I used to be notorious for not knowing how to cook-and having epic fails at every attempt...until I attempted a recipe from this site that is still my boyfriend's favorite meal ever.
My favorite things to cook
Lasagna, spaghetti sauce, anything Italian. I grew up in an Italian family...and you can use lots of wine in virtually every Italian recipe.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making lasagna has become a family night of listening to Edith Piaf, drinking wine, and laughing-it's wonderful.
My cooking triumphs
Lasagna, Tiramisu Layer Cake, Cornish Game Hens, Full Thanksgiving spread, Black Bean Tortilla Pie, and I do a TERRIFIC steak and asparagus night-super simple-but super delish!
My cooking tragedies
Zucchini Chocolate Chip Muffins...I attempted to make them as a treat for my staff and they did not look like muffins, tasted kind of okay, and I ended up with a bad burn on my arm. Fail.
