About this Cook
I love big, old-timey recipes that use fresh ingredients. I love experimenting with spices and my absolute favorite treat in the whole world is Moishe's kosher pickles in brine.
My favorite things to cook
I love using the slow cooker! My favorite food has to be soup. Any soup, all soups.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I learned to cook from my mother and grand-mother, who have very distinct styles. Mine is a mix of healthy and traditional, with staples from all over the world.
My cooking triumphs
My spaghetti sauce is pretty much the way my grandkids will know it 50 years from now. It's a mix of different recipies but it's thouroughly mine and it come out the same every time, which amazes me. I can also cook a whole chiken or turkey with any cookware, including beer cans. More recently, I have been trying my hand at pies, with great success!
My cooking tragedies
Curry à la bitter, gravy à la flour, stew à la mode (the mode for a while being burnt), pasta à la mode, chiken à la salmonella and cooking a huge pot of cabbage and vegetable soup only to realize that I hate the smell of cooked cabbage. I have also never made a respectable cookie, but I'm working on it!

Chard Lentil Soup Lebanese Style
Absolutely obsession-inducing! Don't be fooled by the simple ingredients... until you add the lemon, garlic and olive oil the soup smells like compost but then, oh wonder, it becomes the most amazing thing ever! I ate the entire recipe in two days, no joke. I crave it now. Off to buy more chard.

Exotic Brinjal (Spicy Eggplant)
The recipe is great, very authentic and easy enough to prepare... bf was not a fan so I was left with considerable leftovers...which made a great soup! I added about 1/2 cup of red cargo rice and a quart or so of chicken broth and it made a great lunch soup! Thanks for the interesting recipe!

Kale, Quinoa, and Avocado Salad with Lemon Dijon Vinaigrette
I forgot to add the avocado (!) but it was still excellent! It reminded me of tabooli a bit, since I also added a 1/2 cup of fresh parsley. Thanks for a great fresh salad!
