I have never cooked in a restaurant. Growing up, I've learned most about cooking meals by watching family members. I have also learned by trial and error and my husband was always the guinea pig! My husband and family have raved over meals I have cooked, most of which were created on a whim or inspired by meals that I have tried in restaurants.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook Italian food! But we've tried other ethnic foods as well.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Our family likes to get together to try new recipes or as we have done in the past, eat other ethnic foods. We've had Irish, Mexican, German and Italian nights and it has grown into a great tradition that the family loves. We try to do this two to three times a year and everyone brings their favorite recipe.
My cooking triumphs
I enjoy cooking. I enjoy cooking for family even more and I love to entertain during the holidays! Everyone looks forward to the wide array of food during the holidays!
My cooking tragedies
Chicken and dumplings in a slow cooker!!! NEVER TRYING THAT AGAIN!!!!
