I am a CPA (so I need an exciting hobbie, like getting fat) trust me.
My favorite things to cook
I am an Italian Stallion, so I am always intrigued by other people's tomato sauce recipes (gravy). Also, I check out variations on standard Italian fare, such as "tofu lasagne", never as good as Grandma's, but worth a shot. I am very open minded when it comes to feeding the belly. I like all kinds of grub and will try anything. I am also a hot sauce fanatic and I love to barbeque.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family has always gone overboard over the holidays. The mainstay is spaghetti in an olive oil, anchiove and black olive sauce that tastes WAY better than it sounds. Oilia y olio???...I still have no idea how to spell it, but phonetically it is something like... I-ya, Ooh-ya.
My cooking triumphs
Feeding my wife and kids every day.
My cooking tragedies
Many, many in the learning process. But we all learn the best from failure.
