About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love baking - cookies, pies, cakes, breads. I love healthy delicious vegetarian dinners - lentils and beans with leafy greens and grains, but the family likes straight-forward meat and starch - separate and not touching.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I always make a lovely and delicious Christmas eve meatpie in the French tradition. Eggnog, cookies and gingerbread houses are other Christmas must-makes. And every Saturday is pizza!
My cooking triumphs
Samosas! I once made an interesting Christmas-tree-shaped cake - vertically Christmas-tree-shaped!
My cooking tragedies
Oh, there have been a few, but who remembers those?
