About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook Italian food and recipes that have been in my family and my for generations.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year to celebrate my birthday my Great Aunt makes chicken and polenta (a family recipe she learned from her Grandmother). Making cut-out cookies at Christmas time with my boys.
My cooking triumphs
I make chicken & risotto, polenta and wedding soup as good as my Great Aunt and Grandma! I have mastered homemade bread, dinner rolls and pizza crust.
My cooking tragedies
I used miracle whip in a spinach dip recipe in place of mayonnaise once. It was horrible! I had to do alot of doctoring with other ingredients to make it edible.

Ginger Glazed Mahi Mahi
This was really good. I did make a few changes but ONLY because I threw this together at the last minute. I did not have fresh garlic or ginger root so I used garlic powder and ground ginger. Still an excellent recipe. Also, I never fry my food so I used the grill. I did notice it wanted to burn but my mahi mahi filets were really thick so they took longer to cook. You could use any mild fish like cod or tilapi too.

Cinnamon Pie
Easy pie made with pantry ingredients. It was good the first day but from now on I will wait to serve it after it has been refrigerated. It was much better. It took awhile to set up after baking so don't be alarmed if it looks like it isn't done.

Stuffed Pepper Soup IV
Great soup recipe. I substituted ground turkey and brown rice to make it a little healthier.
