I was living in Orlando for a couple years, and just moved back to Pittsburgh. I love this city, and I love the Steelers! My boyfriend and I live together, and I try to cook for him every night. Just like they say - the way to a man's heart is through his stomach!
My favorite things to cook
I mainly like to make Italian dishes, or dishes with chicken and shrimp. Lately, I have gotten turned on to pork also. I would like to try some more complex meals. Oh, I always make breakfast in the morning since I truly believe it's the best meal of the day, but often neglected!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I'm very used to having meat in all meals. Stews and homemade soups were always around during the winter time. Spaghetti was at least once a week!
My cooking triumphs
It seems like things always turn out the best the very first time I make them! I was so excited when my very first attempt at an apple pie turned out great!
My cooking tragedies
Once I made mashed potatoes that came out lumpy and incredibly salty! They were gross!
