I love to practise new foods on my friends and get honest results to see if recipe is a keeper or don't make it again.
My favorite things to cook
Love to cook italian foods.I have a hard time following a recipe.Being an italian I was taught a little or or a little less.In baking I do follow recipe to the letter the first time. After that I usually tweck it to my liking.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Italian cookies,stuffed pizza. It's like a family size calzone with onions,potatoes,spinach and saugage.
My cooking triumphs
Pizza,manicotti,spag.sauce,brasied short ribs.stuffed calzones,and lots more.
My cooking tragedies
I made some italian maccarone cookies and used the eggwhites that come in a box. What a mess. They went from a walnut sz. to at least 3".ran into each other and made one big blob. All over cookie sheet.Stuck to pan. Soaked with hot water for 2 days.Then made the recipe again with fresh eggwhites and the cookies were perfect.
