Can you tell us what you're cooking this year?: TOP SECRET!
After traveling on the road for a long time, what is the first thing you crave when you get back home?: Pasta. I have a pasta maker at home & it's very easy to make fresh pasta. I end up making tons because I'm so used to restaurant portions!
