About this Cook
I've always loved to cook but since I was a working Mom never seemed to have enough time! Now that I'm retired I love to try new recipes.
My favorite things to cook
Everything! Being from an Italian background I especially like Italian food. I've never been a great 'baker' but now that I have the time I'm working on more desserts,etc.
My cooking triumphs
I'm known for my Lasagna and Gumbo!
My cooking tragedies
One Thanksgiving, as I was making a sweet potato casserole, I mistakenly picked up the sage instead of cinnamon and dumped into the potatoes!! Luckily I realized before I mixed it in and just removed a scoop of potatoes and no one ever knew!

Quick Pickled Eggs and Beets
I was thrilled to find this recipe! My Aunt Eva always made these in the summer whenever we had picnics and I loved the. Probably 60+ years ago! Due to time, divorces, etc. I never got the recipe. This brings back wonderful memories, Thank you!

Southern Macaroni and Cheese Pie
This is so funny! I've been cooking my mac & cheese exactly like this for many, many years! It is absolutely perfect made just as is. My son (who is now grown and married) requests it every time they are coming home for dinner. Delicious!
