My husband and I have been married for 10 years. I am the proud mom of two small boys. I work part time outside home. My husband and I spend most of our together time at home in our kitchen. It's not unusual for him to literally take the spoon out of my hand to put his "2 cents" into our meals!
My favorite things to cook
I cook mostly Italian or Chinese. I'm fanatic about Italian desserts, but not really traditional sweets. I like quick and easy recipes that have that homecooked, all day preparing feeling to them. I'm also addicted to comfort foods!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother cooked very basic homecooked meals. My grandfather is originally from Kentucky and cooks on the southern side. I get my cooking personality from the two, Italian homecooked meals and a flare on the side for hot and spicy BBQ and sweet breads.
My cooking triumphs
My first Thanksgiving dinner. I made everything from the turkey to the cranberry salad and everything in between. I had never even cooked a small whole chicken before for just me and my husband let alone an entire turkey and all the trimmings for my entire family. It was a HUGE success!
My cooking tragedies
The first birthday cake I made for my husband after we were married. It was from a box and I messed it up so bad it was unedible. He did "try" to eat a piece, but it was terrible. And it was from a box!!!! I've come a longggg way!
