About this Cook
I learned to cook well when a friend moved in with me and went to culinary school. We practiced in my kitchen together and it really sparked my interest to get really good at the culinary arts. I am still always learning and trying new things.
My favorite things to cook
Desserts, desserts desserts. While I love to cook everyhing, I think I was not born with a sweet tooth, but a whole mouthful of "sweet teeth".
My favorite family cooking traditions
I still make my mom's turkey dressing which is of course too fattening, but hey, it's only once a year. After being lost for years, I turned up my dad's second to none meatloaf recipe and it's amazining simple and void of fancy ingredients.
My cooking triumphs
I've created an entire line of deserts I've seen no where else when I had the bright idea of opening a pastry kitchen. That didn't pan out, but the recipes sure did!
My cooking tragedies
I'm certain that I've made the worst-ever sourbratten (Or I can't stand the stuff). I suppose the worst "tragedy" is when I was BBQing rib tips and failed to keep an eye on the grill. It errupted in huge flames and the tips were burnt to a crisp. Thank goodness, I had moved the BBQ away from the house.

Traditional Osso Buco
If there were 6 stars, this dish would get them all! I followed it almost to the letter, substituting veal stew meat, (becasue I had it on hand). I was prepping a few meals and this one was stored two days in the fridge (without the last ingredients) The sauce thickened on it's own. Served with Orzo. This was the BEST I've ever tasted!

Chicken a la Mayo
I took a few tips from the other reviews and made the dip the day before. I didn't have corn flakes so used a bit of cereal, almonds and unsweetened coconut. I added lime juice and a few tablespoons extra as the dip seemed a little thick. Even with pre-heating the pan, the coating got a bit soggy on the bottom, but over all it must of been pretty good because picky husband ate every last bit and was looking for more! Next time I think I really need the crunch of corn flakes, but I would keep the almonds and coocnut.

Great Hot Crab Dip
I read many of the reviews before I made this dip. I added a bit extra onion and double the cocktail sauce. I also added wasabi instead of the regular prepared horseradish. I think the wasabi added just the right amount of extra kick without the tang of "hot sauce". If I make it again, I will double the crab. All over everyone loved it! It only served 4 of us!
