About this Cook
I've been married for 25 years, have two sons who are 24 and 18, and work part time as a nanny. I love to hike, bike, read non fiction, and x-country ski. I consider myself a foodie, but not a food snob.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I don't have any cooking traditions from growing up. Now though, my sisters and I get together frequently and make big meals for everyone. Not necessarily complicated things, just lots of variety.
My cooking triumphs
When I was 15 I made a loaf of Challah bread that everyone raved over. Recently, I made a flan for my Spanish class that turned out fantastic.
My cooking tragedies
When I was newly married, I tried to make a vegetable/bean soup from scratch using the ingredient list off the soup can, instead of using a recipe. I don't know what I did, but it was awful!

French Toast I
Very good, basic recipe. The second time I made these I was going to double it, but only had 2 eggs so I increased the milk to 1c. to try and stretch the mixture a bit more, and it was still great. Used a sourdough bread and served with real maple syrup, yum!

Artichoke Stuffed Mushrooms
I love stuffed mushrooms but didn't really care for these. I cut the cream cheese amount in 1/2 and was glad I did because it was plenty. Had to add more/other seasoning than called for to give the stuffing mixture enough flavor. Also, I love onion, but it seemed to over-power the artichoke flavor and that was a disappointment.

Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad
We love this salad! I used baby spinach, so no need to tear into pieces, and a baby lettuce mixture. Also to simplify used already toasted almonds. Had to sub rice vinegar for white wine/vin, used walnut oil, and added sliced red onion(left out the minced), and blue cheese crumbles. Oh, and reduced the sugar by half so as not too sweet for us! So good, I could eat this all day long!!
