I have 4 Michelin..TIRES on my car.
Brought up in NY City, in a Middle Eastern, German and Italian background - with a Grandmother who insisted I stand by her to learn "how to cook everything" - so I'd never STARVE to death. She was right, God bless her.
My favorite things to cook
It HAS to be easy with simple clean up. I AM the sous chef, the chef and the pot washer... so I like to make it all simple. That also gives me time to spend with my guests AND I'm not too tired to enjoy my food
My favorite family cooking traditions
A family that EATS together, stays together. In our busy lives, it is the ONE time we can be together, chat, relax and ENJOY LIFE TOGETHER.
Kids won't LIKE all that's on their plate... that;s WHY we have dogs as pets - they have to eat "something" too. Relax & enjoy the family moment
"Food traditions"? - all dishes that are "so good, no one talks for awhile - they're too busy enjoying the food" Grandma.
My cooking triumphs
Trying SO many different recipes and dishes of many nationalities and
... NO one has died yet!
My cooking tragedies
HAH! My loving Daughter (whose name I purposely MIS spelled in my Will!) will remind one and ALL of the steaks and hamburgers I burned to CHARCOAL/HOCKEY PUCKS on the BBQ while I was enjoying the.. hmnnn cocktail "2 hours" with guests. Thank God nearby restaurants in NY had Home Delivery. I love her anyway
