About this Cook
I love to cook and bake. I grew up in a very traditional Italian family, Lots of fresh vegetables, fresh homemade bread and pastas. I enjoy feeding the people I care about. Hot soup for an older neighbor, warm cinnamon buns for my employees, seafood pasta for my husband, and of course gnocchi with fresh tomato sauce with a generous sprinkle of Romano cheese for my girls. I love entertaining! Good Music, good friends and family, fresh flowers, good wine and great simple dishes are the essentials for hosting a great time.

Rye Beer Bread
Great Bread! Used Ale and the loaf was not bitter. Very easy and the recipe is easy to follow with excellent results. My only change was that I used fresh cake yeast instead of the pouches.

Quick Gnocchi
This is an excellent gnocchi recipe. I dreaded making the traditional potato gnocchi-the boiling, peeling and putting the potatoes through the ricer is very labour intensive. This recipe gives you the same flavor with very little effort. I used my Kitchen Aid to mix and then knead the dough. No need to only put a few gnocchi in boiling water at a time. If you use all the flour as listed they will not stick or fall apart. Thanks for sharing!
