I love to try new recipes and usually try them on my guests (No kidding!). I hardly ever follow a recipe fully. Usually I end up adding more of the ingredients that I like. I like making up dishes and usually am surprised at how good they turn out. (Her husband seconds this!!)
My favorite things to cook
Love to cook pastas, pizzas, soups and chicken dishes. Love to come up with various marinades for different meats.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday because everyone has a menu request and I try to fix them what they like. It's fun and a challenge! We cook the turkey(Lots of rosemary)simply for tradition. We love steaks, and of course the non-traditional mashed garlic cauliflower, vegetable dressing,sweet potato casserole,green bean casserole and rolls. Those are all the favorites!
Christmas is usually Italian:)
And, we must not forget the desserts!
My cooking tragedies
Serving your friends a delicious meal and somewhere in the middle of it your friend's husband asks, "Is this a bandaid?" You want to die!!! Thanks goodness they are your real friends and still love you!
