Happily married for almost 20 years and have one daughter.
My favorite things to cook
Homemade pastas, my infamous cheesecake, all kinds of cookies, soups - you name it!
My favorite family cooking traditions
We all used to go to my aunts house when we were kids/teens and used to jar our own tomatoe sauce. We would do at least 20-25 bushels of plum tomatoes. We were tired, but had a blast! And, it was the best homemade gravy (yes, us Italians call tomatoe sauce "gravy") you ever tasted.
My cooking triumphs
Soup was always something I had a problem making. I always wound up putting too many noodles or too much rice in it. Got it down to perfection now!
My cooking tragedies
Believe it or not, none. I might have followed a recipe that I didn't like, but I never burned anything. I was never scared to experiment, which is why I believe I'm such a good cook today.
