Recently relegated to a wheelchair, I've retired early from the Federal Government. I am a widow. I have 3 grown children and 5 of the most beautiful grandkids a person could ever want.
My favorite things to cook
I am a professional cake decorator. I love making pasta from scratch and trying to replicate my sicilian nana's recipes. They were all in her head.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holiday dinners have several sides that go back at least 5 generations. It's important to me to see those recipes survive past my generation.
My cooking triumphs
Probably some of my Italian dishes and my decorated cakes.
My cooking tragedies
most anything asian except a simple stir fry.
