I am a newly graduated family doctor, wife to a filmmaker and mother to a rambunctious toddler.
My favorite things to cook
Soup! And baking challah.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My father's apple crumble. A Friday night dessert and a Saturday morning breakfast.
Then, there's my grandmother's mushroom barley soup and potato salad that I've finally learned to replicate.
My cooking triumphs
Teriyaki beef. It was also my first time cooking beef and having it come out so deliciously was very encouraging. And challah!
My cooking tragedies
Some sort of avocado-melon pureed soup. My father liked it, and the rest of us gladly left it to him.
