About this Cook
Married to a fantastic supportive husband for 20 years. Mother to a brilliant child who loves eating healthy.
My favorite things to cook
Just about anything vegetarian and experimenting with making different types of breads.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holidays - love the stress of cooking large meals and having multiple glasses of wine :)
My cooking triumphs
Organic sourdough bread with natural leavening. It took 3 months from starting the leavening to getting it to the point of just the right amount of sourdough flavor. The bread recipe takes the entire day to make.
My cooking tragedies
Raw garlic pizza and any type of pastry - don't have the pastry gene.

Halloween Fruit Apple Teeth Treats
Excellent - Thanks for the creative recipe! This is going to be a classroom Halloween snack and can't use nuts. Instead I used a knife to cut individual slits on the top and bottom and used broken white corn chip pieces for the teeth. I did a trial run and used a dilution of red food coloring, water and lemon juice to make the "mouth" red before I stuck the "teeth" in so they would show up better. My son loved it, said it was creepy and thought it tasted great too.

Simple White Cake
Followed the recipe had to double it for a 9x13 sheet cake and the cake fell in the middle - twice. I had fresh baking powder, do not live at high altitude and oven has been calibrated also have an oven themometer. I did follow others advise about thoughly mixing the butter and sugar, don't know what went wrong. Tastes great but sunken.

Strawberry Pie II
Great recipe, Thanks! Added a couple of turns of fresh pepper to the cooked berries to bring out the strawberry flavor.
