My favorite things to cook
Love to bake... cakes, pies, cookies and other yummy sweets. I also LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Italian!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year at Christmas we have a baking day and then the kids help decorate the sugar cookies. This is something I did as a child with my mother and I love being able to do it with my own children.
My cooking triumphs
I always doctor up a receipe (love the spices and everything taste better with garlic!) I've also mastered the perfect pie crust and everyone is always asking for my apple pie. I am usally the one who gets nominated to bring the desserts to our family gatherings.
My cooking tragedies
Once in awhile I like to experiment, I've had some suprisingly killer results and then I've had several that makes you go, "what were you thinking?".
