About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I'll try anything once
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother was the baker. Knock your socks off baker. Still can't replicate her baking recipes. I've been striving to make my food, healthy, as organic as I can, good ingredients and tasting good. I refuse to use high fructose corn syrup, MSG, hydrogenated oils and other "junk" that is in our food today
My cooking triumphs
My first homemade spaghetti sauce, with meat, was a major hit over the years. Now I don't eat meat, so then making a vegetarian version was my major success. Took years. I'm very proud of it. Will work on posting in the future.
My cooking tragedies
eggplant - too much oil too much grease. love eggplant parmesan.

Banana Banana Bread
Without a doubt, the best and most simplest banana bread I've ever made. No changes and it always comes out GREAT! PS: I freeze my bananas when the get overripe, intensifies the flavor even more - 7 mediums bananas equal 2 1/3 cups bananas - THUMBS UP

Pesto Sauce
EXCELLENT!!! Simple and the taste was magnificent. I made extra (minus the cheese) and froze it in ice cube trays. Store it in a freezer bag/container. Ready to go for sauces or just thaw and add cheese after. Cheese doesn't freeze well
