Well it's Halloween morning and from what I've been able to gather Trick or Treat is still "on" for this evening.  Remnants of super-storm Sandy threatened postponement of the annual event. Tonight we will get together with our friends from down the street to eat before passing out candy to… MORE

I made Bree's Honey Butter, and let's just say I wanted to take that sandwich knife and spread it right into my mouth, thus eliminating the middleman.  Once I tasted the end product, I immediately thought about my cinnamon waffles and how good that Honey Butter would taste on them. (Here… MORE

About Me
I am ex-career woman turned professional household administrator. I enjoy learning new cooking techniques and preparing recipes that my family enjoys as much as restaurant food.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy baking sweet treats, especially most things chocolate. I am working on expanding my horizons on Chinese and Mexican cuisine. I love to grill outdoors, especially a good steak.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I am full-blooded Italian and I enjoy making homemade pasta noodles with my mother. She is so fast and has just the right touch with the dough. I enjoy trying to master her techniques.
My cooking triumphs
I love to learn. My husband has given me culinary classes and books as gifts. One of my favorites was the science behind baking. Where I was able to experiment with the ingredients to customize a chocolate chip cookie exactly to my liking.
My cooking tragedies
When I was younger every meal I prepared was an adventure. I remember the pan of brownies where the entire pan came out as one piece and wouldn't break even when we threw it up against a brick wall. Then there was the gravy that exploded in the blender all over the kitchen. Yikes!
