About this Cook
Im a 27 yr old mother of 1. I am a born and raised Texan but i am currently living in Italy with my husband who is italian. Since living in Italy i have eaten many different foods i would not have tried back home. Being in Italy has opened up a broader range of cooking for me now. What we have that is Italin at home in the U.S. is nothing compared to here. Italian food is still not on my top 3.. but it did make it to the top 5.
My favorite things to cook
Mexican and Southern foods are my specialty. Being from Texas, i love a little kick. Since ive been living in Italy i have been cooking more things from "scratch".
My favorite family cooking traditions
We have fish frys for every reunion. We always have plenty of different dishes at each holiday.
My cooking triumphs
I have made more things from scratch, and this website has helped. Since not every ingredient is here in Italy.. i have to search and/or make it myself.
My cooking tragedies
ive had alot.... but making it perfect takes out the experimenting in cooking.
