About this Cook
Born and raised in Los Angeles. Since life has a way of taking over, especially when you have other plans,I now live in Ngunguru New Zealand. Away from the crowds and traffic, I now have green paddocks, wildlife, and a new life!
My favorite things to cook
Vegetarian, stir fry, desserts (of course!)
My favorite family cooking traditions
A variety of veggies, raw or cooked!
My cooking triumphs
I am a former award winning Wilton cake decorating instructor. My specialty was hand made icing flowers.
My cooking tragedies
Since moving to NZ,I have had to learn different measurements. I now have humidity (which you don't get in L.A!) It is very humbling after never having anything go wrong, to suddenly have to re-learn how to make bread!

Delicious, moist, soft. I stuck to the recipe. Baked this in an 8x10 pan. I loved this!

Spring Strawberry Spinach Salad
I loved this!The dressing is best when you use it immediately, as it will seperate.Because the dressing is so oily, I didn't use that much at all and saved the rest in a jar.
