About this Cook
My husband and I have been married for 18 years. We have two beautiful children, a daughter (16) and a son (14). I grew up in Wisconsin, the youngest of 7 children. I work full-time in the printing industry, from the comforts of my home. My husband is from Italy, from a town called Aprilia, which is about 30 minutes from Rome. I learned a lot about Italian cooking from his mother. She came to stay with us for 7 months when each of our children were born. My husband and I both enjoy cooking, and we prepare meals at home 6-7 nights a week. One of us usually runs the kids to their activities, and the other stays home and cooks. We make a great team!

My favorite things to cook
I have a major sweet tooth and love to bake! Muffins, breads, cookies, cakes. My husband bakes homemade bread a couple of times a week. We eat a LOT of pasta, and enjoy making fresh pasta for Sunday dinner as a special treat!
My favorite family cooking traditions
When I was a young girl, my job was to do most of the candy and cookie making around the holidays. I still make the same things I made when I was a little girl, and am trying to hand down these traditions to my children as well. Every Thanksgiving, I make a big traditional Thanksgiving dinner. Both of our families live far away, so we always invite our friends or neighbors over to share this meal.
My cooking triumphs
Too many to count. Probably making yeast breads. After a couple of failures, I finally got it right.

Parmesan Roasted Acorn Squash
This was a nice savory alternative to the normal brown sugar/butter acorn squash recipes. We loved it! I did peel the squash (just as a personal preference). The parmesan cheese really adds a nice touch. Thanks!

Savory Baby Bok Choy
This was delicious, even though I over-cooked the bok choy a bit too much. Will make again. Thanks!

Polish Kielbasa and Pierogies
Dinner on the table in less than 30 minutes? Yes please! This was delicious, and my entire family gobbled this right up. After I cooked the onion and kielbasa, I removed it to a bowl and set aside. I boiled my pierogies for about 5 minutes, and then sauteed them in a bit of butter in the same pan where I cooked the onion and kielbasa, just until slightly browned, and then added the kielbasa and onion back to the pan and gave a quick reheat. This is one meal that I will be making again, no doubt. Thanks Johnsonville® for a great recipe!
