About this Cook
Recently relegated to a wheelchair, I've retired early from the Federal Government. I am a widow. I have 3 grown children and 5 of the most beautiful grandkids a person could ever want.
My favorite things to cook
I am a professional cake decorator. I love making pasta from scratch and trying to replicate my sicilian nana's recipes. They were all in her head.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holiday dinners have several sides that go back at least 5 generations. It's important to me to see those recipes survive past my generation.
My cooking triumphs
Probably some of my Italian dishes and my decorated cakes.
My cooking tragedies
most anything asian except a simple stir fry.

Baked Butternut Squash
Loved it! (Just as written) Did you know you can make amish pumpkin pies from these squash? For every 4 cups of mashed squash, add 1 c. evap milk, dash of salt, and 2 eggs and 2 TB flour. Sprinkle the top liberally with cinnamon.

Yummy Garlic Croutons
I've been making these for 20 yrs. I don't bake mine, I fry them after tossing them with EVOO, garlic pepper and parmesan cheese. I use them on salads, soups and to top mac n cheese casserole. Most of, they are a delicious snack. Made with brioche they are to die for.
