With passover just behind us, I feel compelled to share one of my all time favorite family cooking stories. To this day my parents would chuckle knowingly at the mention of a passover seder. My older brother, having tolerated their whistful anecdotes on the subject long enough would simply roll… MORE

Hey guys, it's citygirl here. I wanted to blog today about the newest edition on my pet peeves list. What is it, you might ask? This new cupcake craze that's taken the nation by storm. I've been on Spring break all week and let me tell you I'm having a blast. We decided not to go anywhere this… MORE

Recently I've become well aquainted with the Travel Channel's Show "No Reservations." You know, the one where middle aged ex-chef Anthony Bordain travels the globe eating as many fuzzy little creatures- I mean meals- as possible. Not to say that his sarcastic sense of humor and unhealthy… MORE

Well guys, it's been a couple of days so I thought I'd hit you with another blog. There are many many stories to share, but right now I'd like to focus on one that I've always particularly enjoyed. You see, this is a story of love, scandal, and ratatouille. It all started at a 1980 political… MORE

Hey guys, it's chilly outside and cozy inside, so I think we know what that means: blog time. Recently, a development in the behavior of my guinea pig of three years, Pippa, proved too funny to overlook as writing material.You see, Pippa’s cage is located in our kitchen, adjacent to… MORE

After several months of wondering how and where to start my own internet blog, I've finally met my perfect match. Who knew All Recipes could double for Eharmony? This account in general was created so that I could slowly but surely coax my mother into writing down her hundreds of recipes,… MORE

About Me
I discovered this site one morning when I had been craving french toast and the family was not yet awake to help me out. Until that day I had never really known what french toast was made from. I don't think I've been this addicted to a site since my childhood Neopets obsession.
My favorite things to cook
desserts of course
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother is a french catholic who married into an old jewish family. As such, our holiday meals always consist of matzah ball soup and buche de Noelle; a truly devine combination.
My cooking triumphs
- poaching an egg all by myself - receiving the most praise from anyone who prepared anything for this year's thanksgiving dinner (I made a lovely banana cake) - preparing lunch for the occupants of an abused women's shelter in my neighborhood
My cooking tragedies
Omitting the sugar and doubling the vanilla from a batch of sour cream pancakes. Never has an attempt at healthy cooking gone so utterly wrong.
