About this Cook
My favorite things to cook the ability to make something decadently delicious also look amazingly beautiful.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Sharing cooking with the whole family and then enjoying a good meal over a good bottle of wine. Love baking with children. As a toddler, my son had a set of Tonka dump trucks, front loaders, etc. that he used exclusively for scooping flour and adding to my mixing bowl! Such beautiful memories!

Chocolate Crinkles II
Awesome cookies! I used Hershey's Cocoa and added about 1 cup of Ghiardelli mini chocolate chips to the batter. Rich chocolate flavor. Crispy outer layer with brownie like inner cookie. Very pretty to serve and give as a gift. Please do refrigerate the dough for a few hours before forming the balls and rolling in confectioner's sugar. It makes for much easier handling. I made my cookies slightly larger and got 45 from the batch. I baked for 11 minutes on second oven rack from the top. Perfect!

Roasted Vegetables
I was in heaven with these vegetables! Absolutely delicious! I cut the vegetables smaller and they cooked in about 15 min. less. Also added beets. Can't wait to make this for company!

Stuffed Peppers My Way
Absolutely delicious. Roasting the peppers gave them better taste and texture than boiling them. I used regular onion and feta that had sundried tomatoes in it. I will be making this again for sure!
