I'm a mommy to a beautiful baby girl, 2 cats, and one silly dog.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook Italian food, my specialty is eggplant parmigiana and baked ziti. I would love to learn more about baking.
My favorite family cooking traditions
One of the things I remember most is watching my mom make decorated cakes. I love watching her make frosting roses. I've tried and failed many times. I used to love to lick the frosting beaters and bowls.
My cooking triumphs
I made a chocolate cake w/ chocolate frosting completely from scratch for my birthday this year. I put piped rosettes w/ strawberries on the top.
My cooking tragedies
I was on a low carb diet and had some cinnamon flax cereal. I wanted a meatloaf but couldn't use breadcrumbs. I had read that you could use flax to make a low carb version. I forgot my flax was cinnamon flavored and used it. I'm gagging just thinking about that meatloaf.
