About this Cook
I love allrecipes. It's my go-to-site for everything I cook or bake. It's also a community of people I trust who care-about food and other people. This is the 1st site I go to in the morning and retreat to all day long.
My favorite things to cook
I do not eat desserts but i love to bake for others. If I had to pick a favorite thing to cook it would be pasta.
My favorite family cooking traditions
When my mother was alive we would all get together every Wednesday for dinner but every week was someone elses turn to cook.
My cooking triumphs
I have several "signature dishes" that I have made up over the years.
My cooking tragedies
I am terrible at making instant mashed potatoes. I don't know why because the directions are so simple. Its a shame too because I love them.

I thought it would be bland because of the amount of liquid but it wasn't. I recommend drizzling some lemon olive oil on each before serving. It made it a lot better.

Chicken Scampi II
My husband loved this recipe. I made it as written except I squirted more lemon on mine because I love lemon. Other than that I thought it was good. It definitely needs rice or pasts or even bread to sop up the delicious butter herb sauce.
