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!

Roasted Winter Squash Seeds Buffalo Hot Wings-Style
SO GOOD! I got distracted (shocker, lol), so mine came out a bit darker than I would've liked, but they are still yummy! I used pumpkin seeds. The guys are loving them...a definite keeper~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)

Marshmallow Fondant
Fantastic!!!! I mixed this all up in my kitchen aid w/ excellent results and less mess! I made this a few days before and refrigerated it until I was ready to use it, just bring it to room temp first. I used this to cover cookies and it really worked well...This recipe a keeper~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)

Al's Favorite Spinach Power Salad
This was tasty! I really enjoyed the combo of flavors and textures. I wasn't sure about the dressing at first, but once combined with everything else, it was fine. I did add some sea salt and fresh cracked pepper. This was nice and I felt good eating it. I would make this again, and add some thinly sliced red onion too! Thanks for sharing. :)
