About this Cook
Why do I cook... because I like to (clean up is another story). I work from home and my husband works outside the home so it is nice to have something new to cook for him at least once a week.
My favorite things to cook
I don't have a favorite recipe or food. I like almost anything and love to have a variety.
My cooking triumphs
Old Family (secret) recipe for Italian Meatballs and Spaghetti
My cooking tragedies
I don't think I have every had a complete disaster. There have been some semi-disasters, but for the most part even those are fairly edible LOL :)

Breakfast Bacon and Sausage Pizza
Tasty! We were limited by what we had in the house. We didn't have sausage, only bacon. We baked some tater-tots, cut them in half and added those to the pizza. We only had 6 eggs and 1 pkg of crescents, but it still fit well in a 9x13. We sauteed some garlic and onion and mixed in with the eggs. This is really versatile to what you have on hand.

Super-Delicious Zuppa Toscana
I have been making this soup for a couple of years, it's one of my favorites! The changes I make are using half and half instead of heavy cream, pancetta instead of bacon and cubed potatoes instead of thinly sliced. Also, instead of adding the spinach or kale (both are good) directly to the soup, I rough chop it and place it in the bottom of the soup bowls and ladle hot soup over it. With just two of us, we eat this for several meals and the fresh greens each day make it taste just made.

Broccoli and Sausage Cavatelli
I've made this many times. I've tried other variations too. Asparagus instead of broccoli and shrimp instead of sausage. Most of the time I make it just like the recipe, except I use a shredded 6 italian cheese mix from my grocery store (parmesan, mozzarella, romano, asiago, fontina, provolone) and I use quite a bit more than 1/4 cup.
