Love to cook, ride my motorcycle and belly dance, hang out with my alaskan malamutes - who feel the need to sit under my legs while I am cooking!!!
My favorite things to cook
I love greek cuisine, italian, jewish food, and making traditional New England comfort food. Soups and sauces!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother and I spend the weekend after Thanksgiving making all types of Christmas/Channukkah pastry (raspberry strudel, swedish tea cookies, soft ginger snaps, peppermint pattie cookies, etc) and cookies to pass out to friends and clients.
My other tradition was brought in by my husband, Matt. When we were first dating, he made the only thing he felt he excelled at - white chicken enchilladas. He won me over! Now every time he wants to impress someone, we make it together!
My cooking triumphs
I can finally make my own bread and pizza - it's been a long battle, but now I am comfortable with yeast. Soup seems to be my new forte, and low carb cooking
My cooking tragedies
Too many to list, but my husband says my stuffed zucchini recipe is weird. Some of the low carb things I have tried to create have been...well, unmentionable!!!
