About this Cook
I was born & bred into Italian cooking, but I married my Asian husband who has taught me to cook a lot of traditional Asian dishes. And our kindergartner son is also interested in cooking. He is our little Mediterrasian fusion kid. :)
My favorite things to cook
I love making all the traditional Italian things my Nonna made, but my husband has made me proficient in Asian (esp Thai) cusine. (I even have my own Kaffir Lime tree...those leaves have such an amazing aroma!) And living in the LA area I have learned to cook my other favorite cuisine...Mexican. I also love to bake pies & exotic flavored cupcakes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Our Italian x-mas eve feast: Homemade ravioli, gnocchi, bacala, fritelle, pizzelles....i could go on & on :)
My cooking triumphs
Mastering Beef Panaang Curry & Tom Kha Kai. My husband was impressed with that! He said they was as good as his mom's! Of course it was...i learned from her!
My cooking tragedies
I once tried to make meatloaf years ago when we were first married. YIKES! It was a mushy, tomato mess! I've never made it again.

Roasted Beets with Feta
This is the most delicious recipe for beets I've ever tasted. I was a little skeptical, but the combination of flavors was really amazing. No modifications needed...try this recipe :)

Cranberry Orange Loaf
Nice texture and decent flavor. I left out the nuts and baked in 8 mini loaf pans for about 27-29 minutes. They have a really nice texture and the fresh cranberries tasted delicious. Just make sure to leave the cranberries whole, otherwise they get the flour mixture stuck inside, making them look a little ugly.

Easy Chicken Tetrazzini
This was a really simple and tasty way to use some turkey leftovers. I also added in some sauteed shallots to give it a bit more taste & some cooked broccoli so we could get our veggies in. Overall, I think it could have used a bit more flavor depth, but it was pretty good considering how simple it threw together. And my son (the picky eater)loved it, so that makes it a winner for sure.
