About Me
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy baking. I love Italian food--but I make all kinds/types of recipes--whatever appeals to me this week.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making cookies, fudge and cheese spread at Christmas.
My cooking tragedies
one tragedy happened in 8th grade home-ec--obviously, it traumatized me! Mrs. D'Amato had us making french toast--simple enough, eh? Well, there were five of us in the group. I had table setting duty that week. We were all supposed to help the main cook--Becky T. Well, we were more interested in talking than watching what we were doing. Someone handed Becky the sugar and she put all of it into the eggs and milk. We couldn't understand why our "batter" was so think--until we realized that the recipe called for 2 T sugar--not the two cups Beck was handed! We had "wonderful" carmelized french toast--or at least, we told Mrs. D'Amato how terrific it was--as we choked down the super sweet breakfast!
