I'm Italian & Finnish, & I love to experiment with the cultural foods of my family. I started cooking when I was 8 & fell in love with it. I'm one of those women who always has a glass of wine while she cooks.
My favorite things to cook
Vegetables and tofu! Lately been experimenting with DIY sauces, salad dressings, etc. Anything low calorie & nutritious - As little preservatives as humanly possible!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My maternal grandmother is Finnish, & I love homemade nissu. I also love Christmas at my paternal grandfather's house, where the whole Italian side of my family gets together for the feast of the seven fishes. (RIP Nonno 2012)
My cooking triumphs
Anytime my husband tells someone how awesome my cooking is.
