About this Cook
I am a retired flight attendant living north of Boston with my husband, an airline pilot, happily busying myself with volunteer work. With our “finicky child” off to college, I am cooking for two. I collect cookbooks and have no idea how many I have. With a glass of wine and a cookbook in my hands I am totally transported to my “happy place”. I admire both the creators of the recipes and the food stylists who make their creations look so appetizing in the photographs. Of course, the helpful reviews and fabulous photos from others keep me coming back to Allrecipes. I don’t consider myself a good cook, just a good "chooser of recipes". One of my favorite sources for new recipes and cooking tips are my many friends who are passionate and talented cooks; I am constantly inspired and delighted by their culinary expertise.
My favorite things to cook
I love the occasional indulgence, but for the most part I like tasty but healthy meals. I love trying new recipes so a recipe has to knock my socks off for me to make it more than once.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Everyone gets to choose his or her own birthday meal, from beginning to end. We have had some unusual meals and even more unusual birthday cakes, pies, tortes, etc.
My cooking triumphs
I love sharing recipes. I always feel great when guests leave my home clutching favored recipes in their hands.
My cooking tragedies
There was a “nut loaf” incident once, but I would hardly call it a tragedy.

Baked Denver Omelet
I made this in a 10-inch round baking dish as directed and found it to be overcooked and somewhat dry. I did take it out at 20 minutes but feel that 400 degrees might be too high of a temperature. If I made this again I would bake it at 350 for about 20 minutes and perhaps use an 8-inch round baking dish. It was tasty, though, and was good reheated the next day.

Green Power Mojito Smoothie
This is one delicious, healthy smoothie! I used frozen pineapple and used the whole lemon and lime, peeled and segmented. Just for the health of it, I used coconut water. It did taste mojito-ish! Fabulous!

Spicy Bok Choy in Garlic Sauce
We have a winner! I had never cooked bok choy before but had to deal with the two heads that came in my friend's share of a CSA while she was on vacation. We loved it! I used slightly less ginger and added shitake mushrooms. I will definitely make this quick veggie dish again!
