I do love to create messy things in the kitchen
My favorite things to cook
I love making pasta sauces, from marinaras to vodkas and alfredos
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandpa (a Greek immigrant) had a blue plate restaurant in Moline, IL called "The Coney Island"
My cooking triumphs
My pasta sauces are usually very well-received.
My cooking tragedies
adding too much baking powder three times in a row to almond brickle. What a wast of good ingredients.
