I'm a married mother of two growing boys and I like cooking and baking. I'm fearless in the kitchen. Hey, if it doesn't work out, just make something else, right?
In addition to cooking, I also write, design jewelry and act.
My favorite things to cook
Chicken. It's SOOOO versatile. You can have it every night! I also like Pasta dishes and I LOVE to bake treats and breads.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Only "tradition" we have is making homemade gravy (red gravy---what others call "Pasta Sauce.")
I have never served jarred "sauce" to anyone.
Another tradition we have is a huge Christmas Eve open House: Italians celebrate Christmas Eve more than Christmas.
My cooking triumphs
Baklava (It's Greek, but I rock it), Italian Egg Biscuits, assorted cookies, Chicken Piccata,stuffed shells, quiche.
My cooking tragedies
I have three: My First meatloaf. Had a shell from adding too many breadcrumbs; a pasta primavera made to recipe, I found on the back of a pasta box. It was AWFUL! And a sweet and sour Chicken that was just gaaaak.
