I love Recipezaar! The recipes and people have helped me create dishes I would never have done by myself. I finally have gotten the knack of bread (which I love) because of this site. I am on the go workaholic who loves cooking and serving good fresh food to my family. Brought up with Italian food. Inspired by my grandmother who I should have paid more attention to while she was cooking and baking. Mother is a very good cook and a little sneaky. Liver, rabbit, duck, tripe, lamb and meat family would get on hunting trips was served often. Can't really do that with my family as they don't like these different dishes as I do and have protested. Family from Chieti & Naples Italy. My pet peeve is overcooking pasta. I like it al dente everytime and never add sugar to my tomato sauce. My motto is I would rather have a little of a good , natural thing than a lot of no-fat low-fat stuff.
