Family Recipes

4 May

I am in the unique position in my family in which everyone I’m surrounded by loves to cook. This being the case I don’t get a ton of time in the kitchen, unless we are short-handed in which case I end up the sous- chef. Although my seven-year old has taken such an interest that she usually beats me to it. My husband, father and mother all are creative, talented cooks and I am the beneficiary of some sincerely amazing food.

Examples are our family’s special broccoli pasta recipe, invented in part by a family friend who is one of the other 6 Italian’s in the Twin Cities and a brilliant artist, Joe Giannetti.

In addition to broccoli pasta my husband has come up with some amazing recipes such as Salmon and Orzo, pork ramen, Inari sushi, red beans and rice, and a teriyaki chicken, which is such a precious family recipe that I am sworn to secrecy under pain of great sadness.

What kind of family recipes do you have? Don’t worry, I’m not asking for the recipe, only what it is.
