About this Cook
Coming from a Mediterranean culture food was always the main focal point of all the family gatherings. My grandmother and aunt where the main people who taught me how to cook as a child. Later on I experimented and tried a hand at working at the kitchen at Hilton. Now I am focusing on special needs and education as a career path.
My favorite things to cook
casseroles, cakes, sushi making, stews, making meatballs, home-made pizza,seafood dishes, experimenting with pasta sauces
My favorite family cooking traditions
My father's vinegar octopus a must at dinner parties. My grandmother's stuffed onions. My aunt's melomakarouna at Christmas time My mother's fanouropita
My cooking triumphs
Baking a 4layer vanilla chocolate nutella cake to take to work, and probably cooking for 15 people for Thanksgiving
My cooking tragedies
I was trying to reheat a green bean casserole for guests,that I had made in advance, but forgot I put it in the oven because of all the comotion and burnt the onions at the top

Authentic German Potato Salad
It tasted good...I think next time though I would make more of the dressing for the potatoes. But all around good. Got the seal of approval from my German boyfriend.
