About this Cook
I teach Baklava classes to make money to send girls to Math and Science (Techtrek) camps for AAUW.
My favorite things to cook
Banana bread, sweets, experiment with all sorts of breads, meats, pies, cakes roasts, I love to try complicated things and then see if I can "fix them" into new flavor I like better.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We through big Noor Ruz partys (Persian New Year) with full dinners for as many as 150 people. We cook all the food from scratch.
My cooking triumphs
My first year of marriage I through a party for 40 people at Thanksgiving. I thought they'd come and stay the night (most were coming from very long distances). Our water pipes froze that morning and I had to bring in bottled water. But it all came off beautifully-only to have everyone stay...for 3 more days. It wasn't til I totally ran out of food that everyone finally left. Yet we had a great time and everything went wonderfully. We just didn't have ANY water!
My cooking tragedies
Not mine but a favorite family story is about my grandmother who was a terrible cook-she substituted Sweetened condensed milk for concentrated in a chicken casserole-think carmel and chicken! We would take a bite and ask to be excused then meet at the restaurant on the corner leaving her to eat it alone. We were kids and she grew up in the depression! That kind of explains all!

Creamy Dill Cucumber Toasties
The second of my tea favorites this sandwich is a sure pleaser. Because of the cream cheese it's a little harder to transport, but still easy to make and fast to go.

Bee Lian's Rich Orange Cake
I have had so many compliments on this cake. It's so simple and best of all doesn't need to be frosted. A simple enough cake to eat as a breakfast cake yet rich enough to serve as an informal desert. Or put a dollop of whipped cream and some fresh fruit and it's all dressed up. A fabulous versatile cake.

Cinnamon Apple and Havarti Tea Sandwiches
I have made these for a fund raiser tea for a number of years now and they are always a hit. I eventually found the ladies requesting the same three sandwiches and this was one of them. Now when we need food I know what to bring. These are easy, transport well, but never last long-make plenty!
