About this Cook
I love travel, theatre and movies, especially classic movies like the Marx Brothers and Fred Astaire-Ginger Rogers movies. I am a total political junkie having worked in city government for 12 years before switching to government relations for a nonprofit.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake and am known for my cakes and cookies, especially my killer brownies. I also use a lot of boneless skinless chicken breasts in a variety of ways, especially an Israeli spicy grilled chicken that I serve with Israeli couscous and Israeli chopped salad.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom is an excellent home cook who taught me how to make soups and brisket (mine still isn't as good as hers). She was always baking and that is where I learned how to bake.
My cooking triumphs
I catered my son's wedding except for the barbecued pig and the wedding cake. Two weeks prior, I catered a pre-wedding luncheon for the happy couple at my synagogue.
My cooking tragedies
When in high school, my friend and I once made bread that was so bad that not even the birds would eat it. And of course there was the time I forgot to take things out of the oven before preheating. Marshmallows in the bag and a hot oven don't mix!

Bailik (buy-lick)
I add lemon juice to the egg mixture. Also, rather than frying, I spray the cutlets with a canola oil spray and bake at 425 until done (I put on a rack so the underside gets crispy, too). It's not quite the same as frying, but it's a healthier alternative.
