About this Cook
I'm a novelist living in Louisville, KY. I also quilt and dance, and I'm learning French hand sewing.
My favorite things to cook
I love meats and sweets. I'm always on the lookout for ways to make vegetables more palatable.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I make a chocolate cinnamon babka every Christmas using a complicated, difficult recipe that requires several hours to execute. It's absolutely worth it.
My cooking triumphs
I once made chicken tetrazini from scratch after I heard about its aphrodisiac properties on the Maury show. It took four hours, but my boyfriend did really, really like it.
My cooking tragedies
My sister's wedding cake. Thankfully, I ruined the practice cake and not the real one, but I did bake and assemble all three layers before realizing that the fishy flavor meant I was baking with expired oil.

Cracked Sugar Cookies I
Delicious. I love recipes with cream of tartar. Even better the next day.

Swedish Sticky Chocolate Cake (Kladdkaka)
Truthfully, I decided to make this because kladdkaka was served in an episode of the TV show Archer (Season 1, "Killing Utne"). I'm so glad I did. If you've ever wanted to eat warm brownie mix, this is the recipe for you. I sprinkle just a little powdered sugar on top right after it comes out of the oven and serve it with coffee or milk. I recommend eating it while watching Archer.

Spinach and Bacon Quiche
This recipe is delicious, but the ingredient proportions are crazy. Maybe if you really use frozen spinach and thaw and drain it, you can get ten ounces of spinach into a single pie crust, but who wants to eat frozen spinach? I use about six ounces of fresh baby spinach, and there's still enough filling to fill a pie and a half, which leads to my other solution: Sometimes I use nine eggs, two full cups of cream, a second pie crust, and just put it all in a nine by thirteen casserole dish. It's good enough to serve to guests.
