About this Cook
I have many interests including cooking, eating, hiking, gardening, collecting recipes and cookbooks, and reading. Both of may grandmothers were excellent cooks with different ethnic backgrounds and styles.
My favorite things to cook
Just about anything! I like to try new recipes and create my own recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
That would have to be homemade meatballs and spaghetti sauce. My grandmother taught my mother, who taught me.
My cooking triumphs
Chicken marsala, hands down!
My cooking tragedies
I cannot make a buttermilk biscuit to save my life! They are like hockey pucks!!

Grilled Delmonico Steaks
Excellent marinade but OMIT the added salt!!! I only udpsed 1 tsp of salt and i still had to add a cup of white wine to cut the salt in the final marinade.

Best Bread Machine Bread
Hi, thanks for the + reviews....just wanted to add a comment about putting the yeast in with the water. You can add a little flour, too. This is making a 'sponge' something my Italian grandmother did as a first step in bread making. She didn't have a machine of any kind--she used her hands and made 6 loaves at a time!

Pasta, Chicken and Artichokes
This dish looked promising but was very sad. No flavor. I omitted tomatoes (with broccoli?) and added wine, basil, garlic powder. Did not help it.
