i am at my happiest on a basketball court or in the kitchen.
My favorite things to cook
chicken paprikas, red chicken curry, lamb roast, braised pork belly, braised beef short ribs, anything else braised...also risotto with lots of mushrooms.
My favorite family cooking traditions
my dad's family recipe spaghetti and meatballs
My cooking triumphs
all my past successes will pale in comparison to the day i finally make a very very good Julia Child hollandaise, no blenders or double boilers...
My cooking tragedies
Used powdered sugar instead of flour to make alfredo sauce for a 2nd or 3rd date...
