I have always enjoyed cooking but never really had the time until I retired about 3 years ago. I enjoy spoiling the special people in my life by serving delicious meals with artful presentation.
My favorite things to cook
Anything Italian! Pretty desserts!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Turkey stuffing; Dump Cake; Pumpkin Cake; St. Patrick's Day Feast
My cooking triumphs
Italian Meatloaf; Mexicali Stuffed Peppers; Hubby's Favorite Pork Chops
My cooking tragedies
Lasagna with bechamel and marinara sauce. Spent hours on this dish because it sounded so wonderful and ended up very disappointed with the blandness. Preferred my own recipe which doesn't require all the labor intensity this recipe had.
