I'm of Italian descent, so Cooking = Love, lol! I have no formal training, and I'm hardly a gourmet chef, but I can usually get the job done.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy bringing my slow-cooker to work on overtime Saturdays, and letting lunch cook while I work. My co-workers rarely complain.
My favorite family cooking traditions
When being asked to contribute to my grade school's cookbook, my poor mother quipped, "If I don't burn it, the kids are disappointed now." To her horror, they published it!
My cooking triumphs
The 20-pound Lasagna of Doom!
My cooking tragedies
Subsequent attempts to recreate the 20-pound Lasagna of Doom, lol! Lightning only struck once with that recipe.
