Reviewed Mac and Cheese Carbonara
"I made this for Super Bowl Sunday and was so excited to try it after reading the reviews. I love every meal I've had at Bobby Flay's Mesa Grill in Las Vegas, so had every confidence that this would be mac and cheese nirvana. I was very disappointed. I made it exactly as the recipe reads and with the amount of milk and cheese anticipated a moist, "
Reviewed Base Cranberry Sauce
"I just made the base sauce and it's delicious.I added some grated orange zest. I rated 4 out of 5 stars since the printed recipe omitted the white sugar (about 1/2 cup) that Bobby uses in the video of making the sauce. I love his variations on the cranberry sauce and will try them soon.""
I work at a privaite school, have been there for 11 years. I love it. I work with Kindergarten through 8th grade. It is the best work environment I've ever been in. I also work in network marketing which, besides being a phenomenal business, gives me the opportunity to meet new people as well as offer something great to my old friends.
My passions are being with my friends and family doing anythng fun, cooking, winetasting, a great martini, trying new restaurants, exercising, heart-to-heart talks, laughing til it hurts, a good cry, reading, make-up, surprises, lattes, shopping, going to the beach as much as possible in the summer, holding babies, family dinners and breakfasts, being with the people I love most.
Pet-peeves? People with agendas that interrupt my time and won't take a polite "no" and go away, a slow line at Starbucks, my own disorganization (mod), my "Cookie Hell" oven, bad hair days, running out of anything I need/use regularly-see "mod," losing an email right as I"m ready to send it.
Wanting to have family and friends around the table enjoying each other, the food, drink and atmosphere is a great inspiration to cook. Best of all is when my husband and sons tell me "This is the best _______ you've ever made!" Food Network has given us another way to spend time together because we now cook together and talk about what we saw and want to try to make. We also note the restaurants seen on FN and make it a point to try them when we have the chance.
I love to make delicious main courses, breakfast foods and desserts. My kids think my homemade pancakes and pumpkin bread are the best ever.
Favorite restaurants: Frontera Grille in Chicago, Dos Carlitos in Santa Ynez CA, Mesa Grille in Las Vegas, Zinfandel Grille in Sacramento CA, Anacapa Brewing Co. in Ventura CA
