About this Cook
I'm married with 2 young kids. I went to Johnson & Wales for my degree in Culinary Arts and when my first child was born, I quit my regular job to stay home. This is when I began a smalll catering business.
My favorite things to cook
Anything sauteed! I love to try new things, but I think my strong points are saute and sauces. I do enjoy baking, but I give it away so I won't be tempted to eat it all (much to my husband's grief). Italian and Thai are some of my favorite cuisines (to cook AND eat). Soups are fun to make, too!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cook often and cook a LOT! We are a big Italian family and get together often to eat together!
My cooking triumphs
Well, I know I'm supposed to write about something I've cooked, but I don't know exactly what was my best triumph. But I'll say that my greatest triumph so far is being hired as a chef for a very gourmet catering/take-out business!
My cooking tragedies
I set my grill (and almost my whole deck)on fire while making cedar planked salmon. My grill looked like a supernova.

Dulcia Domestica
Oh, this was delicious! I love the taste of dates, but coupled with the honey, almonds & wine....heaven. So very simple and nice layers of flavor.

Ricotta Eggplant Rolls
Here's a GLUTEN-FREE version: add a LOT of freshly grated parm or romano cheese to the egg mixture (so that it's thick enough to coat) and skip the breadcrumbs. Go right to the saute pan with the egg-cheese dipped slices. If you want to make it extra special, lay a slice of proscuitto (Italian Ham)on top of the ricotta cheese mixture before you roll it up! Yum!

Mouth-Watering Stuffed Mushrooms
These are AWESOME! Perfect for anyone on a Gluten-Free diet. Easy to prepare and delicious! I used a pastry bag to pipe in the filling. Quick and easy. There was a lot of filling left over which I heated with some heavy cream and served over penne!
