About this Cook
I am a mother of one (well two if you count my husband) I am a certified chef and have been cooking professionally for about 5 years. I love finding great recipes and trying them out.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook traditional Italian and french food..something about the way the flavors mesh is really amazing. I like cooking all kinds of old world foods actually. Im getting more into spanish and hungarian lately so if anyones got any ideas let me know!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother and father are both from ireland, so every year we get to do a big St. Patricks day feast...cornbeef, brown bread, cabbage..yummm
My cooking triumphs
I have never had the patience for candymaking and I often make fatal errors but last year I made like 15 lbs of irish cream fudge for christmas presents. no one complained so I guess that could be counted as a triumph!
My cooking tragedies

Gramma Brown's Corn Chowder
some previous reviewers are saying this chowder is is the way i did it and it was not bland at all...sub half and half for milk, use good quality chicken stock (wolfgang puck makes a decent inexpensive one)I added a splash of low vinager high heat hot sauce and some smoked paprika. also instead of a flour paste(?) I made a cooked roux with the grease from the bacon probably about a quater cup of flour or maybe more for a rich chowder. The way the recipe reads it is very thin. add plenty of salt too. try and see whats up..yum yumm very good base recipe though
