About this Cook

I love cooking with my children and family. What a way to teach, lean and bond!
My cooking tragedies
I once made a wedding cake for a friend of a friend and while delivering the cake, I tripped and dropped the bottom (biggest) layer! Fortunately I called a bakery and they were able to whip up the bottom to my specifications. Thanks goodnees for the kindness of strangers-my top layers still tasted better than the bakery's.

Old-Fashioned Italian Zucchini Fritters
I am going to assume I just did something wrong which is why I am allowing this recipe two stars. I found the recipe sincerely lacking in flavor, and for some reason my fritters came out thick and spongy- not flat and crispy as expected. I put them in a hot oven to try and crisp them up- no dice! I also followed advice and squeezed out extra water. Next time I will just slice, batter and fry zucchini slices- always a winner and always crispy and flavorful.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie
I have a go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe, but wanted one for large cookies. This one fits the bill! I was skeptical about using melted butter, but it worked okay (I used a stand mixer to get it the butter sugar egg mixture nice and fluffy). I did add one teaspoon of cinnamon the second time I made these because it really brings out the flavor of chocolate and vanilla. They were a tad bland without but with the cinnamon-yum! I did not chill this dough, and it worked just fine. I did cool on cookie sheets 5 minutes before transferring to rack. They did look a little underdone at 15 minutes, but finished up while cooling on baking sheet. I did not grease pans but rather used a silpat liner- best for cookies! Thank you for this terrific recipe!

Crunchy Eggplant Parmesan
This was a delicious take on eggplant parm! I didn't have Italian seasoning so I improvised with rosemary, oregano, thyme,garlic and onion powder. The eggplant held it's shape and I didn't get too soggy. I think the salt "sweating" step is key. I used a jar of Newman's pasta sauce and served it with spaghetti. The eggplant really sucks up the sauce during baking- when I make this again I will use another jar of sauce to serve on the side. This is one my picky son ate without complaint!
