About this Cook
I cook for my family of 4. I love to cook lasagna--we are pasta lovers and it was great! I also love to experiment with new things for the family.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make lasagna--I have a cookbook I bought from my sister's school and it has a great lasagna recipe in it. I've modified it over the years and have added wine to it for a little better flavor on the sauce. I also love to make oven fried's healthier than conventional fried chicken.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite cooking tradition would have to be Thanksgiving. I'm usually the first one up. I go in, make the stuffing, clean the bird, stuff it and then go join the rest of the family for parade watching. Periodically throughout the day I'll baste the bird with olive oil.
My cooking triumphs
The first turkey I ever made for my husband was a cooked in 4 1/2 hours and we had so much left over, we were eating turkey for weeks!!
My cooking tragedies
Sugar cookies are not meant to be hard!!

Mexican Cucumber Salad
This recipe has just the right amount of "bite" without being overpowering. My husband thought it would be a good side dish for fried chicken. It was so easy to make and fast! I'll be making it again for sure.
