About this Cook
I live with my boyfriend and four cats, and I love to cook for friends and family.
My favorite things to cook
Indian, Tex-Mex, soups, and stews.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I'm the first competent cook in my family, so there are no family secrets or significant traditions to be shared.
My cooking tragedies
The first time I ever cooked for friends, I tried to make Orange Chicken. I didn't have corn starch and didn't know why it was so important to the dish, so I omitted it. It turned out more like vaguely Asian orange soup with chicken floating in it.

Baba Ghanoush
Following the recipe exactly makes a good template for baba ghanoush, but I had to jazz this up with extra lemon juice, smoked paprika, and a bit of cumin. Not bad, but I know I can find better recipes for this dip.

Carrot Pineapple Cake I
I followed the recipe to the letter except for the addition of a tablespoon of pineapple extract added to the cake batter. This was a huge hit at the work function I brought the cake to! Will make again!

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread
I make this all the time for friends and coworkers. The only change Imake is to add a box of Pumpkin Pie Spice pudding (this is seasonal, so stock up!) and halve the sugar. I can't make this fast enough.
