I'm all about the new. Been cooking 30+ years but always looking to combine traditional tried and true with new ingredients and methods.....
My favorite things to cook
Things with intense flavors such as Italian spaghetti sauce, green chili,spicy stir fry, and anything chocolate.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Italian cookies such as pizzelles, fried cookies, biscotti, lasagne, soup, etc. p.s. I am not THAT overweight!
My cooking triumphs
Cooking the company Christmas party for 60+ people and loving it.
My cooking tragedies
Exploding hard boiled eggs. Nothing is blacker or worse to smell than forgetting you had eggs boiling and leaving the house for 3 hours........not to mention dangerous!!!
