I live in Brooklyn, NY. I am constantly exposed to foods from all over the world. I have been cooking for nearly 40 years. In the years I worked in a church I was given many recipes from the ladies who were great cooks.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake cakes and pies. I love shrimp and grind my own horse radish for the sause. I am into spanish and italian foods. I like to make Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Pinapple Bread Pudding - Amazing, served at all the holidays
Mrs Rosenbaums Cheese Cake - Served at Christmas
Norweigen Oatmeal cookies - Served to anyone and everyone at Christmas
My cooking triumphs
Getting the best church cooks to give me their favorite recipes. Wow what a collection I have.
My cooking tragedies
In the late 70's I tried my first cheese cake and did not realize that it needed to be very cool before you opened the spring pan. I opened it right out of the oven. How funny.
