About this Cook
I've been a full time teacher for 24 years. Growing up, my family owned and operated an Italian Restaurant in upstate NY since I was 6 years old. I enjoy cooking, although I wish I had a more spacious and updated kitchen to work in! My husband and daughter love to eat my food!!!!!!
My favorite things to cook
I love to collect and cook ethnic recipes from around the globe. My family loves to try new things.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Italian and Polish heritage had me cooking at a very young age--about 8 years old. I used to follow recipes, but now prefer to create and invent brand new recipes or variations on old favorites. Authentic Italian foods are a joy for me to cook, as they remind me of my youth and my family members--especially when the aromas of family favorites fill my home!
My cooking triumphs
Pumpkin Praline Cheesecake, Holiday Butternut Casserole, and anything Italian!
My cooking tragedies
I can't seem to get the hang of Japanese recipes--particularly sushi. I have all the tools and special paraphernalia, but it never comes out right!

Keon's Slow Cooker Curry Chicken
loved the subtle coconut flavor throughout this delicious and easy dish. I only added 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper and the family asked for less of it next time. Other than that, it was a big hit in our house. I will definitely make this one again!

Butternut Squash Casserole
This has been a requested favorite for over a decade in our house. I don't put the extra sugar in the topping, as the wafers make it sweet enough for our tastes.
