Italian Cook from 100% Italian Family who was overweight and loved to eat.
Its all about the dish for my family!
Superficial? Perhaps but what else are Italians good for?
My favorite things to cook
Main course dinners.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My own sauce (no, I don't call it "gravy", gravy is brown and I put in on my meatloaf), meatballs.
My cooking triumphs
Fish dishes. Always had a hard time making it look pretty when its all done! Finally found one recipe (on Allrecipes)that is easy and it "pretty"!!
My cooking tragedies
Karen's Rice Pudding! Its the best I've ever tasted. But for some reason I just can't get it right...I think she's purposely not telling me something important. I stand and stir for 1 full hour..non-stop...and its still crunchy in the end!! AAAhhhh
