About this Cook
Normal married chick living in New York City. Busy professional. Loves my husband & cat. I live (yes- L-I-V-E) to travel & experience new things.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy making main dishes that are somewhat complex and time consuming. I dont do it often since I work a lot, but I really try to make an effort when I cook.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love cooking a big thanksgiving dinner. The standards are Turkey, chestnut stuffing, butternut squash soup, mashed potatoes, and butternut squash lasagna. The rest of the sides are always different. I also make about 4 - 5 different desserts as well as my standard Spiced Apple Cider with Rum.
My cooking triumphs
Thanksgiving. I rock.
My cooking tragedies
Key lime pie. It tasted like vomit. I also screw up at least one side dish at Thanksgiving. Always.

Healthy Turkey Loaf
This is a perfect meatloaf to satisfy those old school comfort food cravings. To make it a bit more healthy I substitute the breadcrumbs with 1/4C quinoa (and then I cook it) as well as adding another few tablespoons of uncooked quinoa to the mixture to soak up all of the juices. Wow, it tastes fab and has a totally normal texture. You dont miss the breadcrumbs at all and you have just saved yourself a bunch of carbs.

Sesame-Crusted Tuna with Summer Salsa
This is a huge hit at our house. Light, fresh and flavorful. The only changes we made are adding some small bits of crystallized ginger to the sesame seeds to coat the tuna. I know it doesnt sound good but really, it adds a new depth of flavor that compliments the tuna and the salsa. LOVE IT.

Apricot Chicken with Balsamic Vinegar
I made this dish for my husband who is very picky--- he loves complex flavors. This dish was very easy to make. I did two things differently-- I added more fresh apricots, all sliced in halves. In order to cut down on the sweetness I used only a very large dollop of preserves as opposed to a full cup and I added 5 cloves, the cloves chopped in large pieces. I also let the liquid reduce to an almost glaze-like finish. Was fab! Over rice pilaf, served w/ French cut green beans and this was a hit.
