I am a mom to a beautiful 9 month old little girl. I've had to change my cooking style since my daughter has been born since I'm now more pressed for time and energy! But I love the feeling of cooking a meal at the end of the day while she sits in her booster seat and watches me while she eats Cheerios!
My favorite things to cook
I adore baking. If I could, I would just bake all the time. But, as my Grandma would say "you can't feed a man cake all the time!"
My favorite family cooking traditions
The holidays are really special to me and cooking is a big part of the holidays. I come from a big Italian family, and every holiday we are packed into the kitchen cooking together. Recently, my mom taught me how to make our family's tomato sauce. She learned from her mom as well. I hope to pass this on to my kids someday and keep up the tradition!
My cooking triumphs
I made a Buche de Noel for Christmas last year. I was so nervous because there were so many steps! It came out beautifully and tasted great too.
My cooking tragedies
I made jerk chicken on the grill this summer. I used way too much seasoning on the chicken. Wow!!! We love chicken, but this was bad!
