 'garlic bread' type thing to go w/ our pasta dinner. I used a mix of yellow and cherry tomatoes from the garden. Great flavor and it was enjoyed by all...a keeper~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)

Sassy Freezer Slaw
Made this for Recipe Group...If you like slaw in any form, you're gonna LOVE this! I like that this is made and ready to go in the freezer for a quick side. I halved the recipe and used one 16oz. bag of coleslaw mix (YES, I'm lazy, lol), and that worked perfectly. The dressing is SOOOOO GOOD! Thanks, sass, this is a keeper~YUM! :)

Roquefort Dressing II
Very good! I did not find this too thick at all, in fact, mine was a bit on the thin side, not sure why, but it was still good. Easy and flavorful...a keeper! Thanks for sharing. :)
