About this Cook
We've moved around the country quite a bit with my husband's job so I've lived in 6 states from Pennsylvania to California. I have 4 kids, 2 cats, 1 dog & 1 husband since right out of high school.
My favorite things to cook
I love to experiment with recipes and cuisines!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I think of my grandma most frequently when I'm cooking. She made even the most boring things look special just by arrangement and easy garnishes.
My cooking triumphs
I made chicken & mushroom crepes from scratch as a newlywed when I was 18.
My cooking tragedies
I used to say I knew when the garlic bread was done in the broiler when the smoke alarm went off! I've gotten better with that.

Pepperoncini Beef
I topped the beef with one sliced green pepper and one sliced onion before pouring the pepperoncini over. It was tangy & just a little spicy - very good!

Spinach and Feta Pita Bake
Great for a weekend vegetarian lunch. I used a fresh whole wheat pizza crust instead of the pitas. We thinly sliced a quarter of a small red onion and used up a few tablespoons of sliced black olives and placed on half the pizza & that side was really good too!

Tofu Turkey II
The flavor was very good. Next time I would drain the tofu for a while & try to squeeze out some of the liquid. It was very light, fluffy & a little too wet, almost like a ricotta cheese filling for lasagna. I found it difficult to prepare as a loaf and would probably just make a casserole with the stuffing on the bottom & tofu mixture on top. Delicious flavor though, I will make again for sure.
