I am married 21 years to Rob and the happy, harried, mom to 6 kids ages 20, 19, 19, 14, 8 and 7. I love holidays and throwing parties.
My favorite things to cook
Pasta, Roast Chicken, Pies, Cakes, homemade soups.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The Christmas Eve Feast of the Seven Fishes.
All the traditional foods of our Italian/Irish/Floridian Easter from Pizza Rustica to Coconut cake.
My cooking triumphs
I made a ragu out of chicken and country ribs for the first time last summer on my tiny stove at Lake George. It was good enough to make a grown man cry. It was even better 2 days later on penne baked with bechamel sauce.
My cooking tragedies
I have had several BBQ sparerib debacles. The first one was when we were recently married and had my husband's boss, Fr. Greg, over for dinner! It was like a preview of hell right on our backyard grill!
