About this Cook
I am actually overcoming an eating disorder and this is one of the most theraputic sites in the world. I have been a bulemic for almost 6 years and this is how i feed my urges without feeding my face. "Chewy" Is the name i've given to the voice that tells me to binge (no i'm not crazy, its part of recovery believe it or not). I love the site!
My favorite things to cook
I am an avid baker, although not very good. I am obsessed with cookies and cook them more than anything else!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Coming from a strong italian family, we've got our share of red sauce, but truth be told, i don't even like the stuff!@
My cooking triumphs
When i was about 17 i cooked a whole thanksgiving spread for my little sister and I. It was just us so i did cornish game hens instead of a turkey. It was awesome!
My cooking tragedies
Hmmm....advice: mind yourself when trying to use organics and vegan products. Spelt flour and carob can make some NASTY combos!

Peppered Bacon and Tomato Linguine
Husband loved it! i wasn't exactly sure if the bacon was done enough, a little under cooked gave it more of a hammy texture which was more fitting for the pasta (robust i guess) I also used the thick cut market bacon which takes a bit longer to cook. I'd make it again!

Rich and Delicious Banana Bread
Not bad, lacking spice but not bad! I added a bunch of allspice and a dash of nutmeg and i think the smell of it baking was better than anything else. I would use this again, over and over!
