About this Cook
I am 23 years old. I am married to my high school sweetheart, James. We have two beautiful little girls, a 2 1/2 year old and a little 5 month old. I am Italian so Italian cooking is what I love to eat and make. I also love baking cakes, cookies and anything sweet. I took culinary arts in high school. I watch a lot of cooking and travel shows. I am a huge smooth jazz fan and I love to travel.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make anything Italian. I love the smell of garlic and pasta sauce, so any recipe that calls for those two ingredients I love to cook. I also have a big sweet tooth and love to bake anything with sugar. My favorites are cupcakes, cake, cookies, ice cream, pies........ pretty much anything. I also love to create anything that has a lot of color. I am big on eating with my eyes as well as my mouth.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Any thing Italian. Sausage and peppers is a dish that everyone in my family makes. We make our own pasta and pizza sauce.
My cooking triumphs
I made my daughter a 3 tier birthday cake for her two year birthday party. It was the best chocolate cake I have ever had. It was homemade of course.... and it held up very well. I used fondant and modeling chocolate to create colorful bows and ribbons. I was also told that I make the best apple pie.
My cooking tragedies
Beef stew. I am not a big stew person.. my husband liked it but I thought it was disgusting.
