About this Cook
Widowed, 4 grown children, 13 grandchildren. Love family get-to-gethers.
My favorite things to cook
Probably mostly Italian, as that is my backround. Whether it be main dishes or desserts. But love to try everything.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Probably holidays when we have traditional meals.
My cooking triumphs
Many different dishes. Mostly the Italian meals my mother used to make.
My cooking tragedies
More than a few over the 50 plus years I've been 'practicing'. The first turkey I cooked after marrying---I didn't know there were parts of the turkey in the neck area--to be removed. So just roasted it that way.

Iced Pumpkin Cookies
10-12-12 Not sure if my rate of the Iced Pumpkin Cookies went through. Excellent recipe. Getting many raves and requests for the recipe. Will make it often. Thanks. I made them exactly as written.

Italian Rice Pie II
I have not finished this recipe yet. The prep time lists 30 minutes. I have been preparing this for over an hour. The rice is still not thickened. If I had known, it would not have been a choice for me. Back to my old Italian Rice Cake. I am sure it will taste great, as I have been cooking for a very long time--but too much time in the kitchen. I will probably use the crust recipe though. Very easy to make.

Pork Chops with Apple Curry Sauce
The fat content in this recipe surprised me. I am wondering how long ago the recipe was first published, as pork chops are usually less fatty today than they were years ago. In fact, less than chichen. What is raising the fat content to 45%? (24.6g) Should this maybe be revised??? This is a great dish.
