My name is Melissa. Born and raised in Northern, NY. I love cooking/baking and trying new recipes that I find here on allrecipes as well as old family favorites.
My favorite things to cook
I really enjoy preparing meals, dinners mostly but I enjoy making anything that taste good too!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every April 30th my two sisters and I prepare a gourmet meal for our whole family to celebrate our parents Anniversary. Every year we try to find something new. We've been doing it for over 10 years now!
My cooking triumphs
I made a wedding cake for my parents 25th Anniversary a couple years ago and it turned out awesome! My triumph!
My cooking tragedies
I once was making Italian Casserole and my mom makes homemade spaghetti sauce, while I was opening the jar somehow I broke the edge and it fell into the sauce. It looked like a clean cut so I found the piece and took it out needless to say my dad found the other piece while he was eating a piece and chipped one of his teeth on it. We threw the rest away. He still picks on me when I make it making sure there is no glass in it. :) I'm just glad he didn't swallow it, I'll never do that AGAIN!
