About this Cook
I'm a formulator, love to put things together -- cooking, aromatherapy products, music, words, jewelry, etc.
My favorite things to cook
Love cooking with my Italian roots. Homemade ravioli is incredible, and much easier than one would think.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I always remember my Uncle Ciccio cooking up quick pastas and sauces after a long "card night."
My cooking triumphs
I created my own suped up version of pasta fagiole and it put me in the top ten for a Food and Wine Magazine Contest. I recently won a monthly prize for my "Tomato Parfait" creation for the Florida Tomato Board, and also was a semifinalist (top 22) in Dave's Gourmet Million Dollar Sauce Contest.
My cooking tragedies
Burned pizza. It's what happens when you are not paying attention. (See the photo upload).

Irish Potatoes
This is a really fun and easy recipe! I read the reviews and was careful to use unsweetened shredded coconut, so the potatoes didn't come out too sweet. I used a very heaping cup of coconut and a scant cup of powdered sugar. I also added a teaspoon of vanilla. The consistentcy came out just perfect, like moldable clay. I found that pressing the balls of coconut mixture in the palms of my hands warmed them and made them more smooth and realistic looking. A plastic snack bag made it easy to coat three or four potatoes at a time with the cinnamon. They really look like little potatoes! And they taste like yummy coconut macaroons. I'm adding a photo of my happy results. Five stars for fun, easy, delicious and no baking.
