About this Cook
I am an minister's wife of 28 years and a secretary/caterer; 22 of those years my husband has been an air force chaplain. We and our three children have eaten our way around the world and learned the cultures and faiths of many peoples and have served the cuisines of many different countries. I've been to two culinary schools but have never finished a degree.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake breads and desserts. My favorite events to host or cater are heavy appetizers and desserts. I would say my favorite cuisine is Mediterranean.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My two sisters and I grew up helping my mother cook her Sicilian specialties and and many Eastern European delights for my Ukrainian father. Both parents grew up in New York City, and we were raised not too far from there. We were exposed to a broad spectrum of cuisines from an early age.
My cooking triumphs
I've catered some nice change of command ceremonies, small weddings, even a new house blessing party. They have all been special and excellently received.
My cooking tragedies
Can't think of any that I haven't been able to turn into something workable.

Blueberry Bars
We think this cake is delicious, however, a cheesecake it ain't. Nor does it taste like a cheesecake. It is a wet-bottomed cake, (in a good way) which keeps it moist. The almond extract gives the cake an exquisite taste along with the blueberries. I think vanilla may be substituted as some reviewers suggest but you'd be missing out; trust me!

Grilled Marinated Shrimp
Was enjoyed at dinner by four adults. We thought the amount of heat was perfect. The seasonings lean toward Cajun but I served it with the Italian dish Pasta Pizazz from this site. It worked pretty well ( with more garlic in the pasta, but that's another review.) Try this recipe, you'll not be disappointed.

Celery Salad
I prepared this yesterday for a potluck. Rummaging in the fridge I found two bunches of celery. Came right to to find a salad using a lot of celery. Bingo! Used toasted walnuts and cherry flavored Craisins. Delicious! Hubby said its a keeper!
