About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Lately, bhoni bindi (Easy Indian Style Okra, on this site) and chicken tikka masala (also on this site, both really wonderful recipes).
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making goat cheese mashed potatoes at holidays or other times we just feel like some decadent mashed potatoes! Then, using the leftovers to make potato pancakes.
My cooking triumphs
Lately, adding fresh basil leaves to spinach when sauteeing. Really nice!
My cooking tragedies
Focacta stuffed shells. Something went off with my chicken. Bleh.

Easy Weeknight Bacon Mac 'n Cheese
This recipe takes more steps and more pots and pans than an "easy weeknight" dish should. It uses too many packaged TM'ed industrial food products, and not enough fresh ingredients for my taste. I gave it a try but found it too bland, despite all the work/steps, and won't make it again.

Upside-down Ham and Cheese Quiche
Recipe error - step 1 says to cook the potatoes to make the quiche shell, but then step 4 says add the potatoes to the egg and cream?! I only realized this during cooking. Dur. But I had only used about 3/4 of one 20-oz package of hash browns. Usually I use 3 eggs and 1 cup of cream in my quiches, so this seemed like a very small amount and didn't really make up a quiche, more like a pie - and I still don't know what it would have been like had I added potatoes in step 4. Also, needs more seasoning, like onions, salt and pepper.

Sweet Chili Lime Chicken with Cilantro Couscous
This is a tasty recipe even when the amounts of soy sauce and sugar are reduced, and is a good foundation for customizing your own sauce (and for me, adding some veggies).
