It's Christmas cookie time. I see that AR and the buzz are all glowing with Christmas cookies. I enjoy giving cookies because it is a gift with love, made by me for you to show you how much I appreciate you. I only give the best of my work and eat the so-so
ones. :-) Nonetheless, you hope the…
American living between Italy and Belgium. I'm married to an Italian and a mom to three Italian/American girls - all teenagers. Celiac sufferer and allergic to ALL seafood, which is a huge bummer...especially in Italy. I don't know which I like more, airplanes or food but can say I don't care for airplane food!
My favorite things to cook
Sweet and savoury whatevers, doesn't mean that my creations are always appetizing. I like trying to adapt gluten recipes with non gluten alternatives. I enjoy the challenge. I prefer to use ingredients from their raw state or as least processed as possible. Mixing different types of GF ingredients is very interesting for learning their qualities. Most of the things I flub up get turned into pie crusts, coatings for baked chicken or bases for other dishes. It's like chemistry lab but you can eat the experiment. I also enjoy trying new ingredients found during my travels.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Burning bread. I get it from my mom. My dad taught me how to choose the worst line at the grocey store. :-)
My cooking triumphs
Every day. If I can get my kids to eat it, it's a triumph!
My cooking tragedies
I can't seem to make a decent Gluten Free pizza crust. Grump, grump.
