About this Cook
I'm a big food fan. Much of my free time is spent in the kitchen. I get a lot of personal satisfaction from cooking. I also spend a lot of time hanging out with my husband and my daughter. Life is good...
My favorite things to cook
My favorite thing to cook is the main course (lasagna, enchiladas, casseroles, and so forth). I love trying new recipes. Baking cookies comes in as a close second. But, then again, there's soup -- when the weather is cold, I'm a homemade soup FANATIC! This is a hard question... I think I just love to cook!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Good food is good living.
My cooking triumphs
I have a busy life. Every time my family sits down to a meal made with my hands (no matter how simple or sophisticated), it's a triumph!
My cooking tragedies
During my marriage, there's been about 3 times my husband tried (but could not stomach) a new recipe and got up from the kitchen table to make himself a sandwich. Not bad for 32 years! You really can't blame a hungry guy :-)

Kielbasa with Brussels Sprouts in Mustard Cream Sauce
I will make this weird little dish again and again. We loved it! I highly recommend roasting the Brussels sprouts alongside the shallots and garlic (instead of steaming them). It saves dishes, and the roasted sprouts are much more flavorful. I used beef kielbasa and served it with mashed potatoes, corn-on-the cob, and salad... it was a huge hit!

Summery Corn Salad
Man, this was good. There was no way I was gonna insult beautiful, fresh ears of California corn in season (by grilling or cooking it). I cut fresh corn right off the ear, and used smoked paprika (in lieu of chili powder). Fresh-squeezed lime is a must. What a treat. Served it with BBQ burgers and Skewered Grilled Potatoes (another fav). The red wine vinegar dressing is fabulous. Such good food.

Asian Beef Skewers
Yeah, baby... that's what I'm talkin 'bout. So good! The marinade is delicious. I used plum sauce (the store was out of hoisin sauce, what the heck?), and rib eye steak (we only eat red meat every now and then - I didn't want to blow it with a cheap cut). I skewed the meat with some red onion and mushrooms, and "BAM", huge smiles all around.
