About this Cook
I'm a graphic designer and generally crafty lady from CT. I am hungry or have the munchies most of the time, despite not being raised in a home where food equaled love. My mom fed us well, but now that I'm grown up I realize that I really do have a lot to learn about cooking for others.
My favorite things to cook
I have always liked to experiment, but as the years have flown I have not made much time to express myself in the kitchen. I have found that I like to bake and invent desserts and drinks. I think blenders and juicers are wonderful machines. I also like to make apple-pear tart, and bake butternut squash and salmon. And I really enjoy making breakfast, especially waffles.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Being that we are days away from Thanksgiving, the first thing that comes to mind is cranberry sauce (yum!). I also like the fact that, many times, my mom would make something for Thanksgiving and/or Christmas dinner that we'd never had before, just for the fun of it.
My cooking triumphs
The first thing I made was a bread when I was 11 or 12; the whole family loved it. I think that's why I like to bake. It is something I feel confident about. In my teens I often made a chicken-potato fry at my mom's request. More recently I have learned to make a serious turkey soup which the family looks forward to each winter; that is a triumph for me because I make it without a recipe.
My cooking tragedies
One year I made a potato artichoke "thing" that tasted looked horrible and tasted ok, but not enough to really finish a serving. No one ate any of it- except me! I have to chuckle a bit when I remember that.
