About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Simple things that taste complex and fabulous; things that take a bit more time and effort but are worth it for the taste; anything that satisfies my sweet tooth.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving with all the trimmings.
My cooking triumphs
I conquered my fear of yeast breads thanks to Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day by Hertzberg/Francios. Now I make it often without even worrying about that dreaded yeast. Crepes - something else I was afraid to try because they seem so delicate. Try the Dessert Crepes recipe here, it's great and so easy!
My cooking tragedies
Angel food cake at high altitude... splat!... enough said.

Chunky Marinara Sauce
Used only half the onion and added basil. I liked it well enough for a quick tomato sauce in a pinch. My 10 yr old son loves spaghetti sauce, but says he didn't like this as much as Ragu. =(

Spiced Sweet Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
Disclaimer: Not a big fan of hummus. Did this according to recipe except used half the cayenne recommended and it's plenty hot. Otherwise it tastes pretty bland. I used the Hummus III recipe last time and added cumin, roasted pepper, and red pepper flakes and I think I like that one better.

Hummus III
First, I've never been a fan of hummus, but the lemon especially is so over powering in this recipe. Maybe I just had an especially sour lemon, because that's all I tasted. Also, a little too much tahini for my taste. I started with the original recipe and then kept adding things until it was edible. Added 1/4 tsp cumin, another clove garlic, and some roasted red peppers. Next time I'll try the Spiced Sweet Roasted Red Pepper Hummus on here.
