About this Cook
Still working, mother of 3 grown children, 2 step children and a grandchild. I'm just feeding myself and husband right now, who will eat anything I put in front of him, poor thing. I love Julia Child, of course I can't eat that rich food anymore but I worship her, she's a doll!
My favorite things to cook
I try to keep things light so I won't gain weight. LOVE International foods, I find Italian the easiest and Indian foods very exotic.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I like changes, so during the Holidays, will try different things.
My cooking triumphs
When I'm able to just throw things together and it tastes good.
My cooking tragedies
I haven't cooked too many turkeys but my first two weren't fully cooked. Then my first loaf of bread came out flat and let's not forget the hockey pucks that should have been whole wheat donuts. I'm sure the list goes on and on.

Spinach and Mushroom Frittata
Liked very much, made it for a group gathering with a chili sauce to put on top. People raved, nice touch with the ricotta. I can't eat dairy, but tried a small piece anyway, didn't make any adjustments except the optional chili sauce.

Rosemary Turkey Meatloaf
Very good indeed! I'm trying to stay away from red meat but balsamic vinegar made it appear dark like red meat. I can't eat dairy products so used chicken stock instead and since I was only working with a pound of turkey, I cut down on the amount of everything but the breadcrumbs and egg. One and a half teaspoons of fresh rosemary and 2 tablespoons of brown sugar in the sauce. Very very good. Thanks
