About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Soups, Bread, salads, . . . continually learning new techniques and find new favorites.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Grandma was such a fantastic cook that I just loved all the traditional favorites that she made. Her style is what I love, very simple cooking with lots of love.
My cooking triumphs
A Christmas Dinner for friends / family and an additional to-go Christmas Dinner for a needy family. It was lots of cooking, but felt so good to be able to share our Christmas with others.
My cooking tragedies
A few experiences of working around the house and not hearing the buzzer to check on something and alas dinner was charbroiled to a crisp, so an alternate dinner would need to be prepared.

Butternut Squash Soup
This soup is a rarity on this site -- the recipe is nearly perfect as-is. The only changes truly are personal preference tweaks, but no changes are needed. I created a custom version (see custom tab) that incorporates the things I changed and is a generalized version for all winter squash. Basically I replaced margarine for butter, replaced cream cheese for Neufchatel + decreasing quantity by 1/2 and I added some cinnamon. Very minor!

Sugar Snap Peas
This recipe was a perfect starter on preparing sugar snap peas. It would be fantastic with a variety of flavor combinations, but the cooking method itself was simple and absolutely perfect. I didn't have any shallots, so used green onion and dried thyme and it was delicious.
