There is one particular sauce that I cannot seem to get enough of and would like to try more and that is the Tobasco brand pepper sauce. Everyone the world over loves this sauce and this sauce seems to love most dishes. My husband and co-workers give an eyebrow up when they learn I smother my… MORE

About this Cook
I'm a 32 year old wife, mother and environmental educator.Food is amazing to me. My friends think I have a genuine relationship with any meal I eat. My husband brings good southern food to the table and I bring what I've learned of Italian cooking into the household. My mother never cooked, so I learned out of necessity. I'm told I'm an excellent baker. I learned from my Great Grandma Frabott who's mother was from Florence, Italy. I'm very proud of my Italian and Scotch/Irish heritage and the wonderful recipes that have been passed down to me.
My favorite things to cook
Multi-Cheese Stuffed Shells in Marinara Sauce; Carrot Cake Cupcakes; Fish (It is really easy to cook after you get over feeling like you're going to mess it up); and Chicken Dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Great Grandma's family is from Florence, Italy and they passed down some fabulous Italian recipes....I love Pizzelles at christmas time!
My cooking triumphs
I know it's funny, but.....carmelizing apples without overcooking them.....and pork chops without making them like a thin pork jerky.
My cooking tragedies
The roast chicken that ended up on the driveway (oh it was a horrible accident), carmelized apples that somehow got left cooking too long. I'm sure I'll add more to this list.

Cheddar Baked Chicken
I made this recipe awhile back after searching for just ingredients I had on hand. I didn't feel like grocery shopping that day, lol. It was awesome! Definitely throwing this in my recipe box. The hubby liked it too. The rice crispies gave it that perfect crunchy outer coating.

Tostones (Fried Plantains)
I've had these in Miami and also made them with my spanish class a long long time ago and was happy to find this recipe again here.....I did make a few changes to make this like the fried plantains my boyfriend had when he was in jamaica. I fried them in peanut oil and used Seasoned Salt and just a tiny tiny bit of cayenne pepper to season them. Next time I might do a touch of flour with that same seasoning. It was very very good and the cayenne added just that extra season I think it needed. Thanks for this recipe!
