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!

Sweet and Sour Sesame Seed Salad Dressing
Very Good! I cut the recipe down to only make 1 cup and subbed honey for the sugar (trying to keep it healthier), only using 2 Tbsps. (I think I could've actually just used one and it would've been plenty sweet). I just used this on a veggie type salad, but can't wait to try it on a mandarin chicken salad. The family enjoyed this! Thanks for sharing. :)

Avocado Salad with Avocado-Lime Vinaigrette
Very good! I had this for lunch today and it was super simple to put together and very tasty! I would've never thought to make a vinaigrette using avocado, but it's a GREAT idea. I did cut the recipe down, but that was my only change. I would make this refreshing salad again! Thanks for sharing. :)
