I said it. I actually said it. And I meant it. I even wrote it on a public forum. THAT word. You know, the word that musn’t be pronounced in certain company. That seedy word. I hope I didn’t offend too many people when I used it. If I did please accept my sincerest (yawn) apologies. We… MORE

About this Cook
American living in Italy. I'm married to an Italian and I am a mom to three Italian/American girls - all teenagers with bottomless pits for stomachs. My real love for cooking came while living in Italy. I spent a lot of time with people from Sicily and even stayed there for a spell. I was introduced to a Mediterranean diet and still prefer it to any other. Over the last 18 years I have lived in and travelled through Italy for my non-food profession, but have always tried to learn the local cuisine that makes each region in Italy so unique. I'm also a celiac sufferer and allergic to seafood, which is a huge bummer. I don't know which I like more, airplanes or food, but can say I don't care for airplane food!
My favorite things to cook
I get in a rut, even in Italy. My family likes specific flavours and over the years I have stuck to them. I am trying to branch out but my favourites are still soups and pasta.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Burning bread. My mom started it. I am doing my best to continue the tradition. o_0 My dad used to make one of us stand in front of the oven to watch the bread, if you moved from your assigned position, he yelled at you to get back! :-) Dad runs a tight ship (ex-Navy) and doesn't like burnt bread!
My cooking triumphs
If I can keep my three teenagers full and still have enough money to pay the light bill, it's a triumph!!
My cooking tragedies
When I was about 15, I made a pumpkin pie using the recipe off the can of condensed milk. I forgot to add the milk in the can. :-( I got a puddle in a pie crust and have been ribbed by my siblings every Thanksgiving since.

Butter Crescents
Very straightforward and easy recipe. My 14-year old daughter made these twice. Everyone enjoys them. She found better results when beushing with milk instead of egg. Thank you for the recipe.

3-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies
Ladies and gentlemen get your cold glasses of milk ready! Super easy and super delicious. This whips up-even by hand- in no time. I even used 3/4 cup of sugar and they were awesome. Thank you for this recipe.

Spicy Tofu Stir Fry
Fantastic! I used fresh cayenne peppers. I added some "spiralized" carrots, squash and green zucchini. I used Sriracha and it really goes well in this dish. Thank you for the recipe.
