About this Cook
Our home is happy, busy, noisy, with lots of hungry mouths. Human and canine. My daughter and I are vegetarian, the males all carnivores.
My favorite things to cook
Indian curries and soups.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love everything about Sunday dinners. I love the preparation, the aroma's, the busy kitchen, and finally the table filled with my loved ones.
My cooking triumphs
I make the best soups.
My cooking tragedies
The first time I made gravy, it came out very lumpy so I decided to strain out the lumps. I muddled up and poured all the gravy down the drain, leaving me with just the lumps. Despite what the local grocer thinks, scotch bonnet peppers can not be used instead of chili peppers. I think I saw smoke coming out of the mouths of my family.

Grilled Tropical Tuna Steaks
Amazing marinade. Just loved it. It was my fist time cooking a tuna steak, and I over did it. Hence it was too tough. I will try it again and keep a closer eye on them. The marinade would be fabulous with any fish. Thanks Kelly!

Chicken Cordon Bleu II
I was very surprised at how poorly this recipe turned out for me. With the fantastic reviews I had anticipated a sure fire success. I believe I followed the recipe to the tee. I do not see where I could have fallen off the rails, but I must have. The white wine sauce tasted nothing like what I have eaten in good restaurants.
