About this Cook
I have a garden that I expand and add new items to every year. I grow herbs, veggies and fruit. I love to incorporate my plants into my cooking.
My favorite things to cook
It's easy to cook food that is bad for you. Of course it's gonna taste good, it's bad for you! I find it much more challenging and rewarding (in more ways than one) to cook healthy food with great flavor! I also love to use new ingredients.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Country ham for Christmas- ALWAYS. Also, who's ever birthday it is, they get to pick what the meal will be for the celebration.
My cooking triumphs
I make a mean white chili that gets requested frequently. I was surprised how fantastic fresh green beans, seasame oil and pine nuts are when stir-fried together. My fav dish would have to be Eggplant Ricotta Bake.....always a winner!!
My cooking tragedies
Once upon a time or two, I have tried making cheese sauce for pasta that ended in great tragedy.

Pet Cookies
I omitted the water and added a heaping tablespoon of peanut butter and a drizzle of honey. I gave these treats to friends and family that have dogs and everyone reported that the doggies LOVED them. I tried giving them to my cat, she wasn't interested.
