About this Cook
I've been married to my hubby for 32 years. We are now empty nesters. Our 2 kids have flown the coop. I've been a stay at home mom, making it easy to perfect our favorite dishes. We love to entertain. Other than my family, my favorite love is cooking, and feeding people gives me great joy.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make authentic Italian dishes but I also love to barbecue. Actually I do all the prep and my hubby does the barbecuing. I also love to make appetizers. I don't do a lot of baking, but my desert specialties for company are tiramisu and deep fried cheesecake(which is too die for).
My favorite family cooking traditions
Don't really have any. I guess I'll have to work on making my own.
My cooking triumphs
I put on a cocktail and hors d'oeuvres engagement party for my daughter with 50 guests. I love to make appetizers but making fancy little appies was new territory for me. I spent weeks experimenting with different recipes and the whole week before the party making ones that I could freeze. I also never made cocktails before and served up bellinis and crantinis. It just about killed me but the party was a huge success.
My cooking tragedies
Too many to mention but the most memorable was making a butternut squash ravioli using won ton skins for company. I made them during the day stacking them on a platter. When it was time to cook them, they were all stuck together into a blob. It was a disaster.

Chile Relleno Casserole
I was a little disappointed with lack of flavor in this recipe. I guess I was expecting it to taste a lot like chile rellenos, but it came nowhere near it.

Zucchini Brownies
Wow! I'm so proud of myself. I'm a non baker and this tasted like it came from a baking pro. Pat on the back for me. I followed the recipe exactly, except I left out a little more than a 1/4 cup of sugar, just because I don't like things super sweet. I was really worried when I was mixing it all up because it wasn't really a batter like I thought it would be, I had to press it out with a spatula to get it even in the pan. It came out perfectly. You would never know that there's zucchini in there and no eggs. This one is a keeper for sure!

Awesome and Easy Creamy Corn Casserole
This was absolutely delicious. The best corn casserole ever! I added a tablespoon of sugar to the recipe, but other than that it was perfect. I loved the stiffer texture of this recipe.
