My favorite things to cook
I like to cook something special and different from time to time to give my mom a break. She does most of the cooking and it's mostly traditional Italian meals... I like to make really hearty meals. I like soups, casseroles, pasta, bbq, and anything exotic and ethnic!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making Easter bread, frying fish, and dumplings! Italian's can make dumplings from almost any vegetable!!!
My cooking triumphs
I made a meat pie called a tortiere with a homemade pie crust!
After countless fails, I finally figured out how to manipulate the crust!
My cooking tragedies
My first cheesecake was a flop... I used chocolate chip cookie dough because I didn't have graham crumbs...
