I love food! Well, more like adore it. I don't eat at restaurants much, usually because I or my partner can make most dishes just as good, if not better, at home.
My favorite things to cook
My daddy's spaghetti/bolognese sauce. Use it for spaghetti and lasagna, two of my favorite dishes and most loved. I also love chicken, it is one of my favorite ingredients.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Dad's lasagna and almond roca. Used to do tons of baking for the holidays but have given it up in recent years, but my Dad and I would fight over kitchen time, though my parents had what most would consider a HUGE country kitchen. Neither one of us were very good at sharing prep space :)
My cooking triumphs
Perfecting my father's bolognese recipe..figuring out the secred ingredient on my own til one day it finally tasted just like his!!
My cooking tragedies
I cannot grill chicken for some reason. The briquets always give out before my meat is done and I always need a back up plan on finishing dinner.
