About this Cook
For the most part, I like eating healthy. Don't get me wrong, everybody likes a bowl of pasta from time to time, but I have to say, eating healthy just makes me feel good. My mother was way ahead of her time when it came to health food. Growing up, she never kept any junk food in the house. Looking back I'm really glad because she taught me how to eat food that wasn't processed or artificial and how to really enjoy it. My daughter and my husband are so fun to cook for, like me, they eat ALL foods, they are not afraid to try something new and different and I really love that. The three of us are like the three musketeers. We're almost always together, hanging out, laughing and of course eating. And I love this girl named Jessie McVey too by the way.
My favorite things to cook
Everything and anything.
My favorite family cooking traditions
When I was growing up my grandmother always made a traditional Slovak christmas eve dinner by candlelight. Now that my grandmother and mother have passed we haven't kept up with the tradition the way we should have, maybe this year I'll start it up again.

Thick-Style Lebanese Garlic Sauce
This sauce is missing one VERY IMPORTANT ingredient to make it into the perfect textured garlic sauce...a raw egg white. I know it may sound a little crazy but you will forget all about that little detail once you are eating it. Other than that, good recipe, thanks alot.

Brazilian White Rice
I am not sure how this white rice can taste like so much more than white rice, but then also taste exactly like white rice. I don't even usually like white rice! I love this white rice:)

Lamb Chops with Balsamic Reduction
This was amazing! I paired it with the elegant orzo with wilted spinach and pine nuts recipe from this site, both excellent, and they complimented each other beautifully. If you want to impress someone with a gourmet meal, make them this :)
