About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Vegetables, fish and healthy deserts.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Chicken stewed in tomato sauce with grated cheese. Awesome served with steamed white rice.
My cooking triumphs
Stewed pork ham with celery in lemon sauce. Unexpectedly good served in a large family gathering. It may sound humble but was low fat (all trimmed beforehand) and gourmet due to the bite size pieces of meat and the stark green veggies.
My cooking tragedies
Semolina desert 15 years ago; I could have use it as plaster...never again!

No Knead Beer Bread
Excellent bread! My tweaks: 2 cups all purpose flour, 1/2 cup wheat germ, 1 cup stoneground whole wheat flour and 1 cup bread (strong) flour. Made a great looking - and large - atrisan loaf. No beer smell. Nice texture. Could have used a 1/2 tsp more salt to balance the sweetness produced by the ale.

Mom's Raisin Oatmeal Cookies
Definitely 5 stars for me since we are all watching our calories in the family. Very easy to put together, slipped right off the baking sheets and had just the right crunch on the outside, moist and fragrant on the inside. My - forced - alterations (just using up all my nearly empty supply jars): 1/3 cup veg. oil 1/3 cup packed brown sugar 1/3 cup unsweetened apple sauce 1 cup a.p. flour and 1/2 whole wheat looking for a tin to hide them or they'll disapear before the day is over. Great recipe! thanks for posting!

High Temperature Eye-of-Round Roast
I just made this yesterday - finally! - and the family is still raving about it. Nicely cooked on the outside, juicy and tender on the inside. Since we longed the "italian-roast-beef" flavor we used to have in our favourite deli back home, I went ahead and added powdered garlic and oregano. De-li-ci-ous!!! I had been looking all over the web for the cooking method that produces this very texture and it was here all along. Thank you for posting!
