About this Cook
I grew up in a household where dad did all the cooking and mom did all the baking. My whole family, being mostly Italian, has a passion for good food and a variety of flavors. My younger brother is a professional chef.
My favorite things to cook
Anything with bite to it. My influences trend towards Italian, Greek, and Southwest flavors.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Lamb for Easter. Nothing beats a nice leg of lamb with fresh herbs and olive oil.
My cooking triumphs
My personal favorite is my Green and Gold chili. It is ridiculously expensive to make, but has such a tremendous mixture of textures and flavors that I crave it year-round. My friends and family all asked for the recipe before finishing their first bowls!
My cooking tragedies
Guacamole... The first time I attempted it, it was a 2 hour utter failure... Haven't tried it since.

Mustard Based BBQ Sauce
This is a great base sauce or paint for pork, especially ribs or pulled pork sandwiches. My personal taste leans towards something with more bite, so I add a hint of Worchestershire saucea, garlic powder, cayenne and chipotle pepper. The smoky flavor of the chipotle really accents the mustard/vinegar base!
