About this Cook
I love things that bring people together and that includes a meal around the table.
My favorite things to cook
I'm big on 30min or less for weeknight meals or "one pot dinners" as our family is quite busy. While I prefer fresh ingredients, ideally I like simplistic meals that fill the belly but not clog the arteries. ;) I'm big into ethnic cooking as well and being from Dutch/Italian descent that provides an interesting array of choices!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Over here, we ALL play an active role in meal making. Luckly I have excellent "taste testers" in my family. As long as I'm cooking, they are always looking for my latest and greatest! Special occasions are always fun as we tend to get an array of choices and our son gets right into the action with all of the table decorating!
My cooking triumphs
Quite a few. When the ask for seconds - success!....I rarely go home (or are left) with leftovers!
My cooking tragedies
I've had my fair share and learned a few lessons along the way.

Three Bean Salad
An excellent recipe!...just like one I had a few years back (but had lost) - so thank you to the chef who posted this! If considering subsitutions...I used a can of mixed beans and a can of chickpeas...left out the onions and used celery salt instead of the seed. Very minor adjustments as I didn't have the exact ingredients and not alot of time to throw it together. I've already sneaked a few mouthfuls in and it was only made in the past hour! ;)
