About this Cook
Im 57 and live on a farm just outside a very small town. I have 3 horses and I ride a motorcyle. I'm part French Canadian and Yugoslave.
My favorite things to cook
I love ethnic food especially spicy. I also love sweet desserts.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The great thing about my family is that we are very diversified, we like it all. Pot lucks are always a wonderful surprise.
My cooking triumphs
Christmas for 30 in a house that was under full renovations. The stove stoped working but my brothers quickly disconnected the old stove, moved the new one in and we got the meal back on track. Everyone had a wonderful time and great memories.
My cooking tragedies
Basically the same story as the one above.

Mostaccioli with Spinach and Feta
Wow. I used two large garlic cloves instead of 1, then I added 1 whole can of "La San Marzano" tomatoes (once you have had these you will never buy anything else) and I used only 4 oz of Macedonia Feta (extra creamy Feta) and added 1/4 cup of homemade pesto. 6 strips of crumbled crisp bacon. I don't really like Penn I find it too big & rubbery so I replaced it with a medium Fricelli pasta, it's small rolled ovals. Some of them open up when cooked. I added the cooked pasta and spinach and cooed it until the spinach was just wilted. Believe me there was nothing boring about this meal, it was amazing.
