My interest in cooking started very young. The first real food item I made on my own, was an apple pie when I was 9 years old. I love to cook! I am always trying new things. I have always had a knack for cooking and it has been a real source of pleasure for me.
My favorite things to cook
I love Italian food as I am Italian (as well as portuguese, french,and a few others). I also really enjoy creating Soups and stews.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite family traditions were the family potlucks and barbecues we had for special ocassions and during the summers. Everyone would make their "specialties" or recipes that had been passed down in our family.
My cooking triumphs
My cooking triumphs would be the wedding cake I made for my parents 25th wedding anniversary. It came out beautifully.
My cooking tragedies
Like many my tradgedies are numerous as with anyone who loves to experiment.
