I'm just a happy new wife who loves expressing herself through cooking and uses it to unwind after a stressful work day. We try to eat pretty cleanly and I love how I have control over food when its prepared at home - so many awesome flavor combos out there!
My favorite things to cook
I think I pretty much like to cook anything! The only thing I would say I don't like to do is deep fry things. Something about it makes me think I will immediately burn my house down. =/ Eeps.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Both of my parents love to cook as do their parents. My dad and his family are from Italy, so a lot of what I make tends to be influenced by that. On my mom's side though, my grandma is a gourmet chef and she literally has 4000+ cookbooks. Is that not the craziest thing you have ever heard? But she definitely can cook, so I guess it is worth it! I just love cooking with family, it brings everyone together and you can enjoy the results! (Hopefully, ha ha)
