Living around the country and traveling abroad has given me an appreciation for regional cuisines.
My favorite things to cook
The trifecta - a perfect steak, a good red wine, and dark chocolate
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother's spaghetti sauce and other Italian dishes.
My cooking triumphs
Darn fine pizza crust. Some great cheesecake.
My cooking tragedies
I've never made anything good in my slow cooker.
