My favorite things to cook
Soups, stews, poultry, pasta, and cakes. Except for the cakes and desserts, I try to cook low fat and high fiber.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My father was born in Sicily so our family cooking traditions are firmly rooted in Italian cuisine. I also enjoy other ethnic cuisines such as Middle Eastern, Far Eastern and Mexican.
My cooking triumphs
My cakes are very well received. And my carbonara is always in demand for holidays.
My cooking tragedies
My biggest cooking tragedies have been homemade frostings/icings. I haven't been very successful with fish, either.
