About this Cook
I'm in my early twenties and grew up with parents who liked to cook, but often didn't have time. I've lived in North America, Western Europe and Eastern Asia, so I like to think I have a broader palate than most!
My favorite things to cook
Mediterranean food
My favorite family cooking traditions
Comfort food
My cooking triumphs
Cooking for a large family and royal guests as an au pair at 17, and anything my boyfriend gushes over.
My cooking tragedies
Oh, I've been a regular Amelia Bedelia; trying to cook in foreign lands does that to you!

My Mom's Sausage & Rice Casserole
I call this "Octopus's Garden" and serve it as a kid's dish. Slice half of each sausage lengthwise into 8 strips, and allow these to poke out of the top while cooking. They'll curl into tentacles! (See photo #3)

Quick and Easy Cheese Bread
A good soda bread; I used 2/3 cup Gorgonzola and 1/3 cup cream cheese, cubed, instead of cheddar and it was nice; reduce the salt if doing this, though. I also used the spiced olive oil that cubes of feta are canned in instead of vegetable oil. Yum!

Quick Fudge Icing
I made this for lack of confectioners' sugar. Why boil, oldschool? Throw all ingredients into a bowl, substitute margarine for shortneing, microwave for 1 minute on high, then whip boiling mixture. It is like a glaze; pour over any bland cake, and drink the rest! :)
