About this Cook
former pro pastry chef, now learning to love regular cooking.
My favorite things to cook
Indian chole, baked goods, pizza.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom's kolachkies, the recipe for which I will never share. :)
My cooking triumphs
Christmas cookie madness every year.
My cooking tragedies
The little flower girl and ring bearer cakes I made for my wedding- on the way to the baker's house, a woman pulled right in front of me and I had to slam on the brakes in order to live to see my wedding. Unfortunately, the cakes didn't make it. And the really rotten risotto. I added too much lemon juice, and there was absolutely no recovering from it. My kind husband ate the horrible mess, though.

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes
Not at all good. These were way too thick. The batter as written was like paste. I made one small one to be sure (WAY too thick, not at all good) and added extra liquid. I used less salt than written, still too salty. One taster said they tasted metallic (too much baking powder.) And the other said they were too plain, and that was after I added a little flavoring to make them less plain after I tasted the first one. I used this recipe because I thought it was the one I always used which I lost track of in the flood. Based on the less-than-stellar reviews the girls gave them, I'm sure this isn't the right recipe.

Pumpkin Smoothie
Love it! Needed something healthy after surgery and this hit the spot- delicious, not too sweet. I used lots more pumpkin and lots less milk. Yum!
