About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Favorite things to cook - cookies of every kind! Other than that I tend to cook very healthy. But there's somehting about cookies that makes feel great.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Dad's side are immigrants from Italy, and my Momma's family is a mix of German & Russian. Any way you cut it - Europeans equal food!
My cooking triumphs
This Christmas will be the first year I'm hosting ... so I hope that will be my big triumph! Besides that ... it would have to be my annual Cookie Cook Off. Basically it's 3 straight days of cookie baking with whoever walks in my front door!
My cooking tragedies
Probably the Cookie Cook Off! This year I learned new stoves heat different than old stoves!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins
Fantastic! I doubled the recipe and actually got 16 'normal' sized muffins (and by 'normal' I mean a 2.5" in diameter and height). Definitely only one portion of brown sugar topping is needed. Batter is VERY thick (think mashed banana type thick) but it holds berries very well! Don't stir it too much. I only use olive oil in my kitchen and it tasted just fine. Will be keeping this one as my muffin base. Thank you!!

Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken
YUM! My husband eats everything except bananas. He’s the least fussy person I’ve ever met. Whenever I try new recipes his stock answer is ‘Ya it’s good, I’ll eat it again.’ To this he took a bite and ‘Mmmmm! Ohhh mmmm! This is REALLY good!’ Therefore this is a keeper recipe! Alterations to original recipe: Lightly coat chicken pieces with flour (I made half with & half without flour, floured chicken is way better). When you do that, there is enough sauce for 3 chicken breasts, not 4. Thanks for a great recipe! This will definitely be in our rotation.

Crispy Zucchini or Pumpkin Blossoms
Ever cry when eating food? Yup! These are perfect for so many reasons!! My Nonna would send me into her garden looking for male flowers. She’d make these every summer on an old stove in the garage (I’ve never figured out why this was an ‘outdoor only’ type food, her version of a BBQ maybe?). When she passed – the recipe went with her. Seeing as I couldn’t recall what was involved in these ‘petigella’ (spelling?), I checked on allrecipes. Though it’s not exact, it brought back a flood of memories for me. Domenica, thank you for the memories! These are wonderful!
