It varies from time to time and location and recipient, but lasagna, negmaki, beef ribs with grilled ratatouille.

I haven't cooked for many people outside my family, but if you ask my husband, he would say in this order...
1) Lasagna
2) Chicken Velvet Soup
3) Chopped Steak
Those are his top 3 favorites at this moment.

Finally things have started clicking for me, my knees, my elbows, my back, etc...

Out of many favourites, if I were to pinpoint it would be my various risotto (from radicchio, porcini mushroom, pepper and tomatoes, asparagus and gorgonzola, to trentinian apple for example). I have tasted other people's risotto as a guest but I dare say I make them better than any one else among our Italian acquaintances Not a bad accomplishment considering I had no idea whatsoever how to prepare a risotto properly until I came to Rome 6+ years ago.

Hey bigdaddy3k would you share your Chocolate chip chipotle cookie recipe? Sounds awesome!

I'm known for my mousaka, meatballs, black bean & spicy sausage soup, fresh tuna or wahoo salad & French toast.
