Saturday afternoon I was completely speechless, surprised, and shocked.  I think by the look on my face everyone would agree!  Let me start from the beginning..... A few months ago Marianne had decided she had so much fun at the Vegas Round Up she would host another So Cal gathering.  When she… MORE

About this Cook
About me...well cooking has been apart of my life since I can remember. My grandma used to make EVERYTHING from scratch. My favorite pastime when visiting, was watching her make cinnamon rolls. I didn't start a passion for cooking, however, until I started dating the man I would marry. He loved to eat and I thought the way to his heart has got to be through his stomach, right?!?!? Well, it worked! We had our first child Dec. 2013 and I am looking forward to making his baby food and finding out what he likes and doesn't like. I can't wait to teach him how to cook, but at the same time don't want to rush his growing up either! :) Cooking relaxes me, like a good book. I love making a mess but hate cleaning it up!
My favorite things to cook
Its always evolving and forever changing! I've found I have a knack for finding really great appetizers for special events and I'd rather cook than bake. I love pairing cheeses with wine and having people over to try them.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My great grandmother was from Germany and made some amazing dishes. The two I remember helping her with the most were her meat balls and German chocolate cake. I've started my own traditions with my husband now, I love making Irish Soda Bread each year for St. Patty's Day, a nod to his family history. We've also decided to take on Thanksgiving, so far we've been quite successful!
My cooking tragedies
Definitely have had my share!

Alfredo Sauce
Quick, easy and delicious recipe!! I added a bit more parmesan cheese because we love it and a little pepper. I won't be buying jarred alfredo sauce anymore.

Delicious Black Bean Burritos
Made this recipe to thank our vegetarian friend for helping us out around our house. He LOVED it! He raved about it so much that I ended up making a burrito for myself and I was very pleasantly surprised. The changes I made was using seasoned black beans and I added a can of rotel to the mix. This recipe would be great for lunch at work, can't wait to make it again!

Fajita Seasoning
At the last minute my husband decided he wanted fajitas for dinner last night. I found this recipe and decided to give it a try. However, it was just okay for us. It didn't really have the fajita seasoning taste I was looking for. Easy to make but still on the hunt for a go to fajita seasoning recipe.
