About this Cook
Love to cook, ride my motorcycle and belly dance
My favorite things to cook
I love greek cuisine and making traditional New England comfort food. Soups and sauces!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother and I spend the weekend after Thanksgiving making all types of Christmas/Channukkah pastry (raspberry strudel, swedish tea cookies, soft ginger snaps, peppermint pattie cookies, etc) and cookies to pass out to friends and clients.
My cooking triumphs
I can finally make my own bread and pizza - it's been a long battle, but now I am comfortable with yeast. Soup seems to be my new forte!
My cooking tragedies
Too many to list, but my husband says my stuffed zucchini recipe is weird. I also have issues with pie crust!

Clone of a Cinnabon
First, I am only giving it 3 stars because they did not cook all the way through at 400 for 15 minutes. The middle roll was still very very doughy. Not sure if I need to increase the time and reduce the temp next time - but I will make these again. Otherwise, the end rolls and tops were beautiful, and very tasty!!! The dough rose beautifully and the (cooked) pastry was not hard or brick like (as stated by other reviewers. I did use a bread machine, and did let them rise again in the pan.

Followed exactly and it was very good. Very similar to what my Yaiyia made when I was young. I only gave it 4 stars because it needs more bechamel sauce. Thnk you for posting, will def make again!

Mom's Zucchini Pancakes
I just tried this - yummy! Really excited to find this to use up some zucchini and really enjoy it! I did amend this by adding more onion and cheese - then some parsley, a touch of garlic powder and pepper. They fried up wonderfully and were very tasty, thank you for sharing!
