Well I do not cook very much or should I say my wife is a excellent cook so why bother BUT i am a pretty mean cook when I do. Growing up in NJ in a Italian family you sit and watch what your Mom and your Aunts do in the kitchen. This is how I learned and also my very first REAL girlfriend her mom taught me quite a bit also. My favorite dish to make is Eggplant Parmesan it is a really a all day process and i am doing it right now for tomorrow along with a special caesar salad dressing. So what's on your plates?
