About this Cook
I'm a hometown girl, born and raised here and now raising two little boys of my own. I work as a department manager for a local department store so I love recipes that are quick, easy and that the kids will like.
My favorite things to cook
Stir fry, fried chicken, chicken wings, bread (from scratch) and cookies with my 3 year old.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Big HUGE family dinners. My dad had 9 bothers and sisters and they each had a least two kids and we all used to gather for Thanksgiving at my Grandmother's house. My favorite story is of one Thanksgiving when we had 25 people for dinner, one can of black olives and one of my cousins put one on each finger! My family still gathers regularly and are all fantastic cooks so we all eat VERY WELL for a couple of days each summer!
My cooking triumphs
The first Thanksgiving Dinner I cooked at my house. It wasn't so much the meal - although it was delicious - but my parents came and my mother-in-law came and all the kids and it was a great day!
My cooking tragedies
Fish and heinz 57 are two things that should never be introduced to each other!

Rich and Creamy Potatoes Au Gratin
I doubled the amount of cream and cheese and did three layers instead of only two. I also put the dish together the night before to the point where you put it in the oven to bake, covered it with foil, let it cool and refrigerated it. I let it warm to room temperature while my ham was baking, took my ham out when it was hot, and baked the potatoes while I was glazing the ham. Potatoes came out when the ham went back in to bake the glaze and everything was perfect and ready all at the same time!

Easy Garlic Chicken
This is even better with a little Parmesan mixed in with the bread crumbs!
