About this Cook
I am a registered nurse living outside buffalo ny. I come from an italian family so I have been cooking since I was 7.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake things, that is usually my favorite things to cook. If I am cooking it will usually be things like meatloaf, pasta, or some sort of chicken dish.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite cooking traditions are anything to do with christmas eve. Every year to this day, from sun up until dinner my whole family cooks dish after dish. Now that I am older it is what has made me love the holidays. But one holiday dish we always had it Italian wedding soup, its what mean holiday to me.
My cooking triumphs
My slouvaki. I can make better slouvaki and sauce better than anyone. People always say my meatloaf is pretty good too.
My cooking tragedies
When I was sick I tried to make oatmeal cookies, and I forgot to add any spices! It tasted like cement! Another time I tried to make homeade rootbeer in my celler and something happened cause we ALL got sick!!!!

Tiramisu Layer Cake
The ONLY reason I am not giving this 5 stars is because I did not follow it as written. I did go with a lot of the other use suggestions and boy am I glad that I did! And you will too!!! First of all...make TWO coffee flavored cake layers, not one. And use 2 teaspoons of instant coffee or more in each layer. Use very strong coffee for the liquid you brush on. Use about 1.5 tablespoons of coffee liquor and about 3/4 cup strong coffee. I also added about 1/2 teaspoon of instant coffee powder to the marscapone filling. Next time, I would add chopped up chocolate pieces into the filling. But this recipe was AMAZING!!! I made it for Halloween and people are still talking about how good it was!!! This is definitely a keeper recipe.

Creamy Rice Pudding
This is the perfect rice pudding recipe! I have tried many and did not like the outcome. The only reason I am giving it 4 stars and not 5 is because it needed cinnamon, (which I added) and I HIGHLY suggest that you add at least a teaspoon to yours. And since I rate the correct way by rating a recipe how it was written not on what I did to make it 5 stars like some people. But yes this will now be my go to rice pudding recipe!!
