About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake bread and desserts. I also enjoy preparing vegetarian dishes for non-vegetarians, just to show them a good meal does not have to include meat.
My favorite family cooking traditions
In the process of developing some with my son and partner.
My cooking triumphs
Cinnamon rolls, several cheesecakes, eggs benedict with home-made hollandaise sauce, home-made ravioli and a couple of filet mignons.
My cooking tragedies
A few filet mignons, 'broken' hollandaise sauce (while the guests were waiting at the table) and home-made mac & cheese.

Baked Asparagus with Balsamic Butter Sauce
The family loved this! I was told to save this recipe 'for company'. I followed the previous suggestions of browning the butter, decreasing the soy sauce & increasing the balsamic vinegar. They added some aged gouda (it's their favorite cheese this week), but they like to add that to everything and I think it would have been a hit without the cheese.

Refried Beans Without the Refry
Great recipe and so easy! I removed all the onions and peppers, prior to mashing the beans, pureed them with a little of the remaining water and added them back to beans and mashed. I didn't want to lose all that flavor, but my family wouldn't eat them if they were too chunky. I used the leftover cooking water for some rice, and it was soooo good. A great companion for the beans. Thanx for posting the recipe.

Seven Layer Tortilla Pie
This recipe is great! I've made this several times and each time you can do something a little different. My husband likes taco meat added to his. I'm a vegetarian so I like fake taco meat or soyrizo, and any vegetable(s) I have in the house. Try pouring a can of your favorite enchilada sauce over the top before baking, yum!
