I'm a happily married and mother to a wonderful little boy; I'm a financial expert by day and a model, actress, seamstress and exhausted human being by night.
My favorite things to cook
Italian food (especially family recipes), Asian Food, anything unique or out of Gourmet Magazine!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making "Christmas Soup" (AKA Italian Wedding Soup) every year for the holidays; Pizzeles from my mom, and my aunt's biscotti.
My cooking triumphs
I was just invited to be a finalist for Aetna's "Healthy Food Fight" competition. My recipe was selected by the Culinary Arts Institue of America to be re-created in person at the event on 10/16/10! I will be cooking for Sara Moulton from Food Network and Gourmet Magazine! If my entry wins, I will be flown to LA to cook for Bobby Flay, Cat Cora, Sara Moulton and Sunny Anderson! WISH ME LUCK!
My cooking tragedies
I attempted to bake my own wedding cake -- thank God I practiced first -- the hideous thing was covered in a thick layer of the most disgusting fondant ever, and was lobsided to boot. Needless to say, we left the cake to the professionals.
