I am a foodie at heart. I love trying new recipes from all ethnicities.

Anything Italian, veal francaise, homemade gnocchi, ravioli, manicotti, unique salads.

My cooking triumphs
Homemade ravioli just like my Grandmother used to make!
My cooking tragedies
Years ago, I made a very complicated and time consuming seafood strudel. I dropped it while attempting to plate it. I think I may have cried! LOL

Cocoa Cherry Pork
The pork and dry rub were excellent. I have to agree with others regarding the sauce. It was to acidic. I did add more preserves (I used black cherry)and oregano and it turned out fine. My husband loved it and he can be very critical. It is very simple. A great week night entrée. I also roasted sweet potatoes. Will be adding to my rotation!

Sicilian Homemade Ricotta Cheese
Fantastic. I will never buy ricotta again. It is so easy and taste is very fresh. I put it on top of penne with marinara, add sugar substitute and top with fresh berries and have even added high quality cocoa to make chocolate ricotta as a dessert. I love it while it is warm! I barely drain mine in the cheesecloth as it results in a more moist, creamy ricotta. I have made homemade ravioli for my southern friends and they said they were to die for! You must try this.

Omelet in a Mug
Surprise,I thought I created this method. I have been making omelets in a cup for years also. I use typically use eggbeaters, one wedge of laughing cow cheese, fresh spinach and sun dried tomato. It is healthy, quick and quick clean up. Great for busy week day mornings.
