About this Cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
Family hoidays--especially Christmas. The time spent in the kitchen preparing these meals for my family and having the surrounding good cheer is wonderful.
My cooking triumphs
A huge triumph has been changing my cooking style from only focusing on taste and comfort (w/o regard for calories) to balancing nutrition needs while maintianing excellent taste and satisfaction.
My cooking tragedies
For a year or so after I started living on my own I could not make a meatloaf--it would never fully cook. After a time I stopped using the traditional loaf pan and moved to a pyrex baking dish & voila' problem solved. Now my meatloaf is well loved in our home.

Mushroom Orzo
Awesome recipe. I probably used a little more wine and mushrooms. I also added a little bacon. Will certainly make this again.
