About this Cook
I'm a freelance journalist living in Brooklyn with my wonderful fiance. We have two cats, Ricky Martin and Antonia, that help us run the house (Ricky especially loves to observe the goings-on in the kitchen). Cooking for others makes me feel happy and I'm always looking for new, yummy recipes.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook with cheese. My homemade alfredo sauce has been hailed as "the best" my guests have ever tasted (on multiple occasions with different guests). My Thanksgiving specialty is a big batch of cheesy-onion potatoes. Cheddar, parm, feta, bring on the cheese!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother is from the south and always cooks the best meals. My mother's specialty is her layered Italian Creme Cake. It's a touch too rich for me, but everyone LOVES it.
My cooking triumphs
In 2010, I cooked my very first Thanksgiving meal --- all by myself. In the past, I normally contribute a dish or, another year, my fiance and I cooked for everyone. This year, we were several states away from our families and my fiance had to work all day. So I was left to cook the entire meal on my own. I'm happy to say it was a success!
My cooking tragedies
I once tried to cook some of Paula's curry-crusted bananas. I love Paula but I have to say --- these didn't turn out well for me.

Southern-Style Pork Chops
Delicious. I made it just as described except for substituting milk for the heavy cream. It was great!

Cajun Spiced Pork Chops
I made this for my fiance tonight. He LOVED it. I'm not really a fan of super-spicy food, but I enjoyed it as well. Served with a side of applesauce and herb corn bake. Great meal! Thanks for sharing!
