About this Cook
Grew up in South Boston, learning to cook most everything from my Dad, he was very creative. I have a son with milk product allergies so cooking from scratch is a must in my house, improvising should be my middle name!!
My favorite things to cook
big meals, especially italian! Love to bake, quick breads don't last very long in my house! Starting to use the Crock Pot alot lately too!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Chex mix at Christmas time, Making a big batch of beef jerky when my son goes back to college after a home visit. Making something new for my milk allergic son that typically would have milk products in it!
My cooking triumphs
Making something milk free that tastes just as good as if it had milk or butter or cheese in it.
My cooking tragedies
Toffee...no matter how much I've tried, I can't get it right :(

This was excellent!! I added a handful of chopped sun dried tomatoes for color. Definitely make again...and again and again :)

Cream Cheese Tart Shells
Tried this recipe last night, made a full size quiche, this recipe tastes exactly like a certain national brand of frozen quiche (Nancy's) which is delicious! Will use this recipe from now on!! Absolutely terrific!!

Grilled Mediterranean Greek Pizza with Sundried Tomato Chicken Sausage
I grill pizza on the grill all the time! It's amazing how much the pizza ends up tasting like it came out of a brick oven pizzaria!! I highly recommend everyone try to cook their pizza on the grill, I am sure it won't be the last time you do it!
