About this Cook
Married to Guido who is my biggest fan. I think I decided to marry him when he first came home and said 'Something smells REALLY good, Baby!' and he has said it every night since........
My favorite things to cook
Italian. It's in our blood to make the perfect GRAVY (we call it Gravy in our family, not sauce)- I guess I make a mean marinara, I have gotten two marriage proposals and one offer for a weekend in Vegas after they tasted my secret recipe...
My favorite family cooking traditions
Food was/is our life. Everything happened in the kitchen. Typically the Holidays called for Sausage*Noodle Bake, Ricotta Pie, Zeppolas, Macaroni in Aleeche, and every Christmas Mom made Candy Cane cookies. Oh- and Easter calls for the Easter Breads-braided sweet dough around colored eggs, jeeze we EAT A LOT!!
My cooking triumphs
Besides my Sunday Gravy, I am quite good at French Onion Soup, and apparently my Potato Salad is 'to die for'- Guido loves me and loves it all, except for this one time...
My cooking tragedies
...this one time I made the Eggplant Croquettes from this site. Oh man, what a nightmare. I should post our review, but let me just say 'YUCK-O' and leave it at that. The house stunk for 4 days and 2 nights...

Szechuan Spicy Eggplant
Flavors are perfect. I swapped surf/turf for bird... I love chicken w.szechuan eggplant from my wok-n-good local spot...and they NEVER seem to have the eggplant lately so I had to figure it out myself. The main problem for me here was texture. I will try not to overcook it next time.

Cabbage Rolls II
Guido gave this 4 stars, about 3 stars more than I would give. Made it almost exact but changed up: shallots instead of onion. Savoy cabbage instead of cheap kind. Add-ins: garlic, salt, 1 jar Barilla onion & garlic pasta sauce. Salt, it needed lots of salt. I also used ground turkey but honestly, I'd do it again because it goes in raw, I don't want the rolls swimming in cow lard... Un-tasty. My man was VERY happy. Oh yeah-I covered with foil and baked one hour. No biggie, cabbage was so tender. It just needs more seasonings. I'll do it again, anything for Guido.

Summer Feta Burger with Gourmet Cheese Spread
Great flavors! I skipped the gourmet cheese spread, also found I didn't have ground pork defrosted and I totally flaked out and forgot the egg- but the taste of the burgers was really different and delicious. I will make these again, and use the pork & egg, mine fell apart a LOT, and I know the egg will help that not happen. Dig the red wine in there too. Thanks!
