About this Cook
I have loved to cook since I was very young. I cooked my own celebratory dinner for my family when I became a Brownie! I recently got married, so I can try many recipes with quantities that I could not consume when I was single! I am particularly known for my desserts, and created a banana cheesecake recipe that I gave permission to a caterer friend to use.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I make an Orange sponge cake recipe that has been in my family for over 100 years. Also, a Coco poundcake recipe that my mom's college roommate gave to her!

Elegant Fig Appetizers with Goat Cheese and Almonds
This was very easy and a really great combination of flavors and textures. I had 8 rather than 12 figs, and didn't alter the amounts of honey or balsamic. I went heavy on the herbed chevre (probably more like a solid teaspoon+), and used cashews, because we are not huge almond fans. My husband wanted to know if there were any more when he finished his, high praise indeed.
