About this Cook
I own a copy of Julia Child's "Mastering the Art of French Cooking"....though I have yet to actually attempt any of the recipes it contains. :) I am sharing this shameful piece of information because I think it explains me as a cook. I aspire to create something impressive, but time and money (or rather, a lack of both) keeps my kitchen stuck in the time-honored "Better Homes and Gardens" binder cookbook. I try to keep a vegetarian kitchen mostly, but occasionally my very non-vegetarian husband will request (code for "beg for") meat.
My favorite things to cook
Eclairs; My mother's "Spotted Dog" (bread pudding); Homemade soups; Cakes, cookies, and just about any other sweet treat that requires baking....
My cooking triumphs
In my early teens, I dicovered that I have a talent for French pasteries (eclairs, creme brulee, etc.).
My cooking tragedies
I once tried a breaded pork chop recipe that was doomed to fail from the start, because whoever wrote it obviously had some weird taste buds. I should have listened to my instincts and stopped when I read the main ingriedient for the sauce was chive and onion cream cheese....YUCK! My dear husband somehow swallowed two bites before I shouted "I know! Just stop eating, because it is too painful to watch. Throw this away, and I'll go get a pizza." LOL

Moroccan-Style Stuffed Acorn Squash
The squash itself was probably the best part of this recipe. The filling was all right, but there was far too much cumin for my taste.

Amazingly Easy Irish Soda Bread
While this recipe has potential, I would not use it again as written. I followed the recipe exactly, and the result looked like a mutated biscuit that was still half-baked on the inside.
