I am married 23 years to Rob and the happy, harried, mom to 6 kids ages 22, 21, 21, 16, 11 and 9. 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
Thanksgiving dinner this year was especially good. The cornbread dressing and Indian-style cranberry chutney were new variations and big hits with the family.
My cooking tragedies
I baked two (not one, but two) pumpkin pies at Christmas and forgot the sugar.
