born and raised in Ossining NY. Moved to a farm in Cranesville PA. then to Arizona. Love to cook and to garden (cause I can cook what I grow). I have been cooking since I was 8 years old. My mom always had to work so I would come home from school and start dinner so it would be almost done when she got home. I could read when I was around 3 years old so I could read and follow a recipe.
I now live in Christiansburg VA. as you can probably tell, I like small towns the best.
My favorite things to cook
I am Sicilian so Mediterranean food is my favorite. I make great meatballs. According to my friends and family, they are the world's best. Also fabulous lasagne, and all Italian food. My pie crust is to die for. Also great cookies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Lamb on Easter, Italian desserts on Christmas, corned beef and cabbage and Irish Soda bread on St. Patrick's day.
