About this Cook
I am in my last year of medical school and am married to a filmmaker. I love being in the kitchen (when it's clean!), and spend a lot of my free time looking for new recipes to try.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
Chicken soup, hands down. Second to that, 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.

Favorite Old Fashioned Gingerbread
This was very delicious. I doubled the spices, used half applesauce and half oil (in place of butter). Becomes incredibly moist especially if frozen and then defrosted!

Salmon with Brown Sugar Glaze
For a recipe that simple, it was really quite good and definitely worth making.

Bar-B-Que Sauce
I marinaded the chicken for about an hour in this sauce, and then my husband grilled it up. Tasted delicious! I will definitely make this sauce again, and will also try to use it as a sauce for baked chicken.
