About this Cook
I have been a member of a gourmet dinner club since 1984. My husband is an expert cook also but I am the baker in the house. We are extensive vegetable gardners and try to preserve as much as possible. We call it the '50 foot diet'. Trying to introduce more organic into our diet
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking what you would call peasant food because there would be more vegetarian choices. I use lots of beans and some tofu. Also love, love cooking with cheese.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas cookies. My husband is Ukrainian so we like to make traditional Ukrainian food.
My cooking triumphs
I make a mean pasta sauce. My specialty is Italian cooking.

Cup of Everything Cookies
I found it too be rather insubstantial...I liked the idea of using so many ingredients but found the cookie too fragile and crumbly. Maybe I would just use butter and no oil if I made it again.
