About this Cook
I love to cook and garden. I find cooking very stress relieving, as long as I have the time to enjoy it and not feel pressured. I also love to bake and treat my family and friends to home-made cookies.
My favorite things to cook
Some of my favorite dishes are Sausage with Farfalle Pasta in Tomato and Cream Sauce, and grilled salmon with roasted sweet potatoes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My brother and I compete to see who makes the best spaghetti sauce and best chili. I think I'm the winner, of course.
My cooking triumphs
I once spent a summer cooking in a boarding school cafeteria. It's much different cooking for 100 than it is cooking for a small group. I made some very inventive dishes, and the kids loved most of what I cooked. It was also great to make a BIG mess and have someone else clean it up.
My cooking tragedies
When I first got married, I made a chicken dish with raisins and pineapple. It was really awful, but my newlywed husband just grinned and ate it!

Carol's Chicken Chili
This is a wonderful red chili alternative. I added two cans of green chiles instead of one, for a more Southwestern flavor.

Chocolate Cappuccino Cheesecake
I took this cheesecake to a dinner party, where it was an instant sensation.

Focaccia Bread
This is a wonderful, easy to make bread. I like to fix it with fresh pasta and a tossed salad.
