Now that I'm an "empty nester" I enjoy cooking projects that are challenging. My husband and I love spicy food. I also cook for an elderly relative, but he's game to try new things, and eats like a horse!
My favorite things to cook
soups and stews. ethnic dishes of all kinds.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We always have a dish called "Charlotte Rousse" for Christmas. It's a formed custard in ladyfingers with lots of whipped cream in it and on top. Also, Jewish foods are a family tradition, like Knishes and hamentashen and traditional passover foods. Yes, we are an eclectic lot!
My cooking triumphs
Anything that is eaten and enjoyed!
My cooking tragedies
Dishes that become leftovers!
