About this Cook
I actually don't do most of the cooking, my partner does. I am the baker of the house, and worked in a bakery as a teenager. We love food from different parts of the world, especially Indian, Mediterranean, Chinese, and Japanese.
My favorite things to cook
I really enjoy baking and making pastries, along with fresh veggie and fruit salads and pasta.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I was born and raised in Nashville, so I love Southern comfort food. Macaroni and cheese, fried corn and tomatoes, green beans, home made biscuits, and country ham make me very happy!

Donna's Cheesy Quiche
Great recipe! I thought the heavy cream would make this too rich, so I just used half and half. I also changed the mozzarella to parmesan, as we didn't have any. I love cheddar and parmesan together! I agree that the Easy Pie Crust was just the right companion for it.

Azuki Ice Cream (Japanese Red Beans Ice Cream)
We had some purple hull cowpeas instead of azuki and this recipe stil turned out excellently! We didn't use all of the liquid after boiling the beans and it turned out just right. Great flavor!

Mom's Cheesecake
I honestly can't see what the fuss is about this recipe. It was far too eggy for my taste. Perhaps that's why it's so smooth and not as dense as a cheesecake with more cream cheese than egg in it. I used to work in a bakery and was looking for a recipe similar to the ones we used. This is not it, and if I try it again I will reduce the amount of eggs, because it was just too much egg taste for my liking.
