About this Cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
On Christmas Eve we have a big Italian meal. My mother always had pasta with meatballs and eggplant Parmesan. My husband's family had cold poached salmon with homemade mayonnaise and mangiarini (sic?) In my home we have small Italian appetizers:little puff pastries filled with savory,then cold poached salmon with mayonnaise,next pasta with homemade sauce & meatballs, eggplant Parmesan, then a salad of baby greens with pine nuts, pomegranate seeds & grapefruit vinaigrette, an Italian cheese plate with clementines and nuts,, Christmas cookies,and cakes, then cafe...mmm...buono!
My cooking tragedies
Forgetting I left something on the stove & burning it...

Millie Pasquinelli's Fried Chicken
I never make fried chicken but, wanted to do a traditional American picnic...Wow! Just delicious.I made it again to take to an outdoor concert.My friends loved it! Seems few people fry their own chicken these days...I soaked it in buttermilk before coating the second time around.
