About this Cook
Newlywed and mother to a 4 year old daughter (Ashley), with another daughter due in June 2010.
My favorite things to cook
I love to use ingredients that remind me of my home state of California, such as fresh avocados, sprouts, and good wine, as well as experiment with food and techniques from the South (I live in Tennessee now).
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother's cooking was rooted in Pennsylvania/German traditions. I tend to experiment a lot more with spices and international flare to my dishes.
My cooking triumphs
I'm getting to be much more adept at desserts, which used to be the bane of my cooking existence!
My cooking tragedies
I wasn't paying attention and added 1/4c of salt to a batch of was the WORST bite of food I've ever tasted!

Sugo Rosso (Red Sauce)
Simple, fast, and delicious. Skipped the cold water bath. Easily removed the skins and used a potato masher to instantly get the authentic chunky texture I wanted without dicing/blending. 5 medium tomatoes served two adult sized portions.

Laura's Unbelievable Chicken and Pasta
This was great, with the addition of half a chopped yellow onion, a lot of Italian Seasoning and Garlic Salt. Would have been terribly bland with out it. Good base recipe to work with.

Bland and boring. The rice turned to mush.
