Hello everyone! My name is Lori Pedroncelli. I am from Ohio originally, but lived in New Mexico for 3 years, before moving back several years ago.
Like everyone here, I LOVE to cook. I used to feel that I didn't have time, but now I am learning to make time. It's so important to me to sit down to dinner together as a family. My favorite part of the day.
Since I started working from home four years ago, it really has assisted in my flexibility to prepare a healthy, delicious dinner every night.
I feel like I still have alot I can learn, especially when it comes to baking.
I was married in September, 2006 to my best friend, Estevan. My husband and I share a love of cooking together. I really enjoy planning out the week and deciding what we will try next, and it takes the panic out of "what's for dinner?"
I also try to do OAMC (once a month cooking) method when I can.
I love the food netork, and I really love Rachel Ray and her cookbooks. I have recently been cooking alot out of her "big orange book". It is my newest favorite. I am abit of a cookbook collector, and recently purchased a larger bookcase to store all of them in my kitchen. However, I tend to rely on recipezaar first now when I am looking for something in particular. I love this site and it's community of users!
In my free time, I enjoy scrapbooking and would love to devote more time to it as a hobby. It is a great creative release for me. Estevan and I love to travel as much as we can as well. We were blessed with our first son 2 years ago (Grayson), and are enjoying being parents. We also have 3 furry kids, Bailey, (german shepard/ blue heeler) and 2 bichons - Bella and Jack.
We love to entertain and typically host Thanksgiving and Christmas at our house for family. I enjoy putting the menus together and my husband is a huge help in the preparation! Couldn't do it without him.
Mexican, Italian, Chinese...I am always trying out new recipes, and rarely make the same things twice. Chicken and dumplings is probably my specialty dish.
We find ourselves eating out less and less, not only to save money, but also because I think that we can often make things just as tasty as well as much healthier.
It is great to enjoy a good meal with a good glass of wine to complement it. Enjoy all types.
One of our favorite places is Las Vegas. So many great places, but Mon Ami Gabi, the french steakhouse in the Paris hotel, is always a favorite stop. It is directly across from the Bellagio fountains and a has a wonderful patio for dining. Great food, romantic environment. We highly recommend!
Thanks for stopping by and taking time to learn more about me. Hope that you will try and review my recipes. (I am trying to add more). Feel free to say hello! Love to meet new people.
