About this Cook
My husband and I have been married for 18 years. We have two beautiful children, a daughter (16) and a son (14). I grew up in Wisconsin, the youngest of 7 children. I work full-time in the printing industry, from the comforts of my home. My husband is from Italy, from a town called Aprilia, which is about 30 minutes from Rome. I learned a lot about Italian cooking from his mother. She came to stay with us for 7 months when each of our children were born. My husband and I both enjoy cooking, and we prepare meals at home 6-7 nights a week. One of us usually runs the kids to their activities, and the other stays home and cooks. We make a great team!

My favorite things to cook
I have a major sweet tooth and love to bake! Muffins, breads, cookies, cakes. My husband bakes homemade bread a couple of times a week. We eat a LOT of pasta, and enjoy making fresh pasta for Sunday dinner as a special treat!
My favorite family cooking traditions
When I was a young girl, my job was to do most of the candy and cookie making around the holidays. I still make the same things I made when I was a little girl, and am trying to hand down these traditions to my children as well. Every Thanksgiving, I make a big traditional Thanksgiving dinner. Both of our families live far away, so we always invite our friends or neighbors over to share this meal.
My cooking triumphs
Too many to count. Probably making yeast breads. After a couple of failures, I finally got it right.

Ham and Split Pea Soup Recipe - A Great Soup
Delicious soup! I've been making it like this for years, usually just eyeballing the ingredients. I made as directed, but added some sliced carrots to the onion, celery, garlic saute as well. Turned out perfect and hubby and the kids gobbled it right up!

Brats, Onions, and Apples
I grew up eating brats with beer and onions, but never heard of adding apples to them. The brats were tasty, but I'm not sure the apples really added anything. We enjoyed these, but next time I'll skip the apples.

Cilantro-Lime Dressing
Amazing! I was looking for ways to use up some freshly squeezed lime juice that I had on hand, and I'm SO glad that I found this recipe. This dressing took my simple, ordinary lunch salad over the top. I'm going to make main dish salads with grilled chicken for dinner tonight, just so I can use this dressing again. Yum!
