About this Cook
I've always loved cooking! How tastes and textures go together, being able to not just make something and put it on the table, but to cook well and have fun with it.
My favorite things to cook
Anything (except breakfast eggs, can't stand those things...)
My favorite family cooking traditions
I'm Italian and it shows, the Christmas Eve dinners at my Aunt Lena's were the best.
My cooking triumphs
Realizing that I can cook and can only get better at it.
My cooking tragedies
One time when I was 14 I tried to make a chocolate cake but it had coffee in it, my sister doesn't like coffee so I just omitted it. Bad thing was that it was the main liquid in the recipe and I didn't think it would affect things at the time. That and I would confuse baking soda with baking powder...

Raspberry Chocolate Smoothie
A perfect dessert smoothie. I'm going to try using carob sorbet and see how that goes. Thank you so much CHEF17411

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread II
So good! I found this as a result of looking for the Banana Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake sold at Starbucks. This is even better. If you add an extra 1/2 cup of chocolate chips and bake for an extra 5 minutes it's phenomenal!
