I began cooking authentic Italian dishes with my grandmother as a toddler. I have always loved cooking and it continues to play a big role in my life. I am a high school English teacher in Boston, and I love it, but if I was ever to change fields, it would certainly be to open a bakery or cafe of some sort!
My favorite things to cook
One of my most requested meals used to be Chicken Picatta (I used my own alternate version of the Chicken Picatta II from this site), but now that I'm vegetarian, I'm all about making veggie-friendly dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I've been making gnocchi and other homemade Italian specialties with my family for years!
My cooking triumphs
The first time I successfully made homemade pasta on my own was certainly a triumph!
My cooking tragedies
I seem to have an uncanny knack for ruining bundt cakes. I think I'm about ready to give up on those things all together.
