I have a small, but wonderful, garden.  I plant a few things each season, and revel in the wonders of fresh picked veggies.  Last year was a good year for eggplant in Phoenix, and I left a plant sitting there over the winter.  Last week when I went to clean everything up, compost… MORE

About this Cook
I am a Reading Specialist who has been married and raised a family over the past 43 years, and discovered cooking through my love of eating! I wanted to try everything! It didn't always turn out, but over the years, I've developed a pretty deft touch at improvisational cooking.
My favorite things to cook
I love to saute simple foods, I love steamed greens, soups, stews, roasts, Asian food and my mother's old world favorites.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family is Rumanian and Hungarian and Jewish, and we had wonderful cooks in the family when I was growing up. My mother was a great baker, she said her mother was greater. My grandfather even cooked! In fact his meat gravy for spaghetti was the family favorite food. One of my treasures is the pot he used to make it.
My cooking triumphs
A phenomenal Buche de Noel complete with spun sugar for a progressive dinner many years ago in Seattle. A barbecued duck with a chili orange baste that shared the starring role along with turkey one Thanksgiving.
My cooking tragedies
Let me see - everything I made for the first four years of my marriage! One day I'll blog about the worst dinner party ever. The one that made me get serious about cooking.
