About this Cook
I am married, mother of three children and a registered nurse. I work full time, but cooking and baking have become a great hobby.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make desserts, especially cakes!! I am Italian, so I love to cook Italian food, especially seafood.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother is a fabulous cook and baker. Her specialty is cookies! She is teaching me all of her tricks.
My cooking triumphs
I have just recently mastered my mother's famous butter cookies. I have also learned the secret to flaky pie crust and amazing scones and biscuits.
My cooking tragedies
So far, I haven't had very many. I did forget to put vanilla into a batch of brownies, which were awful! I usually plan my recipes ahead and try to be organized so that things turn out well.

Country Apple Dumplings
Excellent! My mother tried these first and I have to say I didn't believe her when she told me how great these were. I will have to think twice before making another apple pie for a holiday. These are easier to make and better tasting. Everyone in the house loved them!
