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.
