I am a 27 year old mom of two boys, and I am a wife to an amazing military man. My youngest child eats anything I cook, while my oldest lived off of pop tarts for a whole year. I love to cook!! It is one of my simple pleasures in life. My favorite thing is to make an amazing meal and to see everyone enjoy it.
My favorite things to cook
I am Italian so I love to cook zugu (sicilian spaghetti sauce), Meatballs, anything involving noodles, and any gourmet recipe I can get my hands on. Actually I love to cook everything!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Spaghetti sauce of course, and we make sugar cookies with special frosting every year for christmas and I am always asked to bring my secret cranberry sauce recipe to Thanksgiving each year.
My cooking triumphs
The latest favorite for all was a tenderized chop with an italian cranberry stuffing. The three tier cake I made for my sons first birthday covered in different colors of fondant. It took 16 hours and I haven't baked a cake since then, but it was well worth it.
My cooking tragedies
Lemon Pasta....what a disaster.
