My mom's cooking in Italy
About this Cook
I have been cooking with my mom since I was about 13. My mother's food is soo good, that almost everyone licks the plate clean when they are done. She cooks really healthy, and it shows with the way we look and feel. Interestingly enough, nothing we make tastes the same, even when we make the same dish. We both have our own distinct styles and while what I make is great, that is until you have hers. Both she and I cook by instinct and not usually recipes, so I joined this site to see what would happen if I followed a recipe alot of people like and for some inspiration regarding new foods.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make favorite foods healthier. I enjoy going out to eat and recreating some of the dishes at home using less oil, salt..whatever. I like to make salads, dips and salad dressing. I also enjoy cooking with chicken and fish. My guilty pleasure is cookies.
My cooking tragedies
For some reason or another, I have never been able to make rice.

Banana Banana Bread
I used three cups of mashed bananas, white whole wheat flour, smart balance instead of butter. I added a tsp of vanilla extract and a tsp of cinnamon. I was disappointed because I thought it would be a lot more moist than it actually was. My boyfriend really liked it, but I didn't think it was as great as everyone said.

Cranberry Sauce
This was fantastic. I used Stevia instead of sugar and made my own juice with a florida navel orange in the blender. It was so simple and so flavorful, especially with a little orange zest added.. I am so happy I found this recipe.
