I am an artist by trade, cook by hobby and hunger :).
My favorite things to cook
Anything with chicken and sweet potatoes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom is first generation Italian Immigrant. So I have fond memories making gnocchi and ravioli by hand. Eggplant and chicken parm are my faves. I also love the potato pancakes, pierogies and fried pork chops my mom would make. Nummies.
My cooking triumphs
My twist on a classic peanut butter cookie. Jaimie Lady's Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies!
I also have good luck with many recipes I find on this site.
My cooking tragedies
Anything I attempt to make while drinking.
