My favorite things to cook
Stromboli, Baked Ziti, Zucchini Bread, Bronwies. I like to bake a lot of various things. And because I grew up in a highly Italian-American area (New Jersey) but live in one that isn't, I make a lot more Italian food, especially to serve up to family that has never had some of the things!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have really good memories of helping my mom bake, and I love to bake with my daughter.
My cooking triumphs
Combining several recipes to get the taste I want. Sharing dishes with friends and family and being asked several times for the recipe. I'm also willing to try new things, even if they don't come out as desired.
My cooking tragedies
I have a bad habit of not setting the timer and sometimes leaving things in longer than desired.
