Hello fellow cooks!!! I grew up in an Italian home where my mother's cooking was a favorite among our neighbors on a nightly basis. My mother taught me to cook, saying "some day you'll need to cook for yourself". I am a 36 year old male, and proud to cook whatever recipes come my way.
.....One thing that irks me about peoples' reviews of a recipe.....they say "I LOVED this recipe. My family LOVED this recipe except I used this instead of that and changed this.....".....then people...you did NOT make the recipe....you made YOUR recipe!
My favorite things to cook
Italian, Mexican, Gourmet, I have just started learning to smoke foods, both hot & cold.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Waking up to the smell of fresh, homemade sauce on Sunday mornings and having breakfast consisting of coffee and fried meatballs!!!
My cooking triumphs
Although I could NEVER match my mom's homemade spaghetti sauce, I have come very close to re-creating it.
My cooking tragedies
Actually I have had more than 1 tradgedy while using the slow-cooker of all things!!!!! (Example: Burning ribs by not using enough BBQ sauce)
