I am basically a homebody who likes gardening, cooking, reading, crossword puzzles and my chichuahua mix, Cocoa; and my four cats: Beige, Happy, Mel, and Blackie.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to cook are vegetarian entrees with an ethnic flair, and baking desserts.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother was Englis and my father was Lithuanian, not very exciting cuisines.
My cooking triumphs
Eggplant parmesan, banana bread,
apple crisp, vegan stirfries. (Although I am not vegan). My partner and I are vegetarians and I frequently adapt recipes to be meatless.
My cooking tragedies
Irish soda bread, I always burn it; homemade pizza, stuffed shells (it was bland).
