About this Cook
Cooking is love and art and nourishment. It gives me a profound sense of joy, and I never want to stop experimenting.
My favorite things to cook
Casseroles! Quiche. Pasta anything. Interesting chicken marinades. I love experimenting with roasted veggies, especially balsamic. But my heart and soul is in baking bread. I'm still learning, but there is nothing like it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My dad showing me how to make a roux when I was very young, eating creamy curry over you-name-it: rice, spaghetti, eggs... Eggs on Saturday and pancakes on Sunday. Weekend breakfasts make me feel happy and peaceful. My mother is the master of all things dessert and I am still learning from her all the time (two rules set in stone: always underbake cookes and always make your own icing, no matter what).
My cooking triumphs
My spinach and artichoke dip, pesto-feta pasta salad, baked mac and cheese, warm soft yeast white bread, homemade marinara sauce, Chicken Cardini.
My cooking tragedies
Bread salad! Strata! I'm fascinated by using bread in different ways, but have had several cases of a too-mushy finished product. As someone who had to learn that recipes are there for a REASON, I have had many past cooking tragedies. But I'm better now.

Fluffy Pancakes
these came out wonderfully rich and fluffy! I ended up having to add a dash more milk before I cooked them because I was making 2 types of pancake batter and I think I let it sit a little too long (it got really thick), but they came out perfect! I added in chocolate chips but I think this is my new go to pancake recipe for any type of pancake.

Gramma's Apple Bread Pudding
I'll admit, this was my first attempt at making a bread pudding, but I have eaten a ton if them in my lifetime, so I knew what I was looking for. If I could give this 10 stars I would! It was SO GOOD and SO EASY. I made it in a mad rush last night to use up some leftover bread before a few friends came over, and the only things I changed were the following out of necessity: I used one apple and upped the raisins a bit to make up for it, I upped the vanilla to a whole teaspoon because I was reading the recipe fast, and I didn't have time to make the sauce. I stuck it in the fridge for about an hour before I baked it to give it time to soak up the mixture, and I could not BELIEVE how heavenly this turned out for such a quick and easy bread pudding requiring items that are almost always in your kitchen anyway. MAKE THIS TONIGHT!

Belgian Molasses Bread
I made this recipe as written except for using all white flour (didn't have any wheat) and I added in 3 tablespoons of brown sugar because I was craving a sweet yeast bread. It turned out GREAT with a very soft, thick texture. I made mine on the basic setting but I think next time I might try the sweet setting. I highly recommend adding the brown sugar if you want to try it a bit sweeter!
