About this Cook
I started a chef's apprenticeship with Ralph DeVore in Frederick Maryland back in 1988. I worked with him for about 6 years on and off. From there I worked in numerous restaurants as a sauntee/line cook. I eventually went on to become a tattoo artist. Now, as a single mom, I'm heading back to school full time to find a new career path but cooking has always been my passion and I plan to write a cook book someday.
My favorite things to cook
I love making Italian dishes with yummy salads and bread. Sauces, veggie gravies and anything grilled with cheese! I love making soups and seeing how tasty I can make something without meat. I've been a vegetarian for many years but miss cooking a juicy bird for hungry meat eaters!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Thanksgiving my mother always makes cranberry relish and Kooken.
My cooking triumphs
I'm pretty fast with knives....The fastest chopper in the East.
My cooking tragedies
I once dumped a pot of hot rice on my hand and arm. The blisters were hideous.

Norwegian Waffles
This was runny and tasted like baking soda. I've gone over the recipe and my steps (followed it) three times to see if I did something wrong. Nope.

Easy Pancakes
This is a nice recipe if you're up for modifying it radically. I used 1/2 C WW flour, 2 t baking powder, 3T sugar, 1T pysllium husk plus walnuts and bananas. Pretty good but a whole new recipe.
