About this Cook
I've been cooking since I was big enough to stand on a chair and help (almost 60 years). I love my grandmother and mothers recipes, but I love to read lots of cookbooks and come up with something all my own. I see cooking as an art.
My favorite things to cook
I love to use herbs and spices. I experiment with different sauces and like to use wine.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmothers were both great cooks, my MaMa made comfort foods and my Nonnie made more exotic dishes. I love to make both. My Mother was the most hands on with my 3 brothers(who all cook)and me. She taught me how to cook on a budget and how to always find something to make out of what's on hand.

Creamy Potato Leek Soup II
So yummy! I just ate two bowls and it was so simple, but the best potato soup I've ever had. I did use half and half instead of cream and I wasn't in the mood for bacon so left it out. I did use a little bacon grease to flavor the leeks. I loved the chicken broth instead of water to cook the potatoes in, it made it flavorful without extra richness. I'm sure making it exactly by the recipe would be wonderful, I just made to suit me. Thanks!
