About this Cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandparents owned a bakery, so my mom is super-spoiled when it comes to fresh baked goods. There's always something baking at my house! I'm one of four sisters, and we all learned to bake and cook when we were little.
My cooking triumphs
Replicating my mother's chicken soup!
My cooking tragedies
Burning a pot of the same chicken soup -- I put the chicken bones into a huge pot of water at midnight and left the pot of simmering all night on low, and woke up at 6 in the morning to the smell of SERIOUSLY burnt chicken. And when I threw all that out, aired out the house, and began a stew, I forgot all about it after a couple hours and burned THAT too. *shakes head in shame*

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti
THANK YOU! These were excellent, and I can't wait to make again with various add-ins. I was nervous because the batter looked sticky at first, almost like a super-thick brownie batter, and I didn't know how the loaves would keep their shapes on an open pan, but they held together well through baking, slicing and rebaking. Yum!!
