About this Cook
I am mother of two sons, ages 9 and 7. My husband and I work full time, which is why quick and easy is an important factor. The 7 year old is a picky eater. I hail from Connecticut but have lived in Maryland for over 18 years. I learned to cook from both of my parents, my grandmother and aunts/great aunts. Dad is Italian, and Mom is French Canadian. My mother in law is a talented cook and she and I exchange ideas and recipes often.
My favorite things to cook
A well balanced (meat, vegetable, starch) meal that pretty much everyone enjoys. Of course my favorite things to cook include my favorite things to eat.
My favorite family cooking traditions
On the Italian side it's eggplant parmesean and angenette cookies all the way. My maternal side includes a variety of special foods with pies and roasts topping the list.
My cooking triumphs
Buffalo chicken wing and hot crab dips are always a hit.
My cooking tragedies
Liquidy lemon meringue pie.

White Sauce
Excellent white sauce. I doubled recipe and added grated parmesean cheese, italian seasoning and black pepper. I loved that I was able to refrigerate leftover sauce and use in a different recipe a couple nights later. It did thicken when cooled but reheated was back to original consistnecy.

My family loves these and the ones made with the chocolate kiss candies and M&Ms pressed onto the top.
