He prefers a basic simple meal, especially Greek food while I like to try new recipes. I miss New York restaurants but the fresh seafood in the Gulf Coast is great.
My favorite things to cook
From this site, my favorite things to cook are stuffed peppers, mashed potatoes, coconut shrimp and banana bread. Although I have a shelf full of cookbooks, Allrecipes is sooooo much more useful.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom is a fantastic cook and loves to host. So I didn't spend much time in the kitchen other than eating and being in charge of cleaning up. Now that I am married I am learning.
