About this Cook
I have 3 children, boy 12, boy 8, girl 8 and I live near Boston. I began cooking when I was 10 because it interested me. I learned alot of tricks from my mother. I enjoy cooking for people. I used to watch Julia Child as a kid.
My favorite things to cook
Since I have kids I cook alot of simple things but my favorite things to cook are: chicken parmigiana, crock-pot chili, enchiladas, desserts.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I am of Albanian ancestry and my grandmother made the most incredible scallion pies. She made her phyllo dough from scratch. Once in awhile I make the pie but I use already-made dough.
My cooking triumphs
When I made a pie crust without it breaking.
My cooking tragedies
Trying to make pizza dough. Also, I made a cake once that opened up on top like an earthquake.

Favorite Banana Bread
I was very disappointed. I expected it to be moist, but it was pretty dry. I won't be using this recipe again.

Orange Loaf
My friend came over for coffee and she really liked this bread. It was extremely moist, but I think if I made it again, I would add cranberries and not as much of the orange rind. Also, I think I would add a cream cheese frosting to it. I tend to like thinks sweeter, but overall, this bread was very good.
