    I love cooking. Mostly Italian,

    and polish. But the dishes I bring out are good. Like my shell dish. It's clams, mussels, shrimp in a red wine sauce. That sits in a nice bed of pasta, normally with fresh made bread on the side to mop up the sauce. It's easy and made under an hour, unless you get the meat de...

    I'll Do All the Cooking

    I've been cooking virtually my whole life. I come from a family where most of the men know how to cook. I like it so much that I considered going to chef's school. What always stops me is I worry that if it becomes my job then I won't want to do it in my leisure life. I love...

    I absolutely adore cooking!

    I get so into it, and when I'm in my cooking zone, I feel like a mini chef. If I have a bad day cooking is my great little outlet; it really gets my mind off any negative types of things. Even though the food I cook generally turns out pretty awful, I still love doing it!
