About this Cook
Stay at home mommy of 2 boys (3 if you count my hubby). I have always loved to cook even as a child. I would spend time in the kitchen with my mother and grandmothers, which is how I learned. I also cook by sight and smell, which sometimes gets me into trouble if I need to share a recipe with someone...I don't use alot of measurements!
My favorite things to cook
Italian food...Italian food and more Italian food!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I come from a VERY Italian family...all cooking is a tradition!
My cooking triumphs
I did have one desert triumph...and have made it many times Paula Deen's Gooey Chocolate Butter Cake. The other triumph I had while baking was zuchinni bread. Great recipe and it froze well.
My cooking tragedies
I'm not so hot at baking desserts, etc, but definitely getting better. I made a coconut cream pie that was awful!

Broccoli Cheese Soup
After trying a different recipe for this using flour, I decided to go the cornstarch route. I used 32 oz of chicken broth instead of the recommended amount, used a can of cheese soup instead of the cubed processed cheese, used half the milk and half of the cornstarch. I dissolved the cornstarch in the milk and ommitted the water. It was marvelous! Next time I will use two cans of cheese soup.

Broccoli Cheese Soup V
I used fresh broccoli and let it sit in the chicken broth for a while and added a can of carrots. Instead of onion, I used onion powder and added some garlic powder as well. I couldn't find my white pepper, so I used black. IT IS FANTASTIC! My son who doesn't particularly care for broccoli loves it! YUMMMMOOOO!

Baked Potato Soup III
I am only giving four stars because I added spices to it. I saw that someone else said it was bland, so I added garlic (fresh)and some onion powder. It came out delicious and I've made it several times. It tastes like TGI Friday's baked potato soup. YUMMY!
