About this Cook
Growing up in the San Fernando Valley I was exposed to a variety of ethnic cuisines and love them all. I miss the authentic Mexican cooking of the local tacquieras and the families of my friends. I will never be able to duplicate their talent.
My cooking triumphs
I cook for busy families and many have specific health or religious cooking requirements. When I can help take away some of their stress associated with food preparation then I am most satisfied.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread
This is perfect cornbread. Nothing else needs explaining.

Best Brownies
This is a good brownie recipe. The only advice I would give the author is to take the instructions to beat the batter out. A brownie mix should be gently stirred unless you want a cakey souffle. Add a teaspoon of instant coffee to "torgue up" the chocolate flavor.

Linguine with Clam Sauce
I liked this recipe. It was very good and easy to prepare. If you want a true taste of Italia, use a light olive oil instead of cooking oil, try fresh clams and don't forget lemon. I'm glad this recipe refrains from adding cheese (not authentic) but I'm sure tastes good to the American palate.
