About this Cook
I am happily married and have 2 kids...15 and 17! We live in a beach community and try to eat healthy. I left a big career about 5 years ago and have discovered my inner cook! We really love to entertain and we host all the family dinners in our big-old Craftsman home. I think I'm obsessed with finding the perfect recipes....my Mom says I take after my fraternal grandmother who was the most fabulous cook. Can't be all bad!
My favorite things to cook
I don't eat red-meat (drives my husband nuts) so I cook a lot of chicken, fish, pork and vegetables. I'm known for my appetizers. That is what I really love to create and I love eating something at a restaurant and trying to recreate at home. I also am trying to make each of my grandmother's recipe that she left me. (hundreds) My family all love being the taste-testers and my daughter is my best critic.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baking Christmas cookies with 3 generations of girls! (my mom, myself, and my daughter), Christmas day dinner....roast beef (I know) yorkshire pudding, etc. Every family member can pick whatever they want for their birthday dinner and I make it!
My cooking triumphs
My grandma Ruth's cheesecake, Beef stroganoff turned into chicken stroganoff, homemade enchiladas
My cooking tragedies
Oh....there are so many. I remember having some good friends of my husband's over who are both great cooks. I was making spaghetti sauce from scratch and drinking wine....at the last minute I thought the sauce lacked spice so I dumped in a bunch of dried herbs. Needless to say all we could taste was uncooked crunchy spices.....disgusting.

Awesome Summer Watermelon Salad
Refreshing and delicious! And- it's a little different. Had a girls night and everyone wanted the recipe. I didn't change a thing.

Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls
Wonderful recipe! Quick if you purchased the quick yeast (which my husband did not) but really delicious if you let rise overnight and then bake. I also smeared the butter first and then made twice the amount of cinnamon/brown sugar and sprinkled. Great!
