About this Cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family was making Italian Wedding Soup before it became popular. It's one of the special recipes handed down through my family - my son makes it now! Also, Easter Bread - an awesome egg bread made at Easter time.

Hash Brown Casserole II
I've been making this recipe for years and years. I got it back in the 1980's and it's still a winner. I make it almost exactly as written but sometimes omit the topping and it's still great. It makes a lot and is good as leftovers. Thanks for posting this - I wanted to pass it along to a friend and couldn't find my recipe card so I searched till I found the right one - and this is it! Thanks Cmansky for posting this!

Chef John's Sunday Pasta Sauce
This looks just like the sauce my grandmother and aunts used to make. I've gotten away from putting meat in my sauce and really hate ground meat in sauce. Think I'll go back to this method. From my memories, this is awesome. When Grandma made polenta, the sauce she used was like this only she used Italian sausage simmered in the sauce - it was outstanding. Thanks, Chef John, for the walk down memory lane and for a keeper.

Quinoa Side Dish
Very good. I saute'd the onions and garlic first as suggested by another rater. I used chicken broth because I didn't have veggie broth. We had it with Basil Pesto Chicken from an online blog - It was a really good dinner.
