About this Cook
Grew up in an Italian/American home. My parents both cooked great meals and I learned by watching them. My cooking improved when I was divorced and had an audience of four (my children). I learned other ways of cooking, which were a lot of fun! Still do this kind of creative cooking today.
My favorite things to cook
Eggplant parmesan, Lasagne, Osso Buco, Fish, Stirfries, especially with fresh veggies and a small amount of meat or fish, brown rice, roasted veggies and roasted meats and fish. Seafood is one of my favorites, thus I pursue many ways to find new recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Love to invite my adult children to my home for family lunches and dinners.
My cooking triumphs
My family loves my Italian dishes and always ask for them when I invite them over.
My cooking tragedies
In the first months of my marriage, when I was so young, I prepared a large fish my husband caught. I didn't know you had to remove certain things from it, but we salvaged the time by laughing about it!
