About this Cook
I am a food addict and don't plan on recovering any time soon! I truly enjoy cooking and baking, though I still have much to learn. In addition to kitchen time, reading is one of my favorite hobbies. Also, I am the oldest of seven children, and my husband and I spend a lot of time with both of our families, because our parents and siblings live close. Finally, this is my second year in the Allrecipes Brand Ambassador program. This means that I volunteer to promote Allrecipes, because I love it!
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy trying new foods, but I often cook chicken dishes, because they are fairly easy and cheap. I really enjoy baking, but my husband does not like many sweets (much to my chagrin!) So, I often volunteer to bake a dessert whenever we spend time with other people or attend a church activity.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite cooking/baking traditions are those that occur the days before holidays. My mother and I sometimes stay up all night baking together (usually Greek & Jewish recipes handed down from my grandmothers), and it is truly a bonding time.
My cooking triumphs
Most of the recipes from Allrecipes lead to cooking success stories. Thank you to all the members of AR that have contributed recipes and reviews. They have been quite helpful!
My cooking tragedies
When I first began cooking, I had several poor attempts at using the broiler, most of which ended in a fire! I am happy to report that I have finally learned how to use it, after several tries. :)

Honey-Balsamic Chicken
The flavor of this chicken is great - slightly sweet but with savory herbs, and definitely not too heavy. The only change I made was to mix the marinade in the ziplock bag so that I didn't need to clean an additional bowl. I'll be making this again!

Real Hummus
I love this recipe! Only changes I made were to make my own tahini with the recipe from this site, use 3T of tahini, and roast garlic / red pepper in the oven.

Lemon Garlic Chicken
I've been making this all week for my dinner! So good! And easy too! It has perfect flavor (not too overpowering), with a moist tender inside and a crisp garlic crust.
