About this Cook
Enjoy cooking, love cooking gadgets and have such a large collection of spices I have to store them in a huge plastic bin. Cooking is therapeutic for me. But of course eating it's the best part.
My favorite things to cook
I love to try new recipes. I'm whipping up something new all the time.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I learned great Italian recipes passed on my my Italian Mom and Grandma and awesome baking recipes from my Norwegian Bestamor, They were both awesome cooks.
My cooking triumphs
Still working on this.
My cooking tragedies
The Greek Pastichio that I worked so hard on; it came out perfect but I accidentally put the pyrex casserole dish on a hot stovetop burner and it spattered all over the kitchen. Casserole and glass shards everywhere. Big disaster!!

Linguine with White Clam Sauce I
I really enjoyed this! I did skip the extra 1/4 cup clam juice but I felt the juice from the minced clams was enough. I cheated on the parsley too by using dried, but if you have it, I'm sure fresh would be better. My favorite things about this recipe was how easy it was and that it uses very little oil - so it's not fatty or greasy. I'll definitely make this again.

Mexican Turkey Burgers
We really liked these very flavorful Mexican burgers. Definitely serve them on wraps as the recipe indicates because the texture is too crumbly for a bun - it was a little challenging keeping them together, so I found them a little messy but definitely worth it! We happen to like corn so I used the whole 15 oz can which gives you extra to put on the wrap, but you could either cut that in half or eliminate it entirely. Also I chose to use flavored tortillas (jalapeno/cilantro) instead of plain flour ones for extra kick.

Eggplant Parmesan II
Excellent; this tastes even better than the fried stuff. I found I needed 2 large eggplants and 4 eggs in my case; and also needed to brown the slices a little more than 5 minutes per side to actually get them 'brown'. Makes GREAT leftovers too.
