I love to cook. I'm happiest when I have the kitchen to myself and I'm preparing dinner for family or friends.
My favorite things to cook
Love making desserts --especially apple pies or cakes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Being Italian, we love our pasta. I make spaghetti and lasagna regularly. The spicier the better. Mom's a great cook and taught me well.
My cooking triumphs
Took me a long time to master my Mom's pie crust recipe.
My cooking tragedies
Too many early pie crusts went into the garbage. Not to mention the many tears shed and phone calls to Mom!
