About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking anything. I'll try any recipe at least once.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Irish, Southern, Italian and Germanic-style influences my families cooking traditions.
My cooking triumphs
I love inventing recipes or tweaking existing ones to make them my own.
My cooking tragedies
In all the years I have been inventing recipes, only one didn't turn out the way it should have--a frozen chocolate silk pie with Irish Cream liqueur. I must have added too much liqueur, because the pie wouldn't freeze and ended up a runny mess. All of which was served at a Christmas dinner party! There's nothing worse than a public recipe disaster.

Cranberry and Cilantro Quinoa Salad
Very delicious! I use this as a lunch salad with chicken breast or albacore tuna. I omitted the cilantro and used chopped black walnuts & sliced scallions instead of the sliced almonds & red onion. I also added some extra Madras hot curry powder to my taste and steamed the quinoa. Otherwise, I didn't change a thing. I really like that it is low in sodium and fat. Thanks for sharing.

Gooey Butter Cookies
I chill the dough for 2 hours before shaping and baking. I used anise flavoring instead of the vanilla to make an Italian version.

Best Ever Banana Bread
This bread just is NOT the "best ever" banana bread. I have been baking for over 38 years now and have never had my banana bread doughy and undone in the center as this recipe produced. I had been baking breads before this one (my recipes) and they all turned out well except this one, so it was not the oven. I even tried it twice adding more time with the same effect-putting a foil tent over top to keep from getting too dark.
