I have cooked with my mom as far back as I remember. I have great memories cooking with my grandmothers and great-aunt. They were the greatest cooks. I am a vegetarian, but I enjoy cooking for my family of meat eaters. I am gradually trying to change to healthier and organic foods.
My favorite things to cook
Pizza most of all, enchiladas, tacos, french onion soup, breads, appetizers, chocolate desserts, cookies...
My favorite family cooking traditions
Homemade bread passed down from my Italian great grandmother. Making Christmas cookies with my kids.
My cooking triumphs
I can make a great pizza, better than any you can get from any pizzeria, well, at least most of them.
My cooking tragedies
Trying to make petit fours.
