About this Cook
Hubby and I always had the agreement that the first one home made the dinner. After a lifetime of making sure I was always home after him, I retired in 2003 and it all caught up to me. I am fortunate because he is an excellent cook and taught me as soon as we came home from our honeymoon many years ago. Having a lot more time to devote to cooking and baking, it is my desire to keep improving. Our modest vegetable garden affords me the opportunity of growing fresh veggies in the summer and canning a lot for winter use.
My favorite things to cook
Since I am Italian/American, I love to cook anything Italian. Most of my recipes are authentic from my Mother and Grandmother. Actually, I like cooking anything and Hubby is a great guinea pig and will try whatever i prepare.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We enjoy the Christmas tradition of making cookies and preparing for all the major holidays.
My cooking triumphs
Anytime I prepare food and someone tells me it's excellent.
My cooking tragedies
Most of my tragedies happen when I'm not paying attention to what I am doing and forget to add a major ingredient, like sugar or baking powder, to a recipe.

This was incredibly delicious. It was a little hairy working with the phyllo dough. Wasted 4 or 5 sheets. I did bake it for the full 50 minutes and it was a beautiful golden brown. It was a little confusing reading and understanding the instructions but I watched the video. Thanks for sharing this recipe have a real winner.

Slow Cooker Baby Back Ribs
First time for doing ribs in the slow cooker. WOW! They were fall off the bones tender...even that little piece on the end that always turns out dry. I did use beer instead of water for an added flavor. If I did have anything negative to say it would be that it could have used a little more flavor but the beauty of this recipe is it's begging to be tweaked with additional spices. I cooked it on low for 8 hours and only baked it for 10 minutes with the BBQ sauce. Still moist and delish. Thanks, Nora, for sharing.

Just made these today. They were extremely easy to make. I didn't use the shortening with the chocolate. I find the chocolate coating is thicker without it. If I had anything negative to say it would be that the peanut butter filling was a little on the soft side but, then again, maybe that's the way it should be. I also made them a little smaller than the recipe calls for. Hence, I got a gazillion of them. They were wo-o-onderfully delicious.
