About this Cook
I'm an executive assistant for a company that does battlefield training for soldiers and medical personnel. I love to travel and try new foods with my husband.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking for groups, so big pots of soups and stews, large cuts of roasted meats, and giant bowls of comfort foods like potatoes and squash. I also love figuring out how to make vegetables taste good for a rather picky household!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My maternal line has a history of Yule-time candies, and I'm slowly learning the secret family recipes for peanut brittle, fudge, and English toffee.
My cooking triumphs
Any time I make my own recipe and it turns out to be edible, I consider that a triumph!
My cooking tragedies
I don't really want to talk about the red wine/mushroom-topped steaks. They were, uh, underwhelming.

Turkey a la Oscar
Made with chicken thighs, and it's pretty darned good!

Tender and Easy Buttermilk Waffles
Added an extra tablespoon of sugar, but otherwise stayed true to directions. Turned out beautifully.

Different Chicken Divan
So much more flavor and texture than regular divan. Made this with leftover turkey, lots more broccoli, and served over noodles. Good stuff.
