We ate at our favorite Tex-Mex restaurant last Saturday.  One of the things I love best about them is that they can cater to my distaste for all things cilantro.  Yes, I am one of those genetically disposed to dislike cilantro in anything and I can detect even the smallest amount.  For Cinco… MORE

About this Cook
I absolutely love to cook and to explore new recipes, ethnic options (Greek, Indian, Asian, Swedish, German, ...), and exotic ingredients. I generally adapt recipes to the tastes of our family. I can actually taste the dish when I read a recipe -- drives my friends crazy!
My favorite things to cook
Ribs on the grill with my special BBQ sauce; rack of lamb with mint and horseradish sauce; almost-flourless Chocolate-Raspberry Torte (my husband's favorite); veal piccata; anything with cardamom.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Swedish smorgasbrod at Christmas; finger sandwiches, shrimp cocktail, and special munchies for New Year's Eve and other special occasions; Steak Diane for my husband's birthday; Eggs Benedict with homemade Hollandaise for brunch.
My cooking triumphs
Christmas Eve smorgasbrod for 60 people -- all family and friends. My special Sweet and Tangy BBQ Sauce (I can batches to give as Christmas gifts). My Chex Party Mix (I create a huge batch at Thanksgiving and another at Christmas, using 30 cups of cereal, 6 cups of nuts, a half pound of butter, a cup of Worchestershire sauce, and seasonings).
My cooking tragedies
As a new bride I tried to make my mother's pepparkakor (Swedish ginger cookies.) The instructions said to "roll dough very thin." After several hours of rolling, baking, and piles of cookies I called Mom to ask just how many cookies this was supposed to make. She asked how many I had and I told her about 60 dozen (yes, 720 cookies)and I was not half way thru the dough. She laughed and asked how thin I was rolling them. The cookies were very good but I never rolled them so thin again -- it was supposed to make about 6 dozen! The first time I made Baked Alaska as a special treat for my husband I caught the oven on fire.

Rhubarb and Strawberry Pie
I love both strawberries and rhubarb, but this pie was a disappointment. The fillling was so running that slices could not be served and it was very pasty. I wil look for another recipe for Strawberry-Rhubabb Pie.
