About Me
I grew up in an Italian family where everyone helped with the meals, especially on the holidays when eating was an event on its own. I hope some of you can remember when you pretty much ate all day then took a nap and ate some more. Not very healthy but those were the days. Currently married to a wonderful woman with 4 grown children and 2 beautiful granddaughters. Came to have the nick name grumpy grandpa since I sometimes am grumpy in morning and granddaughter said comon grandpa don't be so grumpy. Sorry but I need my coffee in morning. Learned many recipes from Grandma and over the years just developed my cooking skills. Am a self taught cook and worked in several restaurants as well as catering. Currently enjoy cooking for family & friends and developing new recipes.
My favorite things to cook
Just about everything.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Dont really have any yet. we are working on it.
My cooking triumphs
Trying to figure out what to have for dinner and coming up with new and exciting dishes day after day and being successful. Developing a new recipe that works. Having a plan B in case of failure (take out).
My cooking tragedies
There are so many, we all have them. Try something new and looks good but tastes so bad the dog wont eat it.Go to plan B. Not to mention almost setting kitchen on fire and cut fingers but I wont go there.
