Me and Ozzy at the beach
About this Cook
My husband and I have 10 grandchildren, 2 dogs, a Westie and a lab and enjoy traveling and the beach.
My favorite things to cook
I love new recipes to try out but have a bad habit of trying them on friends. So far they have come out great for the most part. I secretly love baking bread but would like to try to keep carbs to a minimum as they are my secret love!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Italian background makes me proud so I pride myself in trying new Italian dishes and maintaining the old traditional ones. Our family has many traditional dishes and with 4 daughters, they seem to be carrying them on with their families as well.
My cooking triumphs
Lots, but my triumphs are the holiday meals when I used to do all the cooking. With 5 children it was a task but I usually can pull off a large meal with no problem. Even now that they are all married, I can still put together a meal for 8 friends and it isn't too daunting. We love to entertain and that usually means eating.
My cooking tragedies
Usually something having to do with the gas grill. Once I made a cedar plank salmon and the plank caught on fire, but I was able to rescue the salmon.
