I'm a professional songwriter and higher education recruiter who happens to love cooking.
My favorite things to cook
Italian food, fresh salsas, grilled or smoked meats, marinades... anything with LOTS of flavor.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family used to make Gnocchi at reunions, and I was asked to make it last time. It was definitely an honor and people seemed to enjoy it, although it was NOTHING compared to my great aunt Amelia's cooking.
My cooking triumphs
Too few to even note, although I can make a quick, cheap and easy veggie pizza that'll make you completely ignore the fact that there's no meat on it.
My cooking tragedies
If I can't use more than 1000 characters for this section, I think I'll pass. :)
