About this Cook
I'm a graphic designer and I cook almost very night. I like to make something different for most meals. I've had a 7 course gourmet Christmas Dinner Party for 8 for over 30 years now. I've got 3 purebred cats and I love to travel.
My favorite things to cook
Appetizers are my favorite. Everything form chicken liver pate to scallops with an avacado cream. I also love to make pasta dishes and Chinese food.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I make a huge tin of chex mix every Thanksgiving that lasts through Christmas time. My chicken salad is everyone's favorite. I actually have it with mimosas on Christmas morning!
My cooking triumphs
A decadent white chocolate raspberry cheescake is my best dessert.
My cooking tragedies
I made an almond chocolate souffle tart that was so bad I actually threw it out. Of course I gave my company each a serving before I grabbed their plates and tossed it. What a disaster! We all agreed, it was terrible.

Easy Arugula Salad
This is such an easy and delicious recipe. Made it for a church meeting/dinner. Three of us don't like cheese, so I separated a small bowl out and omitted the cheese. Sooooooo good. I toasted the pine nuts and made it with a bag of arugula, a bag of baby spinach and 2 romaine hearts. This is my new favorite salad!!

Fresh Semolina and Egg Pasta
I got an Atlas 150 pasta machine for Christmas. I used this recipe for my first homemade pasta. I started it in my Kitchenaid Stand Mixer with the paddle, then the dough hook. The bowl kept bounced off the holder, so I took the dough out and kneaded it by hand for 10 minutes. It came out perfect. I made 75 raviolis with a good amount of dough left over. Excellent recipe.
