About this Cook
I'm a mother to 2 boys, 3 and 5. I work part time at a bookstore which is really fun. My husband works long hours and I love to cook for him. I am very fond of my slow cooker...I make the BEST pork tacos!
My favorite things to cook
roasts, soups, mexican food, cakes
My favorite family cooking traditions
I live next door to my mom and dad, and growing up I was very much into cooking. I loved helping my mom in the kitchen and coming up with my own recipes. I am Sicilian and my grandmother lived here in the Bay Area before she died. Every Sunday we would go to her house and she would make us the best spaghetti ever!!!!
My cooking triumphs
My pork tacos! They are amazing!!!!
My cooking tragedies
too many, but I haven't had any in a while!

Perfect Lobster Bisque
My mother in law was coming over for dinner and I wanted to make something special. I went to the local asian supermarket and bought a live Maine lobster to use. I followed the recipe to a T minus the wine. My mother in law is a recovering alcoholic and won't even eat things made with alcohol. So I substituted with chicken broth. This was by far the best lobster bisque I have ever had! We served it exactly as you said, with hot bread and butter, and a salad. Absoulutely wonderful!!!!! If I could give it more than 5 stars, I would.

Country Apple Dumplings
WOW!!! I literally closed my eyes as I savored the first bite of this delicious dessert. I served it hot and with vanilla ice cream. YUMMY!! We were all blown away! It was so rich and buttery! Next time, I'll probably cut the sugar, butter, and dew in half and I'm sure it will be just as good but with half the fat. Will MOST DEFINETELY make again and again!! FANTASTIC RECIPE!!!!!!!!
