About this Cook
I'm married to the best looking, kindest, smartest, most God-fearing man in the world. But then again, I am highly biased.
My favorite things to cook
Dinner: Things that are low in saturated fat, and high in fiber and protein. Also, anything that doesn't have a face. Dessert: ANYTHING. I have a serious sweet tooth. I excercise a lot though, that's how I keep it in check.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom's pound cake--3 sticks of butter. My grandmother's spaghetti sauce My dad's homemade cranberry sauce-- the rest of the family hates it. My dad forces it on people at Christmas and Thanksgiving.
My cooking triumphs
A Black Forest Cake --that's how I got my husband. It took my mom and me about 6 hours, but it was worth it!
My cooking tragedies
Eggplant rolatini---never again....

Tofu Parmigiana
Froze the tofu. Dipped in beaten egg first, then coated with crushed crackers instead of bread crumbs. Absolutely fanstastic! This is a major winner!

Vegetarian Four Cheese Lasagna
It was pretty good. The 3 star rating was the time involved, even with all the short-cuts. The other part of the rating was the cost of the ingredients. I will say that I am probably biased bc I've had probably 15 different lasagnas, so my palate is kinda snobby.

Barbeque Seitan and Black Bean Burritos
I had never cooked with seitan before. Now I think I'll do it more often! One suggestion though, Use smaller tortillas. There was a little too much tortilla on the 10 in ones for my taste. I substituted 6 jalepenos for the habaneros, it was great!
