About this Cook
I am a designer at an architectural firm. I live in a cozy brownstone with my family: Patrick the boyfriend, Rambo the rabbit, Henry the cat, and Vincent the bulldog. We are soooo busy, so fast cheap and healthy meals are a must! I am all about mixing a variety of healthy foods together so make something delicious like soups.
My favorite things to cook
Crepes Pesto (I am the queen at this) Guacamole Burrito bowls Lentil burritos Fish Tacos Cream cheese scrambled eggs with basil Goat cheese mozzarella and pesto grilled sandwiches Oatmeal cookies Carrot ginger soup Baked ziti
My favorite family cooking traditions
Pineapple pancakes with orange zesty butter for birthday mornings Gypsy Soup for fall days Chocolate bunt cake with cream cheese for birthdays Chips and guacamole in the summer with margaritas
My cooking triumphs
Just being able to plan meals two weeks in advance that are quick healthy and make my boyfriend happy seems like a good triumph to me. Although for the longest time I could not make good banana bread...that is not the case anymore :)
My cooking tragedies
Grilled cheese...all the time. I feel like the easier the food the worse it turns out.

Hard to believe, but many kids will be back in school at the end of the month. Get ready.
