About this Cook
I am a research coordinator in the Denver area and I have loved to cook since I was a child with my Dad. He and I love to try out new recipes and experiment with variations on old ones. I swear he must have been a chef in his past life ;)
My favorite things to cook
Italian dishes are my guilty pleasure and recipes that involve a lot of fresh produce (so we can utilize our garden better in the summer time).
My favorite family cooking traditions
Sunday Pizza night. Nearly every Sunday since I was in middle school, my parents and I make a pizza for Sunday dinner.
My cooking triumphs
Making an awesome Cioppino (recipe from this site) for my family and friends on new years eve.
My cooking tragedies
Making pasta the first time. I hand rolled it (I had no machine) and it was too thick and turned out horribly. I will try again when I get a pasta making machine.

Doughnut Bread Pudding
So easy and clever! Not too mushy, definitely not dry, and a scoop of vanilla ice cream takes it to the next level of awesome!

Savory Italian Sausage Sauce
Doubled the recipe and added some sun dried tomatoes. Absolutely fabulous with a little zip from the red pepper flakes.
