    It started with a simple tickle to the nose. Nothing to worry about since I was neck deep in a closet on a Friday afternoon. There is so much junk to sort after kids are grown and one wants to clear space or simplymake money in a yard sale. Sneezing from dust all morning I… MORE

About this Cook
I successfully raised three kids, newly a grandmother and feel as comfortable in a kitchen as I do breathing.
My favorite things to cook
Impossible to name any one thing!Pasta and roasted veggies seem to take top billing in this house. I enjoy cooking things that others like eating!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Rolled sugar cookies at Christmas/ Dad's spaghetti when I miss him or on his birthday./ Waldorf Salad on the 4th of July and Thanksgiving./ Chili on Halloween/ Black-eyed peas on New Year's Eve/ Pralines in the winter time after pecan season starts./ Veggie stew on cold winter nights with a side of sourdough bread.
My cooking triumphs
I recently figured out how to use the wood stove so I could cook some VERY old family recipes and am working on simplified modern versions I can share with others who have wood stoves and do not want to use the electricity or gas of their ovens.
My cooking tragedies
I poured an entire container of salt into a batch of my mom's cookies when I was 3 yrs old, but since then....I do not think I really have had anything fail or burn beyond recognition, or even be hated by anyone.

Fish Tacos
Wow! I so enjoyed this recipe. It reminded me of the yummy fish tacos I used to get in San Diego.

Italian Chocolate Cookies
Oh my gosh, I am so excited about this! I had almost this very cookie at a shop in Lugano, Switzerland and in this other little Italian eatery. The only obvious difference was that each cookie was wrapped around a whole toasted hazelnut or almond in the European version. Nonni adores these! Great recipe! Definitely Italiano!

Afghan Tomato Soup (Aush Goshti)
Simple, nice zip to it thanks to the chilli paste(be careful with that by starting out with half the amount and then adjusting it). Wouldn't change a thing. The lemon juice adds a lovely clarity and freshness to the flavors.
