My husband & I retired to Cape Cod in 2001. I love to read cook books & try different dishes. I am limited as my husband is sort of a plan eater. However, he has come a very long way. So if he does not like it, I do not make it again. :) Not a problem!
My favorite things to cook
I love to make the old comfort foods that my grandmothers & mom made. My favorite is Braciolatini, Pizza, Lentil soup, Pasta Sauce, that we used to call Sunday Sauce. I also love appetizers & having appetizer parties.
I think that I like whatever I am cooking~I am happiest when I am cooking.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas my mom made her home made Spinach Ravoli. We all loved them so very much. I tried to do them once but they were not like moms. I really do not care to bake any longer however, I still make some of the Christmas cookies mom use to do. Can't disappoint our grandchildren & children.
My cooking triumphs
Trying new dishes & they come out great.
My cooking tragedies
Many year ago, right after we were married I had Christmas Day dinner for the whole family. Mom made her Spinach Ravioli & I did the Christmas sauce. I ran out of fridge space so put the sauce on the back porch. At dinner one of the family members said the meatballs were green. We had to trash every thing. Ravioli, Eggplant Parm. EVERY THING....:( I am still reminded every now & then about that Christmas. I certainly will never forget.
