About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Baking pies is one my specialties! Also yeast rolls and breads. Love any chicken dish and love to experiment. Soups are another fun food to try new combinations. I make a killer fresh salsa with tons of cilantro.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother's Christmas punch which has tea in good and absolutely mandatory every year. Crown pork roast at Christmas.
My cooking triumphs
Chocolate Raspberry Ganache Torte -helped raise over $250 in a bake sale raffle! Perfect potato rolls every Christmas. Perfect flaky pie crust.
My cooking tragedies
Grey, watery beef stew - we got subs that night! Garlic in the sausage gravy (with biscuits), my husband was NOT happy!

Spicy Spaghetti Squash
Simple and easy. Plus it tasted so similar to high-carb pasta! Great for my South Beach menu. My changes were to omit the capers and scallions (didn't have them on hand), switch basil for the oregano and leave out the turkey this time. Still tasted great! One tip - sometimes spaghetti squash can be wet, so you may have to drain it a bit (esp if you microwaved it with water). Otherwise you'll have a soupy mess.

Fresh Rhubarb Pie
Perfectly simple and delicious, no changes needed or made to this wonderfully old-fashioned pie!

Cornell Chicken Marinade
this is the BEST chicken marinade/BBQ baste you will ever find. I grew up in the Finger Lakes area and this aroma is something to look forward to! Don't bother trying to make this into a red type sauce, you'll ruin it.
