About this Cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family is Dutch so I love the rich and hearty foods. We make a dish called Hotspot which is potatoes mashed with carrots, sausage, and onions.
My cooking tragedies
My biggest cooking tragedy was when I was dating my now-husband. He is an amazing cook, so I wanted to impress him, but I'm not a natural. He came over to my house and I tried to make a kind of chicken marsala. The chicken dried out while it was cooking, the sauce tasted strange, and the vegetables I served with it were freezer-burned! It was pretty bad, but he married me anyway, and some of his cooking skills have rubbed off :)

Easiest Eggplant
The first time I made this, it didn't turn out at all. I'm not sure what I did, though it may be that I used the seedy part of the eggplant so it was really mushy. I fried the leftovers in oil and put them on a bun that I had topped with parmesan cheese and broiled. I added a piece of fried ham to the sandwich. The tweak worked, they were much better!
