If I were asked what I most like to do, I would say "prepare food." I find cooking therapeutic. It can be relaxing, fulfilling, creative and at times exciting.
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook things that make a fabulous presentation and taste fantastic, no matter what the cuisine.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking traditions are very important to me, especially on holidays. I try to carry on the heritage from my Italian family as well as my husband's German family.
My cooking triumphs
My cooking triumphs are yeast breads. All shapes and sizes, from braided to cloverleaf rolls.
My cooking tragedies
I stay away from crown roast of pork. I have tried it twice and both times were disappointments. Don't ask!
