About this Cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
My love of cooking (well, eating) started back when I was quite young, just 4 or 5 years old. My big Italian family would gather every Sunday at Grandma's and she, along with all the aunts, would whip up an incredible feast for 20+ people. Every. Single. Week. Even at such a young age, I knew what they were doing in that kitchen was magic. My family has shrunk over the years as members have moved, but some of us are recreating that tradition today to give the younger generation a taste of the magic you can make when you mix family and food.

Grilled Guacamole
I think this is a case of "don't mess with a good thing." Grilling took a bit of the fresh taste away from the avocado, though I hesitate to say it tasted smoky. I also didn't like the sour cream - especially reduced fat! Overall, it was OK. But a stellar guac can be made with much less effort.

Korean Barbequed Beef
Very tasty recipe and easy to prepare. Not sure how authentic it is, but delicious regardless. 4 stars instead of 5 because I felt the depth of flavor just wasn't there.
