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.

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.

Sesame Noodles
Excellent. Made it to go with Kung Pao Chicken. Used Barilla Linguini Fini. Perfect.

Chicken Pot Pie IX
I've made this recipe over and over again. Really easy and full of flavor. I used broccoli instead of peas. I also used skim milk and it comes out terrific! Great meal for a cold winter's night.
