About this Cook
I've been married 24 years and have four children. Both my husband and I have Italian roots and grew up with grandmothers who could bring happiness to their families just by putting on their aprons.
My favorite things to cook
Italian Fried Pasta, Sausage and Peppers, Red Sauce w/ Ribs.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving Dinner, hands down!
My cooking triumphs
I won my church's annual fall chili cook-off in 2007 (overall), 2008 (in spicy category), and 2010 (overall). In 2010, over 5,000 people were at the event. When my name was called, my knees started to tremble and I could hardly walk up the stairs to the platform. I was ecstatic over winning, but incredibly nervous about getting up in front of so many people!
My cooking tragedies
As a newly married cook, I inadvertently put salt instead of sugar in a gallon of lemonade. I still remember my husband's face when he took his first gulp. PRICELESS.

Sweet Dinner Rolls
I have never been one who can successfully make bread of any kind. The high ratings on this recipe motivated me to try it and, boy, am I glad I did! These rolls are PERFECT.
