About this Cook
I am newly married and living with my husband and our crazy menagerie of pets in rural North Carolina... life is beautiful here!
My favorite things to cook
I love experimenting with my Mother-in-laws Persian, Pakistani, Afghani, and Indian recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I will always love my Bavarian heritage and work to keep up with the family favorites my Mom and Grandma prepare at home in Northern Minnesota!
My cooking triumphs
Making my first Indian dish, aloo bahji (braised potatoes with tomatoes and onions in a spicy curry). It was delicious; my husband even called home to tell his Mom about it!
My cooking tragedies
Too many to count, what can I say I'm a work in progress. (Although one instance stands out when I managed to catch my slipper on fire!)
Recipe Reviews 1 review
Cabbage and Kielbasa
This was very good; I browned up the kielbasa sausage beforehand but would have liked more potatoes! Next time I will double the potato portion since they break down during cooking. Thanks for the recipe.
