I am a passionate Italian foodie and a confirmed recipe-aholic. After much prodding, I have finally jumped into the blogosphere and started a recipe blog where I can indulge in my love of baking and cooking and where I can share all my family favorites with family and friends. You can find a treasure trove of my favorite recipes on www.fransfavs.com Stop by and visit!
My favorite things to cook
There is literally nothing I don't like to cook with the exception of liver and onions! I still can't understand why something that smells so good cooking tastes so bad.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love cooking my family's favorite dishes/desserts at every holiday throughout the year. There are so many it would take way more than 1,000 characters to describe them all but here's just a few: my special turkey stuffing at Thanksgiving, sweet potato casserole with apples on T day, my chocolate mousse truffle cake on special birthdays, molten chocolate cakes with chocolate mint sauce on Valentine's Day, pecan pie with its secret ingredient for holidays and my husband's birthday (it's his favorite), swan cream puffs for special dinners and occasions--and many, many more!
My cooking triumphs
I've been cooking for close to 50 years, so there have been many!
My cooking tragedies
The biggest "tragedy" was when I spilled half of my husband's special 50th birthday dinner on the floor when the pan was too heavy for me to carry! There was barely enough left for us to eat!!
