I joined Allrecipes back in 2001.  Not long after that, I found a recipe for pita bread.  Now if you have had GOOD pita bread, you know that the stuff you buy in the grocery store is not even in the same league.  Still, it sounded a little intimidating to make my own, so the recipe languished… MORE

About this Cook
I love to cook when I have the time, but when I don't, I like delicious things that I can get on the table quickly. I am married to a wonderfully adventurous eater, but we are sometimes limited by our two teenage daughters. The older one eats mostly pescatarian, and has encouraged us to eat organic foods whenever we can. She will eat almost anything other than meat. The younger one is a picky eater, and has a laundry list a mile long of foods she dislikes. I do think she is improving however. I am hoping!
My favorite things to cook
I most like making soups, but I also enjoy baking and making gourmet pizzas. I love trying new recipes and don't make something twice unless it is out of this world.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Growing up, my family always made frozen pizzas on Sunday nights. Now, I have that tradition with my own family, but we make our own, from the dough to our favorite combinations of toppings - traditional to unusual.
My cooking triumphs
I have found quite a few recipes that I can put together in a hurry, but still taste fabulous.
My cooking tragedies
Soon after I was married I cooked a ragout from the Silver Palate cookbook. It was awful, and it seemed to last forever as we weren't about to throw it away and waste our hard earned money! We still joke about it.

Oriental Vinaigrette
Really enjoyed this on a salad of lettuce, carrots, almond slices and chow mein noodles. Used only half the honey as I thought it might be too sweet for me. It turned out just right. Picky eater didn't like, but husband did.

Asian Salmon
Nice, different way to have salmon. Very easy and cleanup isn't snap!

Steak Salad (Ranen Salad)
We enjoyed this salad and thought the dressing was fabulous! Vinaigrette with a smoky touch - perfect. My husband didn't like the steak "cold", but the rest of us thought it was very good. I used feta for those who don't appreciate blue cheese.
