About this Cook
I am an accountant by trade but I love to cook for my family and friends. I have an eight year old daughter that loves to help me in the kitchen when she can. I would really love to take a cooking class to learn more techniques and more about the art of cooking. I don't eat red meat, so I like to see what is out there for turkey and other meats. I would love to learn more about vegetarian cooking.

Tzatziki Sauce
The taste would have been ok. Blending is a terrible idea, I will shred the cucumbers and mix them in by hand next time.

Penne Pasta with Cannellini Beans and Escarole
My family really likes this recipe and it is so quick and easy that it has become part of the regular rotation. Instead of escarole I use fresh spinach leaves, because I usually have them on hand. I also add fresh garlic, basil and Italian seasoning. I garnish with some crumbled feta. Great recipe!

Stuffed Peppers My Way
Love, love, love this recipe! I did make a few slight alterations. I cooked up fresh garlic with red onions, instead of green. I use fresh basil, when I have it. I ended up using a brown, medium grain rice since I did not have Arborio. To add extra moisture to the rice, I used a little vegetable broth. I also used a can of diced tomatoes, drained, in replace of the fresh tomato, which I also did not have at the time. I have made this at home many times, it is one of my 8 year old daughter's favorites!
