About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy making baked goods and whatever treats I feel like showering on friends, family, and coworkers.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I really enjoy that my family makes unusual Thanksgiving and Christmas meals when everybody is having traditional dishes. We've had Jamaican/Carribean, Mexican, egg rolls, lasagna, etc.
My cooking triumphs
I consider some of my accomplishments to be the many successful parties I've hosted or informally catered; in particular, my step-sister's wedding reception.
My cooking tragedies
The summer in high school when I wasted many dozens of eggs trying to make hard-boiled eggs for deviled eggs.

Authentic Enchiladas Verdes
I didn't follow the recipe exactly but the concept is awesome! I wasn't sure what to do with tomatillos, and this if fabulous!

Best Tuna Melt (New Jersey Diner Style)
lovely recipe, I've had melt sandwiches before but never made one at home, this was a great one. I left off the tomato since I didn't have any and switched out the rye bread for a sandwich thin and swiss for provelone. nex time I'll definitely try adding some tomato since it sounds nice.

Spicy Lentil Dip
This was only ok. Luckily I made a small batch because my husband didn't like it at all.
