Other than cooking, I love to garden and spend time at the beach.
My favorite things to cook
Pastas and Chicken dishes are my favorite things to cook for dinner but I love the challenge of creating decadent desserts!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Being from a big Italian family I always enjoy the traditional Sunday supper.......Pasta with gravy (spaghetti sauce), big spicy meatballs,sausage or braciole, crusty bread and tossed salad followed by espresso and fruit.
My cooking triumphs
If I do say so myself, my Christmas Brunches are taking on a legendary quality. I believe it will become a "remember when" for my children and theirs.
My cooking tragedies
I didn't really know how to cook when I got married. My new husband had two preteens who had only known his mother's fine cooking. Every night something was burnt or undercooked. I wanted to scream when they had the audacity to complain because I was doing my best. (They love my cooking now and are always turning up at my house at dinnertime with their husbands and kids!)
