My favorite things to cook
A lot of Southern Mediterranean dishes. My Mentor of sorts was wathcing and reading Nick Stellino's "Cucina Amore"
Pastas, meatless and seafood. and slow cooker recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Grandmother was from the Ukraine, so a lot of German style dishes, but mostly Southern Mediteranean (Italian)and Grilling.
My cooking triumphs
I've developed from scratch a heartburn free Oven Dressing in Italian tradition for Mother in law who always got heartburn.
My cooking tragedies
Many, during trial and error, but getting used to knowing how much of different types of spices to add without over doing it....especially spicy.. We live and learn, but fear not, to try again..
