About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I LOVE baking! I make incredible brownies and cookies. I also make a mean alfredo sauce! I am a newer cook, but I certainly do get lots of compliments on my food!
My favorite family cooking traditions
When I was younger, I went down to Long Island to my Grandma's for Thanksgiving - every woman in the family made something special, it is still my favorite holiday.
My cooking triumphs
Every day I have a new one! I can make great homemade pasta with alfredo sauce that is to die for. It takes a very long time, but the reactions I get are so worth it!
My cooking tragedies
When I was in high school, I had to make crepes for a French class project. I set my mom's kitchen on fire. It was easily put out, and only on the stovetop, but to this day that story gets told quite a bit by my mother.

Chili Rellenos Casserole
I made a few of the recommended alterations: I used a 12 oz can of condensed milk instead of the condensed/regular milk combo called for in the recipe. I also used more cheese than called for as I like cheesy mexican food. I used 3 eggs instead of 2 (the mix was very watery and other comments said use 3). AND I used enchilada sauce vs. tomato. This was just OK for me. I think I would make it again but alter it to be more of a dip instead of a meal. DEFINITELY either use a smaller pan or more chiles because I used 15oz chiles and only had enough for one layer.

Sophie's Zucchini Bread
This bread was pretty good. I made the recipe as is. The batter I thought was much better than the bread was when it came out. Next time I'll sub out the walnuts for chocolate chip for a sweeter bread.

Zucchini Alfredo
I did take the other reader's advice and added onion and doubled the garlic. Still was extremely bland. Also, I would sub out milk for half and half or cream and double. Would be slightly improved with some shrimp. This was really just not good, and was nothing like a true alfredo.
