About this Cook
I used to have aspirations of being a spy for the CIA... but despite all my education and experience working with the government (FBI), I am living the good life right here at home with my husband, two boys, and two beagles.
My favorite things to cook
I love baking high-end desserts and cooking special, savory meals for my family.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have a Jewish heritage which includes a great tradition of good food whenever possible. We enjoy celebrating holidays and stuffing ourselves.
My cooking triumphs
The first time my braided challah wasn't lopsided. :-) The first time a dessert I made that looked like the picture when I was finished.
My cooking tragedies
My first attempt at cooking rice (when I was 11 years old) ended up with the fire alarm going off and some firetrucks, who just happened to be in the area, decided to stop by which created quite the embarassment when I answered the door. He opted out of staying for supper.

Sirloin Steak Dianne
I wasn't able to make this exactly as it called me to, but was still great and I am looking forward to making it again (with red wine, instead of sherry). It's a really nice "date" meal.

Cali's Sinful Creme Brulee
Awesome! My husband and I loved the crunchiness of the topping along with the sweet, smooth rich taste of the custard. And the chocolate blended the tastes perfectly.
