About this Cook
I am a grad student with 4 grown kids, a husband of 27 years and 4 small dogs. I don't cook as much as I did when the kids were younger, but when I do i love to try new foods.
My favorite things to cook
Always cookies, candies...desserts in general; but I love experimenting with ethnic foods too. I think the adventure of going to the pantry and grabbing random ingrediants can be so rewarding and I have very seldom been disappointed
My favorite family cooking traditions
The after Thanksgiving cooking with my kids. We spend weekends making wonderful treats to give to friends, co-workers and save a bunch for Christmas Eve and Day; we have traditional favorites and try new recipes every year.
My cooking triumphs
Making a traditional Black Forest cake; fruit trifle w/ homemade whipped cream; discovering Mexican (and Haitian) vanilla; succesfully making an Indian dinner w/ Chicken Masala
My cooking tragedies
The worst...using ketchup as an ingrediant, esp. in a steak marinade...ugh!
