About this Cook
First Generation American born to a Maltese Mother and a Polish Father. Both parents are excellent cooks. I love to garden and use my veggies in my dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Spaghetti sauce, Ravioli - Maltese style.
My cooking triumphs
Creme Brulee - it seems so much harder than it actually is.
My cooking tragedies
Chili... It always turns into a really horrible version something I would rather not say.

Cannoli
Amazing dough recipe. My pasta roller has 6 settings, next time I'll only go up to 5 and then hand roll them after cutting so that they're a little oblong. I wasn't able to deep fry, so I baked them in a convection oven @ 400 - it worked great. Dust 1 side of the shell with flour, wrap around form, then lightly brush oil on the outside with a pastry brush (I actually used the back of a spoon). Just a couple minutes and they're perfect! I also changed up the filling a bit: 2 c. warm milk + 6 Tbsp. flour (mix well & cook for 15 mintues). Cool to room temp. Add ricotta, chocolate, powdered sugar (I used 3/4 c.) + 1 Tbsp vanilla. Whip for 10 mintues w/elec. mixer Chill then fill. I didn't add citrus zest, but will next time. I'm from the east side of Detroit with a TON of Italian bakeries. Best cannoli in town is from Giuseppes and this is pretty close.
