About this Cook
I am a working mom with two boys. I enjoy cooking, but don't always have the time. I wish I had more of a flare for improvisation. That's what I like about the comments added to recipe reviews - it helps me see how others tweak recipes & I try to learn along with trying new recipes.
My favorite things to cook
When I have time, I enjoy making lasagna! Really! I think it's the linear nature of the recipe. (I know, I'm a geek!) I also love to make soups. Truly, I enjoy all kinds of food but don't always have the patience for long lists of ingredients, so my favorite things to cook happen to be things that are delicious yet simple.
My cooking tragedies
I actually BURNED brownies in the microwave once!

Fresh Summer Fruit Salad
Excellent! If you can't find fresh rhubarb, consider looking in the freezer section. I used fresh-frozen rhubarb & the sauce was as good as fresh!

Light and Fluffy Spinach Quiche
This recipe was delicious & easy! I used fresh spin & sauted it in butter with red onion. For the cheese I used a combination of mozzarella, parmesan & asiago. I think sauteing mushrooms with the spin & onion would be a good addition. Everyone in our group LOVED it!
