About this Cook
Let's see, can you say Jennifer is a challenge when it comes to eating - allergic to Soy, Dairy, Eggs, Nuts, and a whole host of preservatives including Potassium Sorbate, Potassium Lactate, Polysorbates (20, 40, 60, and 80!), Sulfites, Nitrites, Sodium Hexametaphosphate, MSG, plus the pink packets, the yellow packets, and the blue packets. You try to go out to dinner with all that and you'll quickly learn how to cook something more than spaghetti (no Ragu since that has Soybean oil and forget most Italian bread since it has soybean oil and soy lecithin, and oh yeah, no Parmesan or Romano cheeses either).
My favorite things to cook
Cakes. I have my own small business making cakes and breads. Of course, since most of my recipes call for eggs or cream cheese, I can't really taste test much of anything which does keep me from getting fat:)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making Christmas cookies.
My cooking triumphs
We host every holiday at our house - Easter, Christmas, Thanksgiving, etc. Never a burnt bird yet.
My cooking tragedies
Not mine but my dad's. He insisted on doing standing rib roast in '07 for Christmas. I told him to do it. He threw it in our oven. Hours later he declared in done. When we cut into it, it was raw. Everything else was, of course, done. So, he had to cut it up and throw it on the grill.

Pasta with Fresh Tomato Sauce
We make this quite often now. We use the Good Seasons Italian Dressing mix and use Balsamic vinegar for extra flare and color, rather than using a prepared Italian dressing. There's never any left overs with this one.

Easy and tasty. Great, traditional Christmas favorite. Tastes better than a Reese's peanut butter cup. Great right out of the fridge!

Acorn Squash with Apple
It's like eating Apple Pie without the crust! Absolutely fabulous and easy! We've found that with our microwave that we've had to adjust the cooking time some. We microwave the squash covered for 7.5 minutes on high and then add the apples and cover and cook another 7.5 minutes on high. We cut the apples into wedges that are about 3/8 inches thick. If you cut them too thin you'll end up with applesauce. Our young son was allergic to soy and dairy for a time, so we substituted canola oil and it turns out just as well as when we've followed the recipe with butter. We've also used butternut squash and it's just as awesome. Goes great with a roasted chicken or turkey.
