About this Cook
I'm a pharmacist from NJ with a passion for food
My favorite things to cook
Anything Italian always comes out perfect for me. I also dabble with southwest cuisine and good ol comfort food. My FAVORITE dish that i crave consistently is Tortellini Alfredo and my boyfriend's favorite disk of mine is Italian Cornflake chicken cutlets. Overseasoning here is actually the key!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas eve, the seven fishes. We now only do about 3 and they're shrimp, lobster, and schmelts, but the time we spend in the kitchen that night (and many others) is the reason why I cook!
My cooking triumphs
My mom's LASAGNA! I did it! My boyfriend ACTUALLY prefers mine.. and my own take on shrimp scampi showed me I actually had a pretty great palate! I tasted EXACTLY how i wanted it to and my DAD prefers it over my GRANDMA'S!!
My cooking tragedies
My mom's LASAGNA! :) This one is bittersweet, the first time i made it was perfect the second time (thankfully NOT a special occassion) I used a different brand of tomatoes and it litteraly looked like i used pink water. It actually still tasted good even though it was messy. And i like to burn bread and anything else you can broil!

Hot Crab Dip
Very good dip, my husband really liked it. There's something... MISSING though. i have to look at a few more recipes and figure it out. I would eliminate the lemon next time, it was a little too bright in the background, i wanted it to be more savory.

Chicken Cordon Bleu I
I give a 4 as written. I pounded the breasts, filled with fontina cheese and ham then rolled up and put in an eggwash and the breadcrumb. baked at 350. the cheese was closer to the swiss flavor but melts like a dream. the toothpicks were nearly impossible to get out, so make sure you count how many you put in, we had to cut them out.

Sweet Spicy Wings
Great jumpping off point. i breaded them with a cornstarch slurry that i use for my general tso's chicken. i didn't have hot sauce or honey so i used wing sauce and syrup. made 3 servings so decreased butter.fried then baked at 375 for 20 minuts rebrushed with just the wing sauce with some siracha and popped back in for 2 minutes. very good!
