About this Cook
COOKING=PASSION!! ...I own a restaurant in Brea for 13 years now. Happily Re-married. 3 great kids. Heavily involved with my daughters basketball (she's my youngest). We have a 2nd home in the South.
My cooking tragedies
Since I love to cook, I am not much of a baker. My husband who is from the south- Louisiana, loves Pecan Pie. My first and only attempt to make it, I burned it.I mean really burned it. My husband never lets me forget that....he calls it : Blackened Pecan Pie! HA!

Spanakopita (Greek Spinach Pie)
This is a very good basic recipe. I added a few tablespoons of breadcrumbs to ensure it wouldn't be soggy. Used butter instead of the oil Doubled Garlic 1/2 tsp of fresh ground pepper 1/2 juice of small lemon 1/4 of nutmeg grated 1 tblsp of Worcestershire Sauce in lieu of salt 2 tblsps of chopped fresh Dill 1/2 cup of parmasean cheese tripled the phyllo on a 10 x 10 casserole dish Came out great!!! and very flavorful! Would make this again and again!!
