About this Cook
I love to cook and bake and learn new cooking techniques. Check out my recipe blog at and my facebook page:
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy using fresh and flavorful ingredients to prepare meals for and with my family. Many times I will tweak a recipe to our liking, but I have just recently started experimenting with flavors to make signature recipes, however this is something very new to me.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My daughter loves to bake and we enjoy creating new things together in the kitchen.
My cooking tragedies
It is a running joke in my household to expect burned rolls on a holiday haha

Spinach, Mushroom, and Ricotta Fettuccine
I made this exactly as stated in the recipe. It was good as is, but lacked a little flavor for me. To give a little depth to this dish I sauteed up some fresh garlic and thyme and added it. This addition made it more flavorful for me. I love, love, love how easy this is to make!

Strawberry Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies
These cookies are very good. The strawberry flavor came through deliciously. Be sure you use strawberry yogurt SPREAD as stated in the recipe - Brummel and Brown has a good one. I'm not sure I like the olive oil in these. I am going to try making them again with vegetable oil or maybe coconut oil to see the difference, but I do recommend giving these a try. They weren't too sweet either. I think if you are finding them too sweet it might be a result of using something other than the yogurt spread. I think using the spread is key to getting these cookies just right. I love how they have a little crunch but at the same time they are soft and chewy. I HIGHLY recommend adding white chocolate chips to these. It really brings out the flavors and be sure to add at least a 1/2 teaspoon of salt to the dry ingredients.

Chef John's BLT Pasta
I made this with sour cream the first time and we really loved it. I added sun-dried tomatoes for a little more flavor. I wanted to try it with the creme fraiche, so I made it again. We preferred the tang the sour cream added for sure, so I'll be making it again and again but with the sour cream. I omitted the lemon as we didn't care for it in this dish.
