About this Cook
I love to cook! Now that my family is grown & gone, I am enjoying branching out to new recipes and cooking experiences.
My favorite things to cook
I love dinner parties, where I do the main dish & drinks and the guests all bring something to add. I find that this encourages me to entertain more often, as the load of the entire affair is spread amoung the guests. I also find that they enjoy this, as it gives them a chance to "show off" their favorite family recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Traditional turkey dinner for Thanksgiving; King Crab legs & various other seafood for Christmas; Oyster Stew for Christmas Eve; German Apple Pancakes for Birthday Breakfasts.
My cooking triumphs
Cooking class in Italy, which we brought home to Friends & Family in the states -- authentic Italian Ragu with hand-rolled "Picci" (Tuscany); Itanlian Sausage, and yes, for sure, authentic Italian Tiramisu'!
My cooking tragedies
None I'm willing to talk about!

Cream Cheesy Cubed Zucchini with Lemon and Oregano
I was disappointed in this dish. Followed the directions exactly. But it turned out very one-dimensional, the flavors were not well-balanced at all. I had to add some extra ingredients to save it. I will not be making this one again.

Baked Apricot Chicken
This is just average, in my opinion. I made per recipe, and even tried it a second time, but for me it lacks luster. Something is off in the balance of flavors for me.

This is a wow! Simple ingredients, simple preparation, lots of flavor for such little effort. Make it per recipe, no changes needed for an impressive dish!
