My favorite things to cook
I have a raw talent for baking, which I love to put to use often, making all sorts of sweets! But, I wanted to improve my cooking ability. (I was bored with the same dinners over and over) In the last year I have worked hard at making a new meal each week. It's been an exciting and mostly delicious adventure!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I still love making cookies with my Mom! No tradition though, just hope to pass along the love & excitement of cooking & baking to my kids!
My cooking triumphs
Over the past year, making new meals each week, I've become really good at 2 cuisines, Italian & Mexican. I visited a place in Chicago called Maggianos and they are famous for a dish called Rigatoni "D". I loved it and had to see if I had the skills to recreate it. It was so amazing!
My cooking tragedies
O gosh... Where do I start! lol Lots of cookie flops, and terrible pancakes, and crappy pastas & Porkchops.
