It’s the start of spring break from school and what’s the first thing out of your kid’s mouth when they get home?  “Can I invite some friends over for a sleepover?”  Followed up  by “Will you make breakfast stromboli for us?”So, the guests arrive and Mom heads to the kitchen to whip up some… MORE

About this Cook
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!

Wavy Lasagna with Italian Sausage and Marinara Sauce
My family really liked this lasagna. You will undoubtedly have some torn noodles. Use the pieces in the middle layers and set aside whole noodles for the top layer. I did pre-cook my noodles, so I did not cover it with foil and it baked with just a little crunch on the sides, just the way we like it.

Thin Spaghetti with Garlic, Red Pepper and Olive Oil
This is an easy recipe to prepare as is or customize to your taste. I omitted the red pepper flakes. My family prefers sautéed onions.

Amazing Muffin Cups
I forgot to thaw the hash browns ahead of time so I put 3/4 of a two lb. bag of potatoes in a colander and ran some luke warm water over them for maybe a minute and then sat them in the sink to drain well. I added seasoning to our taste to the potatoes and I didn't have red peppers on hand so I opened up a small can of green chiles and spooned it on top of the egg mixture before I placed the sausage in the cups. The green chiles really added a nice flavor.
