About this Cook
I'm a polish-american living in Italy! My mom taught me to cook at age 10. I will always love the Better Homes and Gardens cookbook I inherited from my mom! But, now I enjoy learning to cook the "true" italian way!
My favorite things to cook
Italian anything, chocolate anything...I love to cook and hate to bake (unless I am craving a warm cookie)
My cooking triumphs
Every single Italian I have made my famous Indonesian sautee has gone crazy for this dish. It is a sure hit! I make a mean cioccolata calda and I love to make lasagna with real italian ricotta and fresh's amazing!
My cooking tragedies
Learning to cook meat in Italy has been a challenge. We have had to eat overcooked, tough meat one too many times!

Winter Lentil Vegetable Soup
This was absolutely wonderful!!!!!!! I followed the advice of another review by making the recipe with more lentils and liquids and it lasted us for several meals. We love to heat up soup for lunch with a grilled cheese sandwich or bread during the cold winter months. Here is the review that I followed: "to take out some of the starch I rinsed & drained the lentils. I followed the amount of ingredients suggested by the tool except for these items: 1 1/2 c green lentils & 1/2 c red lentils, 3 stalks celery, 1 large onion, 4 c chicken broth & 6 cup veg. broth, many more cloves garlic 1/2 crushed 1/2 chopped, finally 1 tsp hot curry powder."

Robin's Best Ever Hummus
Ok, so this is really good and a little spicy from the garlic! I didn't have tahini in the house but really wanted some hummus, so I substituted it with 1 tsp. of no sugar peanut is so good! Thanks for the recipe!
