Summer, Day 16: Last night I decided to round the gang up for a movie night at my house. My summer internship with Environment America has been incredible, but it's left me with little time to spend with friends. I wanted to hang out one last time before people started to leave for various… MORE

Summer, Day 10: Today my dad left on his business trip to Central Asia. He'll be gone for a whole week, and though he's promised to email every day, the house is going to be awfully quiet. My brother is still in touring Europe with friends in post-graduation glee, so it's just going to be… MORE

Summer Vacation, Day 4: I'm in heaven. Or at least, this is what heaven would be like if its air conditioning broke. A tad humid, but still so amazing I can't help but pinch myself every so often. I've been spending my time wisely; eating, reading, and sleeping to my heart's content. I'm… MORE

What do you do get when you mix a french-jewish mother, 5 house guests, and memorial day weekend? Way too many leftovers. Notably among the lesser dessert category (processed, pre-packaged things like cookies, which couldn't contend with their home made comrades). It's taken all of 3 days to… 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.
