Italian-American male living in New York City. I lived in Seattle for 24 years before returning to NYC in 2001. Big mistake. Don't ever do that.
My favorite things to cook
Italian food. Barbeque, Southern (USA). Dishes from other countries such as China, Vietnam, Morocco, Spain, Germany and France. I on occasion make my own bread, pizza, butter and different infused vinegars. I also bake occasionally. My pumpkin pie and red velvet cup cakes are very popular amoungst the masses (family and friends lol).
My favorite family cooking traditions
Macaroni with tomato sauce with meatballs and sausage.
My personal favorite dish is Eggplant Parmigina.
My cooking triumphs
I've cooked Thanksgiving dinner several times - alone. Just can't get any help in my house.
My cooking tragedies
I once made a baked Alaska and forgot to pre heat the oven.
That didn't go over very well lol.
