About this Cook
Mother of 4 great kids, who had to learn to cook out of necessity: I was getting married!!! Now, the kitchen is my favorite room in the house. Its where I feel the most comfortable. And, now I am a full-time Baker by trade. Not many people can say they are doing what they love to do in life as a profession. I am soooo lucky!!!!
My favorite things to cook
Anything Italian, which is my heritage, especially Chicken Marsala, which I am known for. Also my 3 cheese stuffed shells, & homemade marinara sauce with Gram's meatballs.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baking with my 11 year-old daughter. Baking for the holidays. Making homemade berry jams every summer with berries I pick myself. I have been doing that for 40 years, & now take my own children berry picking all summer. Living in New Hampshire, we have access to PYO farms that grow all our favorites, so homemade jams are a staple in our home. 100% all natural-can't beat that!!!
My cooking triumphs
My first Thanksgiving Dinner newly married came out AWESOME!!! I knew then I loved to cook!!!! I am not afraid to try new recipes-nothing is off limits!!!!
My cooking tragedies
Can't think of any at the moment

Chef John's Caramel Chicken
Need to flour the chicken, as well as add to sauce at the end-makes for a thicker sauce. Have been making a recipe pretty close to this one & it has NEVER failed me. It was the 1st dish I cooked my boyfriend for dinner, & he saw what a great cook I was. Soon to be married after 8 years!!! Restaurant quality!!!!!
