I'd like to think of myself as a laid back person. If I could teach the world to chill, I would. Less drama equals more fun. I'd still consider my cooking to be in the beginner to intermediate range.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking on the grill, and I really like baking deserts. Cooking italian food in general is a great experience for me as it results in great food and brings back fond memories of when I lived in Italy.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Each year, after thanksgiving dinner, my father and I spend a few hours making turkey soup using what was left over from dinner that couldn't be used in turkey sandwiches later. I love the time spent together, and the aroma that fills the air. Good times!
My cooking triumphs
One of my all time favorites was pheasant with wild rice baked in a dutch oven over a camp fire. Another proud moment was after I made pumpkin cookies for the first time and they were amazing.
My cooking tragedies
I have not idea why, but I'm cursed when it comes to baking brownies. Seriously, I had a friend officially ban me from cooking brownies for life.
