About this Cook
Hi I'm a working mom and married and also have a 10 ,15 and 16 year old Also fascinated with international cuisine, always like to bring some thing new to the table from different cultures. I've alway's loved cooking , but my true passion is baking. There is nothing more fulfilling then working your hands into dough, then seeing your children eating and enjoying what you made with your bare hands, “Wait” then hearing them say mom I really want to cook like you when I grow up. priceless...
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook pasta,bake from brownies to a tiramisu , I really have to say that in my house it's a fight between rice and pasta my husband and my son love there rice, but me and my girls love our pasta usually the men win!
My favorite family cooking traditions
my mom is an ok cook, but a very good baker . For the question of cooking traditions.I would have to say my favorite is cooking for my family on holiday's ,especially our dessert table wow do we bake enough to feed an army.
My cooking triumphs

My cooking tragedies
Trying to make caramel swirls for a cheesecake. Man does that hurt! when touched by a human finger!
