About this Cook
I am a Bay Area native, that misses fresh crab, sourdough bread and dry salami out here in the Midwest where meat and potatoes and velveeta cheese rule.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook from simple to complex. Easy, fresh pasta dishes to more complicated, time consuming fricassees, soups and stews. My family, thank goodness, loves food from diverse cultures and I enjoy making them. We love sushi, lasagna, stew, piccata, stir fry, frittatas, croque monsieur's, seared scallops, pesto and the list goes on and on.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Gig family dinners on Sunday. Everyone sits down to enjoy the meal and reflect on the past week.
My cooking triumphs
Being able to instill in my four children the affinity to experiment with different tastes and textures in food. To not be afraid to try something new.
My cooking tragedies
the first time I tried to make eggplant, it was truly unpalatable.

Tacos De Matamoros
Made exactly per the recipe and it is wonderful. I personally would omit the garlic powder, but other than that it is a winner. Authentic version of a classic American dish- my mom is from New Mexico and didn't have a taco until she was a teen visiting California.

Polish Sausage and Pierogy Haluski
This was and continues to be one of my families favorite winter night meals. This is so easily prepared and is great just on its own or paired with a fresh green salad and a nice beer, makes a company meal as well.
