wife and mother - worship leader at my church, Elementary School Teacher's Aide, love to garden, make music and COOK! Cooking is my passion and my therapy.
My favorite things to cook
I'm more of a cook than a baker, but I love to cook Italian (being Sicilian in heritage). My dream is to someday open a breakfast/lunch diner - open at 6am, close at 2pm. Use all my Dad & Grandmother's best recipes....someday....
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love cooking for the Holidays, baking cookies, making traditional Italian dishes. I am blessed to have a husband and 13 year old son who both love to try anything I cook! We laugh at the "misses", but we rejoice in the "successes"!
My cooking triumphs
When we have an especially tasty meal at a restaurant, the "challenge" is on for me to go home and re-create it! I love it when I can actually make it better than the restaurant!
My cooking tragedies
I made a batch of broccoli-cheese soup that was horrific, and my boys will never let me forget it! I need to redeem myself one of these days...so any recipes would be greatly appreciated!
