My favorite things to cook
I love to cook poultry in different ways. Chicken and turkey are so easy to prepare in ways that appear to be elaborate but are usually quite simple.Pasta sauces are a favorite of mine,as well.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My heritage is Italian and Polish, but we grew up mostly on Italian cooking, so recreating my Grandpa's Italian sausage was a tradition for many years. We are reviving next Christmas so the grandchildren will be able to taste this simple, delicious family holiday staple.
My cooking triumphs
The first time I brined a turkey, it came out juicy and delicious. It was 20 pounds and not easy to handle, but everyone loved it. It made wonderful soup, as well.
