About this Cook
Writer, editor, researcher, librarian, musical tourist, coffee drinker, and friend of all dogs. Well, most dogs.
My favorite things to cook
Lemon Berry Mascarpone Cake, BBQ Pork, Fish Tacos, Double Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies (although I'm no fond of eating them!)
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother's Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge, made during the winter. She would take the saucepan with the ingredients outside to cool while she stirred like a demon.
My cooking triumphs
Baking bread for the first time when I was 20 and newly married (after never cooking while I lived at home); making chicken corn soup from scratch, including buying a chicken at the local farmer's market and cooking it off for stock and meat; baking a Lemon Berry Mascarpone cake for the first time and having it look and taste better than in restaurants.
My cooking tragedies
Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge made with chunky peanut butter. I made it for a work "thing" and it just wouldn't set. It tasted great, but drove people off with the way it looked.

Creamy Cheesy Scrambled Eggs with Basil
My husband is crazy about these eggs! I make it about once a week. It's easy and quick and puffs up beautifully.

Classic Spanish Sangria
There are many ways to make sangria, but I wanted a basic "jumping off" recipe for sangria I could customize. I doubled the recipe to take to a party where most of the attendees usually drink beer. The recipe worked very well and was completely gone by the end of the evening!
