About this Cook
Love to cook-sorta-but hate to grocery shop--I love to find recipes with ingredients that I have on hand!
My favorite things to cook
Dinner type dishes
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite family tradition is going out for Chinese food on Christmas Eve--how strange is that? My whole life, this is what we've done and we are carrying the torch for my children to take over the tradition also :)
My cooking triumphs
When I made a real cheesecake I thought I had 'arrived' !!!
My cooking tragedies
Trying to cook for my family and sneak in things into the recipe and being found out later--with nobody eating the dish I had prepared!

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti
Super easy, and SO delish! I followed the suggestion and laid a towel over the loafs when they come out of the oven the first time so that they cool a bit slower and that worked great! I also used a non-serrated knife and I had no trouble slicing the loafs. The loafs to puff up a bit while cooking, so allow extra space between them so that they don't run together. I followed the recipe to a "T" and they turned out great!

Yummy Bok Choy Salad
Really yummy salad! I didn't have baby book choy and used regular bok choy instead and it worked great! One thing is that the dressing recipe makes a large quantity and it goes a long way... The portions could easily be quartered for a a full bowl of salad.
