About this Cook
I'm a freelance editor and writer. Mostly editor, but do enjoy writing as well.
My favorite things to cook
Comfort foods. Love making those.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Family style dining. I enjoy making dinners where we gather around for a couple hours, indulging, talking, laughing.
My cooking triumphs
Check out my pumpkin chess pie
My cooking tragedies
I experimented a lot in my 20s. Made a lot of really really bad dishes, but ate them anyway. Couldn't afford to toss them and start over.

Slow Cooker Borscht
Made this tonight with some modifications that worked out well. We had a huge container of leftover homemade (heavily spiced) tomato sauce, which I substituted instead of the canned tomatoes and paste. Because the sauce was so thick, I used a full 28 oz container of beef broth instead of the 2 cups. AND, I only used 3 beets as that's how many came in a bunch. It turned out amazing with plenty leftover for lunches and another dinner.
