I love political sciences, news, documentaries and cooking shows! Both parents are Italian so I grew up with some wonderful food, all homemade. I'm finally collecting my folks' recipes & those of wonderful cooks I've found on allrecipes.com.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Italian family was close-knit & when I was growing up we lived in very close proximity to one another. Both my parents are wonderful cooks so we kids had little desire to cook as mom & dad were a dynamic duo in the kitchen! On Sundays aunts, uncles, grandparents all came together for huge feasts.
My cooking triumphs
Making my parents homemade pizza, biscotti, stuffed peppers and lasagna recipes.
My cooking tragedies
Pizzelle iron cookies - used the wrong type of butter - what a wreck!
The 2nd time I used my slow cookier I erroneously put it on low & tried to cook something that required 5 hours on high...yikes!
