My favorite things to cook
My best recipes are probably my chicken enchiladas, slow-cooker brisket, steak with brandy-cream sauce, red velvet cupcakes, and sweet potato pie with a gingersnap crust.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making sugar cookies at Christmas, making eggplant parm with eggplants from my mother's garden.
My cooking triumphs
Mastering the perfect steak.
My cooking tragedies
Too many to count, but it's all worth it!
