About this Cook
I'm always exploring. It's how I learn. I love to try new things, new recipes, new combinations that people don't ordinarily think of. I'm also a bit of a purist. Why would I use a pre-made, bottled ingredient when I can use fresh ingredients?
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking anything. Granted, I have my staple foods, but there has never been a recipe that I've not wanted to try other than deep-fried boot leather.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Molasses cake. It's a guarded recipe, passed down through generations, and MAN is it good! I make it for wherever I end up on Thanksgiving and Christmas, and have never had anyone not ask me to bring it the next year or give me the recipe.
My cooking triumphs
I used to bake cakes as a side business. It got to the point that people would come to a birthday party just because my cakes were there. It was fun watching people enjoy my recipe so much, regardless of their food aversions.
My cooking tragedies
It wasn't a COOKING tragedy, but let's say I've spent a Thanksgiving in a gas mask thanks to some chemical reactions in the sink due to a clogged garbage disposal.

Indian Chicken Curry (Murgh Kari)
I've eaten curry... I mean like real curry from India. This was great! I would scale back the ginger a *tiny* bit, but this was perfect. I chickened out, and put a little less cayenne in... Don't. This recipe, besides lowering the ginger by just a hair, is what I would say is a great Indian curry. Don't change it. I can't say enough about it...

Meatball Nirvana
Perfect meatballs. I don't use these for my italian dishes (family recipe, sorry), but for meatball subs or snack trays, they're amazing.

Penne with Chicken and Asparagus
Maybe it's our non stick pan but cooking the chicken took a lot longer then we expected.
