About this Cook
I am a stay at home mom; we have three kids- 7, 5, and 3. I love to read and play with the kids; and I have a passion for cooking. Christmas 2006 I ended up cooking Christmas dinner for my smaller family, and was completely terrified about it- but discovered a love for cooking. And I've never looked back. Since then I'm constantly looking for new recipes to try and finding recipes to make everything homemade. I love to bake bread and make pasta. My biggest problem is that there are not enough meals in a week to cook everything I want.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook Italian and Mexican dishes. And any kind of baking!!! I have to limit my baking dishes to one a week or we are all going to start gaining too much weight!
My favorite family cooking traditions
We don't really have any.... our family is kind of at a point where we're creating new traditions.
My cooking tragedies
I'm not good with a knife!

Pork Chops with Blackberry Port Sauce
Great Recipe!! I very rarely make the same recipe twice, just because there are so many different thing to try. But my husband actually requested this be made again- we're already thinking up different dishes to use the sauce in. I added 2 cloves of minced garlic to the onions, and used grape juice/lime juice & zest in place of the port wine.

Donut Muffins
Wonderful Treat!! I doubled the recipe and it made 48 mini muffins. I added about 2 tsp. of cinnamon to the batter and I did not double the nutmeg. Will make again!
