About this Cook
I have been cooking since I was 8 years old. I have taken lessons at a Gourmet Cooking shop (an outreach for the Culinary Arts School) for many years and then started a gourmet cooking group.
My favorite things to cook
Italian, Italian, Italian! I also make great appetizers and desserts, thanks to all the cooking classes I took in my 20's and 30's.
My favorite family cooking traditions
All Southern foods, my mom fried EVERYTHING. However, I hardly fry a thing. My husband has to beg me for fried chicken; which I do very well thanks to my mothers southern recipe.
My cooking triumphs
I was a caterer for many years and was only known by request (didn't advertise) but stayed very busy!
My cooking tragedies
My first turkey. I forgot to take out the inside packet containing the neck, gizzard, etc. My husband freaked!!!

Chicken Pot Pie IX
This is to die for! Very yummy. I (like so many others) added chx. broth in with the vegies , poultry seasoning and onion pwdr. I omitted the celery salt. I also like it creamy, so I added a can of cream of chx soup. Also, we don't like alot of crust, so I only put on the top crust. Perfection!

Cocktail Meatballs
this recipe was a bit bland to me. I doctored it up and it came out prety good. I used soy sauce, honey, worceshire and add a little liquid smoke (which took a bit of the sweetness out) I also added garlic powder and a little paprika. I had to keep playing with the recipe until it was just right. But I got requests on the recipe in the end!
