About 5 years ago I decided to go mostly vegetarian and buy some organic. I have been cooking since I was in my 20's and love it but never loved it enough to make it my living. I cook for pleasure and because I'm too anal about what is served behind closed doors.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook with tofu and vegies, fresh seafood is my next love. Making unusal salads is also a favorite of mine.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother was an excellent cook as was my aunt. My aunt specialized in Italian cooking being that she was married to a tradional and orthodox Italian family.
