I'm a fairly energetic mom of 2 and a half (still pregnant as of June 12, 2010) and I absolutely LOVE to find my way around a kitchen. I hate cleaning up, however! :)
My favorite things to cook
I'm a dessert junkie, and unfortunately, so is my family who tend to be my "guinea pigs" when it comes to that and Italian food.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Sitting with my grandmother and listening to her tell stories, in her kitchen as she cooked. seriously! I learned a LOT from her, before becoming a wife and mother.
My cooking triumphs
My husband is a simple man who loves very simple down-home cooking. Unfortunately I prefer flavor, so we kind of clash, but he's gained weight since we met, so I'm doing my job! My greatest triumph is mastering my chocolate chip cookie. chewiest cookie EVER!
My cooking tragedies
the summer of 97 (j/k), but hey, at least I didn't set my kitchen on fire by microwaving soup! (my sister did that one! we laughed for years over it)
