About this Cook
Like to cook but LOVE to bake. Traveling is my passion, especially to the Riviera Maya, Mexico. You can learn so much about a culture through its cuisine.
My favorite things to cook
Italian and Mexican dishes
My favorite family cooking traditions
Italian and Eastern European seasonal dishes; baking pies with my grandmother.
My cooking triumphs
My first Thanksgiving dinner in a new house while I hadn't quite figured out the temperamental oven.
My cooking tragedies
First quiche baked at my new residence when I hadn't yet figured out the oven. Raw inside, burnt outside. Also, a few years ago when I prepared my very first brined turkey for Thanksgiving---way too salty. My Mom cried that she couldn't eat it and made my brother (who dubbed this turkey "Turkey of the Sea") go out and buy another turkey for our dinner. Didn't eat until 8 p.m. A disaster.

Grandma's Lemon Meringue Pie
Tip: Crush or grind finely about 4 ginger snap cookies (about 3 Tbs.); sprinkle over the bottom of the baked pie crust before filling. This makes a moisture barrier and prevents the bottom from getting soggy. Delicious pie!

Maple Icing
What a wonderful frosting with a lovely creamy texture. I wanted more maple flavor so I used only 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract and upped the maple extract to one full teaspoon. I also used only 3 1/2 cups of confectioner's sugar to achieve the perfect consistency (for me). This was wonderful spread on my golden maple-walnut sheet cake. I sprinkled some chopped toasted walnuts on top. Delicious!

Mom's Apple Fritters
I added some ground cinnamon and nutmeg to the batter. Dropped by heaping teaspoons, the fritters cooked for about 2 1/2 minutes on each side. Perfect. I had some leftover, so to reheat, I nuked them for a few seconds then placed them on a rack in a 400 degree oven for about 10 minutes to crisp them up a bit. Although they were not nearly as good as the freshly-fried fritters, they were quite respectable. This recipe is a keeper for sure.
