About this Cook
As a graphic designer by day and painter as I make the time for it, preparing foods in an artful fashion is a treat for my husband, friends and family.
My favorite things to cook
anything new.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Pies for Thanksgiving; krumkakke, a Norwegian cookie during the holidays; blackeyed peas and greens for New Years; and brunch torte for the 4th of July.
My cooking triumphs
Whatever delights the diners. For example, the pecan pie and pumpkin pie made with oil pie crust.
My cooking tragedies
Had to be the time I served cold avacado soup. That was over 20 years ago ... I prepared the soup and served it in portions much too generous for the type of soup. Must not have been too tasty either as my friends still remember that failed attempt at cold soup.

Kale and Feta Salad
Makes raw kale enjoyable. Yup, the kale massaging made the greens a bit more tender and flavorful. I added a quarter cup of thinly sliced purple cabbage and the same of grated carrots. The rest I kept the same.

Hearty Whole Grain Muffins
Really tasty ... Made gluten free with bob’s red mill cup for cup all purpose flour. I tried them in paper cups and just in the tins and I found that the muffins baked without the paper liners rose more. Nice.

Apple Crisp II
This was an awesome recipe ... Made gluten free with bob's red mill flour ... Italian plums instead of the apples, no water and half the granulated sugar. Yum!
