And no, I didn't use the wrong word.   During my childhood, my father used to make turkey soup on Boxing Day. Ok, sometimes it might have been the day after Boxing Day, or maybe even the day after the day after Boxing Day, but I always think of it as Boxing Day turkey soup.… MORE

About this Cook
To me, food is love, so when I cook for family and friends I'm showing them how much I care for them. I also love cooking for myself. When people say that they can't see that it is worth the effort to prepare elaborate meals just for one person , I answer that if I am not worth my best efforts, than who else would be? You can reach me at
My favorite things to cook
I like adding new ingredients to old favorite recipes, or trying different ways of cooking them. I enjoy the challenge of trying to improve something that was already pretty good to start with.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My father really excelled at making something special from simple and inexpensive food items. I learned most of the cooking basics from him. He particularly loved preparing food for holiday gatherings, and I have continued in his footsteps.
My cooking triumphs
My first gang up recipe. It wasn't the most imaginative meal, but I managed to create something that tasted good!
My cooking tragedies
The infamous broccoli souffle comes to mind. I spent a whole lot of time, money and energy making that thing and it was absolutely vile. It took quite a while before my family would eat broccoli again.

French Bread Rolls to Die For
These are really very easy to make, and they look great, but they don't have a lot of taste. Nothing wrong with the recipe, I just was expecting more of a pronounced taste. Thanks for the recipe!

Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies
These were very good cookies. They held up well to being iced, and the flavor was very nice, if perhaps a little too subtle for my taste. Thanks for the recipe!

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos
I don't know that I would call them addictive, but they were really surprisingly good. Next time I make these, I will make the beans spicier, as the sweetness of the sweet potatoes kind of took over. The only thing I did differently was to leave the kidney beans whole, as I did not think the overall texture would be pleasiant with everything mashed. All in all, this is a recipe I will make again, so thank you very much for the recipe!
