About this Cook
I am married 23 years to Rob and the happy, harried, mom to 6 kids ages 22, 21, 21, 16, 11 and 9. I love holidays and throwing parties.
My favorite things to cook
Pasta, Roast Chicken, Pies, Cakes, homemade soups.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The Christmas Eve Feast of the Seven Fishes. All the traditional foods of our Italian/Irish/Floridian Easter from Pizza Rustica to Coconut cake.
My cooking triumphs
Thanksgiving dinner this year was especially good. The cornbread dressing and Indian-style cranberry chutney were new variations and big hits with the family.
My cooking tragedies
I baked two (not one, but two) pumpkin pies at Christmas and forgot the sugar.

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes
These were very very good! I doubled the recipe and found the batter a bit thick so I added more milk. Once when I made these i had about a cup of buttermilk to get rid of so I substituted that for the milk and added 3/4tsp of baking soda. Still came out great!

Jewish Apple Cake I
This cake is a hit wherever I bring it. Be careful not to over-bake it.

Vanilla Pumpkin Pie
This was really good. My husband, who does not especially like pumpkin pie, complemented me on this on Thanksgiving. The "best you have ever made" he said! I did add about a 1/4 tsp of nutmeg. I am making it again for Christmas Eve.
