I'm a 31 yr old warrior or terror depends on who you ask. Been in the kitchen since 5 w/mom's help :-). Learning to expand palate and have a willing partner in the adventures of cooking ride!!!
My favorite things to cook
Anything Italian seeks to come natural. Luckily I live in an area where some of the normally "hard to find" are readily available. Been working on getting down a good alfredo. Surprisingly the good ole fashioned hamburger takes top votes also. To friends and family they are a must whenever I can be pinned down on a rare Saturday afternoon.
My favorite family cooking traditions
There's something about Thanksgiving for me. Maybe it's Aunt Rosetta's dressing with my mother's turkey, or my grandmother's from scratch buttered rolls? I just know that on this 1 holiday we all feast on any meat, vegetable, cake, pie etc. . .and then pay for it for about a week in doublin up the exercise rountines.
My cooking triumphs
Being able to create dishes that people enjoy, and request. I've come a long way from burning things up!
My cooking tragedies
After spending nearly 50 bucks and about 2 hours on the "perfect" lasagna, while taking it out of the oven after baking it tipped and fell onto the door. I nearly cried bad enough dinner was lost, but the mess was even worse (cheeses).
