What does living a Heart-Healthy Lifestyle mean to you?Growing up I never really knew the importance of living a Heart-Healthy lifestyle.  My parents provided us, 6 Kids with the foods they could afford. It seems like there wasn't much talk about heart disease or elevated cholesterol levels… MORE

About this Cook
I have been cooking since I was 9 years old. My mom finally let me cook after begging for who knows how long. I can remember the meal, it was chicken cacciatore. After that I lost the ambition to cook. Years later I realized I missed my calling to become a chef. I truly love cooking and baking. I am always trying new recipes on my family.
My favorite things to cook
Anything complex or exotic.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Like most moms with young kids we always made the Christmas cookies as a tradition. Now they are teenagers and boys, this tradition has lost it meaning. I have been hosting Thanksgiving for 4 years now to about 10 family members. I am experimenting new recipes every year. Also for New Year's Eve we have 20+ people over and I make all the food from scratch for the past 16 years. Family is the most important thing in my life and I love cooking for as many as I can.
My cooking triumphs
I would have to say cooking my first meal at such a young age. I have had great luck with making homemade pasta. Recently I had made short rib Wellington pot pies and they were unbelievable.
My cooking tragedies
Oh there are several. The most recent was making hockey pucks out of delmonicos steaks. However, it wasn't really my fault. The grease catcher on the BBQ grill caught fire.

Pasta al Limone with Ricotta Cheese
This was a nice change from the normal pasta dishes. I liked the freshness the peas and lemon gave the dish. Definitely a summer meal.

American Chop Suey II
I made this the other night but made two changes. The first change I substituted ground sausage for the ground beef. The second change - I used my favorite jarred sauce. We really enjoyed the taste of the sausage.

Apple-Cinnamon French Toast
Yummy!!!! I used some MacIntosh Apples I had on hand and they seemed to have fallen apart. I also used regular eggs, since I don't eat egg beaters.
