About this Cook
I am a young professional and I love to experiment with cooking. I picked cooking up from my dad and really expanded on it in College and even more so when I moved out on my own. I am in love and love to experiment with cooking for my boyfriend and family! If there is a reason to be cooking, I am cooking. I have moved from a decent cook to a great cook through the last year, learning how to enhance food with different textures and spices. There are not many things that would scare me to cook or bake.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make: 1. Mexican Dishes 2. Italian Food 3. Dips 4. Appetizers 5. Party Treats 6. Desserts 7. Daily Recipes on
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love to make the food that I had growing up and put a different spin on it. Macaroni and cheese, meatloaf, pies, chicken paprikash, pork chops, etc!

Light Avocado Egg Salad
Delicious!! It's a great change to regular egg salad. The first thing, though, is 15 minutes is too long to let the eggs sit in hot water. 12-13 minutes cooks it properly. Second, I used a whole avocado because we LOVE them. Served it on toasted bread. Yum! Our 18 month old was even a huge fan!

Banana Sour Cream Bread
Yum!! I omitted the nuts and cooked the loaf for 1 hr 5 minutes for the proper doneness. I only made one loaf so I changed the serving size to 8 and it came out perfect.

Tacos in Pasta Shells
We LOVED it!!!! I used taco seasoning, doubled the cream cheese, and used hot taco sauce. I put a cup of taco sauce in the bottom if the baking dish and this kept them from drying out. I don't agree when people say its wrong to rate a recipe a five when you change it because I just altered it to OUR personal tastes but am sure the original recipe would be a five, too. We will definitely be adding this to our repertoire!
