I live with my boyfriend in Queens and use him as my taste tester for all the recipes I find here.
My favorite things to cook
Cake, cookies, fudge, bread, chili, soup, pasta, casseroles
My favorite family cooking traditions
Scrambled eggs on Easter morning, pork chops and sauerkraut at New Year's, freezing hundreds of Christmas cookies and having Christmas in July. My mom taught me the art of a chewy snickerdoodle and how to make a good tomato sauce from scratch.
