I collect and love to read cookbooks. But since the internet has so many wonderful sites like this one I dont really buy as often as I would like too.
My favorite things to cook
Dinners are my favorite I love to have theme dinner parties. Always looking for new things to do.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Italian all the way. I love to watch the Italian cooks. So much love put into the food. My memories of my wonderful mother in law cooking and holidays are among my treasured memories.
My cooking triumphs
My Flag Cake from the Barefoot Contessa was not only beautiful but delicous. But alas my camera was broke and no cell phones with cameras then So I have no picture of it.
My cooking tragedies
Many but I think when I was first married Chicken Tetrazini took me all day to do and it tasted terrible we had to go out for pizza.
