Just a creative lady with a knack for unusual yet delicious cooking.
I'm known as a "Kitchen Witch" by my beloved boyfriend.
Now only if I had some "Kitchen Faeries" to clean up afterward!
My favorite things to cook
I love making things from scratch or "Iron Chef" style with whatever may be in the cabinets and freezer. I enjoy making soup, appetizers, treats and dishes that appeal to the healthy/diabetic crowd.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mostly Italian/Sicilian fare yet our family specialities are: Chocolate Flourless Cake, Remaki, Souped-up Rice, Greek Chicken, Shepherd's Pie, Zucchini Parmagianna, Marie's Oatmeal Cookies, Tex-Mex Mac, Quiche Lorraine, Chicken Pot Pies, Bourbon Chicken and Beef, Smashed Potatoes, Pan-fried Soft-shell Crab, Broccoli Poppers.
My cooking triumphs
Making Steamed Lobster with Seafood Pesto over angel-hair wheat pasta and Lemon Pepper Vegetables. I also made a small amount of Paper Chicken I replicated that my boyfriend and I ate at a near-by Chinese restaurant in case our close friends didn't like lobster. What an awesome New Year's Eve!
My cooking tragedies
I screwed up Jello. Yes. That's right. 8 hours and it still didn't set. LOL!
My boyfriend said it was the Jello's fault. He is my Litmus Test in the kitchen and is definitely a keeper! :D
