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.

Kickin' Collard Greens
For so many of my cooking years I avoided making collard greens. Don’t get me wrong, with collards it was love at first bite. I just thought that not being a southerner mine would never be as good as those I had while traveling. Made as written, these are as good as any I have ever had.

Insanely Easy Vegetarian Chili
A local wellness center supplied this recipe to a group of people committed to a ten day regimen of enjoying only healthy, unprocessed foods. This chili was indeed insanely easy, colorful, and very good. I used Trader Joe’s super sweet organic frozen corn in place of canned and added a chipotle pepper for a smokier flavor. Mushrooms add a meaty texture and diced avocados are an attractive and tasty topping.

Double Tomato Bruschetta
The sun-dried tomatoes added a depth of flavor that can't be beat. I used focaccia as a base instead of baguette slices and it was fabulous!
