About this Cook
Food lover and aspiring anthropologist.
My favorite things to cook
Pasta sauces, cookies, cake, pie - but I'll try anything!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom is very proud of her dad's pancakes. She's also been a huge inspiration and I hope to become as graceful in the kitchen as she is (including flour in my hair and chocolate around my mouth).

Grandma's Gnocchi
It worked pretty well for me, for a first shot! I didn't pay much attention to the written ingredient amounts and just added flour until it seemed right. I also baked the potatoes first, mashed them, then chilled them for about 10 min before making. I plan to experiment with other types of potatoes, and adding other ingredients for flavor.

Bacon Chicken and Dumplings
Pretty tasty - can't beat cream, carbs, and bacon in my opinion! I added garlic and cheddar cheese. However, I found it a bit heavy with both dumplings AND potatoes, so if I were to make this again I'd probably only choose one.

Basil Chicken and Pasta
Really yummy! I'm a big fan of creamy sauces and garlic. They're right though, it doesn't reheat well at all (sauce just falls apart) but I think it still tasted OK. More cheese solves so many problems though!
