I dont know about you but, when my family gets together it can get a bit hectic! Sometimes Im happy to be the one cooking because it means I can sneak into the kitchen whenever I need a breather... The only time we are all quiet at once it when our mouths are full of good food! MORE

Since I gave up meat, I have been trying MANY different things in order to compensate for lost nutrients. I was aware that many grains and such could provide me with what I needed but no matter how much I lead on that I knew, I really had no clue what I was talking about (shhhh)! I wo MORE

I haven’t eaten anything that walks on land for almost 6 months. Honestly, I’m not sure how long it has been because I didn’t know how serious I was when I made the big change. If I knew, I probably would have marked it on a calendar…and I probably would have flew to Montreal to have one MORE

About Me
MAN! I love to eat...most of all I love trying new things! I have always said I will try any food TWICE...but I have recently gone VEGETARIAN so I guess that wont apply anymore....hhhmmmm...
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking Italian! Probably because I am Italian ;)
My favorite family cooking traditions
My fav would be...Christmas Eve. Dad goes and buys every fish he can find like squid, smelts, mussles clams and oysters and we chow down in a BIG way! He makes this FANtastic home made pasta with a tomato, basil, clam sauce...TO DIE FOR!
My cooking tragedies
My first pie for a family gathering...I got the recipe out of a magazine..."peaches and cream". It all went great! I peeled the freshest, juiciest peaches I could find...I followed the recipe to a tee because I wasnt too familiar with baking at all. I even laticed the looked exactly like the pic in the magazine...until I put my big foot through it! I put it on the floor of the car, then got out to put the dogs in the back...when I jumped back in to bring it to my parents house I stepped right onto it! Dont worry I STILL ate it :)
