About this Cook
I am a full time student and a full time bartender! I am studying International Studies with a minor in Italian and Marketing. I love to cook and bake when I am not busy with other things!
My favorite things to cook
I love all things Italian! I also love to bake anything and love to try new things all of the time.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making pasta sauces for spaghetti (only the good stuff takes days to cook). And baking almost anything in the world with my grandma growing up!
My cooking triumphs
My cooking tragedies
Nothing that I have tried yet is a tragedy.

This is tasty but.. I suggest using fresh parsley when sautéing the eggplant. Also, make sure to sweat the eggplant before cooking for about 20 min. They sauté faster and it gets the bitterness out! Also I add a yellow squash instead of two zucchinis, adds a different flavor to the pot!

Dave's Low Country Boil
A house favorite! Great group meal! I added a bit of chili flakes and spicy sausage, along with an onion and a bit of white wine along with the boiling water! Mmm mmm. Also used baby red potatoes and cooked them a bit longer.

Penne Pasta with Veggies
So good! The only thing I would suggest is giving it a stir when it is half way through and using a bit less butter. That way it is not as oily, the top layer will not crisp up, and it will ensure that your veggies will not vary in consistency throughout the dish. Definitely a repeat! Next time I am adding mushrooms in the mixture, and sautéed prawns to top it off! Mmm.. mmm..
