I am a 31 year old mom to a 9 year old, Nathan. I am recently married to a wonderful silician man name Paul who loves to eat! We live in Southern California. I am a FINRA registered assistant for a brokerage firm in Orange County.
My favorite things to cook
I am the BBQ master. I love marinades, and try alot of different ones, some homemade, and some storebought. One of the beauties of living is SoCal is being able to grill outdoors year round!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I come from a traditional Italian family. My mom never cooked, so all of the things I have learned I have learned from my dad. He is more of a trial and error type of person, does not like recipes. Although that makes me nervous, it always turns out great!
My cooking triumphs
I consider anything that doesn't come out undercooked, overcooked, burnt, soggy or nasty a triumph!
My cooking tragedies
The first time I ever made cookies by myself, the recipe called for 1/2 tsp. of soda.Although I though that was a weird ingredient, I cracked open the can of coca-cola and put it in! ;)
