My favorite things to cook
I love to rediscover the traditional recipes I remember from childhood.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Italian cookies at Christmas time, awesome barbecues and crab boils in the Summertime, slow cooking in the Winter
My cooking triumphs
I recreated the recipe for my grandmother's hard boiled egg cookies by researching the ingredients online and combining the recipes until they tasted just like I remember!
My cooking tragedies
The first time I tried to make my grandmother's pizza rustica I made it too tall and it never cooked in the middle! Also, I have never mastered her delicious wheat pie, but I will some day!
