About this Cook
I'm a mom to an amazing boy and the partner of a kind and hungry man. I recently left my high-stress career to return to a simpler, yet exhausting, life of domestic engineering. Family, friends and health are my new priority.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake ~ anything & everything. Also, trying different fish and seafood seems to be a new objective for the family.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I come from a family of Sicilians & Ukrainians, who love to feed the masses. I've learned from watching my mother and grandmother, how to entertain & stuff the bellies of my guests with a variety of dishes.
My cooking triumphs
The day I made my first pie crust. It was incredible. Still something I struggle with from time-to-time as it's definitely a talent to continually whip together a perfect dough. I have yet to master this skill.
My cooking tragedies
Too many to list!!

Crackle Top Molasses Cookies
Everyone loves these, including my partner who would typically choose any other type of cookie before eating a ginger one. I think they taste best 2-3 days after baking.

Holy schmoly, this was out of this world delicious. I latticed the top for presentation and it turned out superb!

Easy Peanut Butter Fudge
Good recipe, but can be great if you take Marg Buchannan's recommendation regarding microwaving. Yumm!
