I am married for 28 years to my highshcool sweetheart and best friend. We have 1 daughter in college.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake. I come from a family of bakers, my uncle was a baker in the Navy and my mom and her sister were bakers at a school for more than 25 years each.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I really enjoy when all the women in the family (aunts and cousins) get together to prepare our huge holiday meals and also to prepare all the cookies and food for our annual St. Joseph Altar( it is an old Italian tradition).
My cooking triumphs
Everyone loves my cocoon cookies and fudge. I have people start asking in October if I am making them for Christmas. Also everyone love my lasagne, egg rolls and head cheese. I get lots of requests for them whenever a pot luck is planned.
My cooking tragedies
Not too many tragedies in my cooking liFe. Just once that I remember I tried to cook a roast in a crock pot with dried onion soup and it came out terrible. Not even the dog would eat it.
