My husband, neighbors, and friends all love my cooking which is why I picked expert...but I'm not sure I'm really an expert. My favorite place to cook is on my patio and I am about to start using my new Green Egg grill.
My favorite things to cook
Grilling outside is my favorite thing to do, I am half Italian and I also love Italian food. I bought the Green Egg grill partly because it will do pizzas like a brick oven, I'm so exited to try it. We are busy completing a table for it now.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Grandmother Elsa was the most amazing cook ever! I grew up on homemade pasta, gnocchi, melt in your mouth lasagna, as hard as I try my food never comes out as fabulous as hers mostly due to the fact that I buy the pasta while she pressed away laying it to dry all over the kitchen.
My cooking triumphs
Well I guess I would say that after it was our turn to have the the neighborhood dinner at our house...the bar was set pretty high. We did homemade pizzas and buffalo lasagna (I didn't tell them they were eating buffalo until after) but everyone loved it. And I didn't even have the outdoor pizza oven set up yet..so I'm determined to have even better pizzas!
My cooking tragedies
Oh, I'm sure there have been many. My husband always say's "Don't try something new when we have company." My gnocchi always comes out mushy too but I'm determined to get that down!
