I am a foodie through and through. Love to eat, cook and think about food and recipes. I've been coming to and recommending this website for years but am ready to get involved with the site now by reviewing and submitting recipes.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook both asian and southwestern styles of food and cajun as well. I grew up in an Italian household but never developed a love for cooking it as much as just eating it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Growing up in my house, Christmas Eve was my absolute favorite day of the year because of the traditional dinner we would have. Spaghetti with a red shrimp sauce, stuffed mussels, antipasta and of course lots of love!
My cooking triumphs
I have learned to roll my own sushi and have actually moved into the area of working with raw fish. A few months ago I rolled 200 pieces for a party I hosted.
My cooking tragedies
Dry roasts! I am absolutely tragic when it comes to the slow cooker. I end up drying everything out.
