About this Cook
Started work in the restaurant industry at 13 and 'retired' by the time I was 28. Still cater once in a while and love to try new things!
My favorite things to cook
Comfort food. If it's cheesy, creamy, chocolatey or involves popcorn, I'm all over it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Zeppolis at Christmas, my mother's cheesecake, my father's crusty French bread, Italian wine cookies, rosette cookies, chicken cutlets...the list goes on.
My cooking triumphs
Papillotes that stayed puffed, souffles that kept their height...that kind of thing.
My cooking tragedies
Rice. For the longest time, even during the restaurant years I could not make a decent pot of rice. I've mastered it since then but some of those attempts truly were tragic.

Hermits I
The recipe itself is fine but for drop cookies, 12 - 15 @ 375 is WAY too much. Took them out at 6 minutes otherwise they would have been charcoal. I dropped the oven temp to 325 and went for about 10 to 12 minutes and that seemed to work much better.

Chocolate Cavity Maker Cake
Unquestionably the BEST chocolate cake I have ever made or eaten. Definitely use the mini-size chips, they add moisture & silkiness and just enough texture. I topped this with a simple ganache made from equal parts espresso-flavored 60% chocolate and heavy cream. Seriously to die for.

Parmesan Puffs
Very nice, I'd go at 350 for about twenty to thirty minutes and I did add black pepper, garlic, etc.
