It was 2 AM, and the house was deathly silent. My eyes were peeled open wide, but not a flicker of light could penetrate the darkness. I groaned at the thought of a sleepless night, and listened to the rhythmic beat of my own heart. Suddenly, a flash of light entered the room like lightening… MORE

If you know our family, then you know how important apricot season is. You also know of our extreme distaste for rodents, despite the pet guinea pig we keep so lovingly spoiled with carrots and hay. We live in a little townhouse in the middle of the city. Our neighborhood was once riddled with… MORE

Yesterday at school my best friend pulled me aside and asked in a low, worried voice whether or not I could keep a secret. I gave the usual good-friend response and said of course. She glanced around nervously and asked if we could discuss it in an empty science lab nearby. At this point I was… MORE

With so much going on in the world, it's amazing that I don't forget my own birthday every year. Yes, both last year and the year before I had to be reminded by family and friends that yes, I did deserve a slice of cake and no that pinata wasn't always in the living room.

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.
