There is nothing I love better than attempting a difficult recipe and mastering it! I confess that I just began cooking a year ago, but in the year I have made quite a lot! I appreciate recipes from "real" people.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook pasta and make desserts of all kinds.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family makes a mean pasta sauce -a recipe inherited from my great grandma Galati. My dad makes sausage and peppers and my mother, chicken cacciatore.
My cooking triumphs
Apple & Key Lime pie. Pasta with gorgonzola cream sauce. It's 2011 and I have many, many recipes to try! To be continued...
My cooking tragedies
Chocolate cake! Can you believe I screwed up chocolate cake?! That was in the beginning of my career. :) I also tried a recipe here that was supposed to resemble a cake with Butterfinger bars on top and sweet condensed milk. Yikes. That was a major disaster!
