I am 27 years old, married and have 2 kids and 1 on the way. I own a home business that allows me to stay home with my kids, work and cook to my heart's content. If I could do things over again I would have gone to culinary school instead of college.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook big fancy holiday meals. I also love to bake and create yummy desserts like Tiramisu. I am Italian by heritage and love to cook up traditional Italian food for my family.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Aunt Lee is an awesome Italian cook. She inherited recipies from her mother who cam over to the U.S. from Italy. I remember fresh pasta drying on the table and each holiday being even more special then the last.
My cooking triumphs
My first Thanksgiving and Christmas as a married gal in 1998, I cooked dinner for my husband's soldier buddies in Germany. Everything turned out perfect and I was able to give the guys a taste of home. I have been cooking for the holidays ever since and established my own traditions for what to cook.
My cooking tragedies
The only thing I ever messed up was a chicken and rice dish. I think the rice was old cause no matter what I did, it would not get soft!!! We ended up ordering pizza that night...LOL!
