About this Cook
I am a stay at home mom to 2 young children.
My favorite things to cook
Chicken dishes and desserts are my 2 favorite things to cook/bake.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I come from a large Italian family and we always have marathon meals. My grandmother usually does most of the cooking, but has passed down quite a few unique recipes that I can't wait to "master" and pass on to my children.
My cooking triumphs
My first Thanksgiving turkey! I was terrified of the whole giblets thing and the turkey was still partially frozen when I had to take the neck out. I was disgusted, but I got through it and the turkey came out great.
My cooking tragedies many times! There've been a few dishes that I've had to throw out completely because they were 100% inedible!

French Chocolate Cake
I have to admit, I was a little skeptical, especially after it came out of the oven and it looked so dry on the outside. I was afraid that it was just going to be a dry, crispy mess. Boy was I wrong!!!! This was absolutely delicious!!! It had the richness of a chocolate cake without the sickly sweetness that you get from traditional cakes. I served it with raspberry sauce and homemade whipped cream and everyone thought it was great!

Asian Coconut Rice
I was surprised by this recipe...I was expecting a very strong coconut flavor and was a little disappointed to find out that it was so mild that it if someone else had made it, I would never have guessed that it had coconut in it. I used light coconut milk, so maybe that was it. HOWEVER, the thing that surprised me was that even though it wasn't very strong, my husband and I couldn't stop eating it! It was delicious!!

Spinach Tomato Tortellini
I came upon this recipe after my original plan for dinner fell through. I was really hopeful, but unfortunately for me, it tasted extremely bland.
