About this Cook
Librarian (well, that should be obvious). American living in Tel-Aviv, Israel.
My favorite things to cook
Not a baker, that's too scientific and exact for me!!! I love making stick to the ribs type stews, sauces and soups. I also like to use different kinds of pulses and grains, both as main and side dishes.

John's Quiche Lorraine
Totally loved it. I used a 10" quiche pan, and used a recipe for a two crust (oil, pat in) for the single crust, 1/2 baking it before filling it. It was absolutely perfect!

Curried Coconut Chicken
Excellent!! Two changes, one small, one not so. I used canned tomatoes only, because I did not have tomato sauce in the house, and I added lots and lots of cilantro - which is an either love it or hate it item and I am in the first group.

Curried Stew with Lamb
Made this for my bro's 60 birthday lunch today. I basically stuck to the recipe (which was poorly worded) but here's where I did things a little differently: 1) I cooked the spices with the onions for the last minute or so - learned that from an Indian roomie. 2) Started with 1 Tablesp curry and added more as I tasted. I think I got up to 2 Tablesp by the end of cooking. 3) I added the currents in the last 1/2 hour, and the almonts at the very end. 4) I had 2 cups of stock prepared, but didn't add any at all 'til the very end of cooking, and even then, barely a cup. Maybe I had very juicy lamb. Didn't need anymore. Will definitely make this one again as soon as I have a festivity!
