About this Cook
Retired Spec. Ed. teacher for NYC Bd. Ed., now working in Early Intervention Therapy. Passion for tennis, cooking and oil painting.
My favorite things to cook to cook everything. But I make a wonderful lasagne, chicken marsala, chicken scarpariello, and jar my own tomatoes from the garden that my husband works so hard in during the spring/summer.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every St. Patrick's Day, I make Irish Soda Breads (from my grandmother's recipe) and give them to friends and co-workers. My sister's soda bread is even better than mine.

Tomato Basil Pasta
This is such an easy recipe. I used cherry tomatoes cut in half because we are harvesting so many from our garden now! Sautéed red onion (don't like raw) and then added the olive oil, tomatoes and basil to the pan. I put it all in a bowl, let it come to room temperature and poured it over the pasta. I then added the Parmesan cheese, basil, salt and pepper and diced mozzarella ( had no feta in the house). This was quick, simple and delicious. Will definitely make this many times this summer. Great to bring to a barbecue as a pasta salad!

I am not a pork chop fan but my husband loves them. Since he had recently bought some pork chops and I saw this recipe, I decided to try it. It was soooooooo easy to prepare and the results were terrific. Tasty and moist, they are now my favorite way to make pork chops. I served them over egg noddles with the delicious sauce. We had leftovers and I simply heated them in a saucepan over low heat with a little added chicken broth and it was just as good. Try this one and you will love it.

Chicken Avocado Casserole
Delicious, albeit very rich. Next time I make this, I will wait till the end to make the cream sauce as it thickened quite a bit while it was sitting and I had to add a lot more chicken broth. Made this with brown rice and used the sauce to top the rice as well. YUM.
