About this Cook
I love to cook for friends and family. Cooking is an art to me and I love to create beautiful and tasteful inspirations!
My favorite things to cook
I am a food adventurer. I love to explore new recipes and personalize them. I especially love Asian Fusion, anything Mediterranean including North African cuisine and Middle Eastern. I have a soft-spot for Southern style cooking and the wealth of Cajun and New Orleans style cuisine. I love to explore flavor combinations that are unexpected.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up in a multi-ethnic home with a Father who is a gourmet cook. The traditions I grew up with were German, Jewish, and Cajun.

Pumpkin Pasta
This was great! I modified the recipe after reading other reviews. I used 2 Tbsp. butter instead of margarine and made a roux from 1/3 red pepper, 1/2 vidalia onion, 2 cloves garlic (all minced)and 1 tbsp. flour. I added 1 c. each of half&half, chicken broth and pumpkin puree and let simmer on low-medium for about 10-15 minutes until sauce was nice and thick. I used more savory spices: nutmeg, sage, thyme, ginger, black pepper, cayenne pepper, (about 1/4 tsp. each-- a little more ginger and sage for my taste) to taste, and a pinch of ground cloves I added the 1/4 cup parmesan cheese. The last few minutes of cooking I added grilled chicken breast 1 cup diced (you can add more if you like.) I served over whole wheat rotini pasta...yum!
