About this Cook
Newlywed archivist, rock-and-roll librarian, love to make pie but love more to eat cake. Trying to be more healthy in my cooking, but still love butter and bacon.
My favorite things to cook
Pie, muffins, cookies. But I do okay with Italian and Mexican savory dishes, too, and am extending my brunch repertoire.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My nona's fried mushrooms--if I ever figure out the recipe, I'll share it. Grew up with mostly Italian cooking, but my mom was a self-taught experimenter and macro diet person, so we ate adventurously!
My cooking triumphs
Won two trophies from the Grilled Cheese Invitational: one sweet and savory sammich, and one called The Black and Tan.
My cooking tragedies
Over-salting anything. What a heartbreak. And embarrassment!

Simple Whole Roasted Chicken
I LOVE the seasoning of this roasted chicken. It's a huge hit at my house, and the leftovers are delicious for anything from chicken pot pie to just topping on a bed of salad greens.

Sausage Stuffing
This was perfect! One of those recipes I always took for granted would be there for me from my mom, but hasn't made it onto a recipe card yet! I was able to get exactly 8 cups of bread crusts from making cucumber sandwiches for a tea party, so it was an AllRecipes double-score for me! http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Easy-Cucumber-Party-Sandwiches

Easy Cucumber Party Sandwiches
Perfect! Followed the recipe to a T, and it was flawless. Also, the hit of the party. Bonus tip: I trimmed a loaf of white bread, and the trimmings turned out to be 8 cups: exactly enough to make this stuffing! http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Sausage-Stuffing
