About this Cook
Live in a tiny NYC apartment, so cooking can be difficult, but like to try new recipes anyway.
My favorite things to cook
Anything with Pesto in it, appetizers (all kinds) brownies
My cooking tragedies
Ruined a great Flounder/lemon spaghetti recipe by not reading the directions correctly and had to start all over again with not enough ingredients! My romantic dinner was ruined, and i don't think i will try that recipe again.

Cioccolata Calda (Hot Chocolate Italian-Style)
Was very excited to try this recipe as Italian hot chocolate is my favorite in the world. There is only one place in NYC I have found that makes their hot chocolate like they do in Italy, but they charge $5 a cup. I was hoping this would be a good home alternative. However it took FOREVER for the mixture to thicken... by the time we drank it, it was absolutely scalding hot! Maybe the ratio needs to be tweaked? Anyway, besides that the taste was really nice, but not exactly like the Italians do it.

Quinoa Side Dish
My new favorite way to prepare quinoa... the veggie stock (or chicken stock) really adds a nice flavor to the quinoa. Will become my new go-to side dish.

Delicious Artichokes
Delicious but with the pesto and oil it felt a little gresy to me... next time I would just use pesto to cut down on the oilyness. Still yummy though!
