About this Cook
I love to cook all types of ethnic foods,and love to try new things. I used to run a pub kitchen back in the 80's before I got into my present job.I enjoy making and sharing a good meal at home with my husband and our friends.
My favorite things to cook
Everything. If we've had it out at a restaurant I have tried making it at home. Greek, Mexican, Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese, Ukrainian, French, Swiss, East Indian, Italian, Japanese and I love making Sushi.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Spending the morning making cabbage rolls and then having time later to relax and enjoy our company. We have a steadfast rule, if you cook, you don't clean. (Guess that's why I always do the cooking). My Grandson Jordan insists on pancakes made from scratch,(he became my toughest critic at just three years old) so that is one of the newer traditions. He helps measure the first few ingredients then makes a bee line for his toys until its time to flip them, down the side of the grill and onto the stove and sometimes, fingers crossed, onto the plate.
My cooking triumphs
Dinner for sixty at the neighborhood rec center for a friends curling club. Baron of beef and roast turkey with all the fixings. They didn't have the budget for a caterer so I did the dinner as a favor. Went off with out a hitch and got to play kitchen hero, felt nice.
My cooking tragedies
Jordan, (remember him, the critic)wanted cinnamon buns. I had found a recipe for "Clone of a cinnabon",online and had made them beautifully the first time around. Somehow when I put the recipe into Word I missed the line with "2 room temp. eggs". It took me two batches of garbage (and a very sad little boy) before I went back to the website and discovered my screw up. Good thing we had him for the weekend and were able to give it another go on Sunday.He was able to take them home to Mommy the following day.

Chococonut Chip Cookies
These are the best! If you love coconut and chocolate these are perfect as they are. Soft and chewy with a hint of chocolate, they disappear almost as fast as I can make them.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies
These soft and chewy cookies are a big hit with our family and friends. i even get requests throughout the year proving they are not just for Christmas. They can be rolled in sugar and cinnamon like Tom Thumb doughnuts or baked as is.

Chewy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
This has become one of my standby, make a quadruple batch of cookies. I usually go heavier on the peanut butter though. Sometimes I leave out the chocolate chips altogether and place 1/2 a peanut in center of each cookie for plain peanut butter cookie, or, leave out chips and add cocoa to the dry ingredients. (they become penguin or reindeer poops at Christmas time.)Who doesn't love chocolate and peanut butter. Just don't flatten them. If you happen to have a 1 inch cookie scoop use it, such a time saver.
