About this Cook
I learned to cook when I was 10 from my best friends 90 year old Italian grandmother, she didn't speak English and I didn't speak Italian, but we didn't need words. We both had a love of food.
My favorite things to cook
I love grains and experimenting with using them in new ways. My spicy macaroni and cheese; because, it seems to make everyone happy.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Sunday waffles for dinner.
My cooking triumphs
Smoking a pork butt for 8 hours and making Pulled Pork Sandwiches with vinegar cole slaw
My cooking tragedies
LOL! To many to name. The most recent one was when I tried to make chocolate chip cookies while on cold medication. I was using a half cup measurer and forgot to double the amount of flour. So I used 1 cup of flour instead of two. The cookies came out soft and gooey and didn't seem to matter to me then. It took a few days for me to realize what I did wrong.

Fluffy Pancakes
It only took 40 years to find a recipe just like my mom use to make. I have tried many recipes, but none of them came close until now. I made these last Sunday and am making them again. I have added to my favorites, my recipe box and printed it out. I never want to lose this recipe. Thank you Kris!!!!
