About this Cook
Community Health Worker by day and artist by night (for now). I spend most of my free time being creative: writing, painting, cooking, baking, jamming.
My favorite things to cook
Jams, jellies, marmalades of almost any kind. Cookies, of course! Home made soups--once you go home made you never go back. For main meals, I like to explore, but some old standbys of mine are stuffed peppers, spinach lasagna, cabbage rolls (I'm Hungarian and like the traditional recipes), chicken paprikas, sheppard's pie, glazed meatloaf, maccaroni and cheese in the oven, beef tenderloin, and pork ribs.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My cooking triumphs
Beef tenderloin with carrot and parsnip ragout, the perfect chocolate chip cookie, apple butter BBQ sauce, killer stuffed mushrooms, I-didn't-fail-at-it pie crust, glazed bison meatloaf, pavlova, and the perfect brownie. A personal collection of 200 high quality recipes to pass on to my family as I age, tried and tested over the years from 500+ recipes.
My cooking tragedies
. . . are many, but that's part of the process.

Maria's Broccoli Rabe
Wow!! :D didn't have parmesan. Still great. Used like 3 garlic cloves. You could cut the oil down to 3 tbsp. Could be awesome with a bit of soya sauce or balsalmic vinegar thrown in after the garlic.

Sun Dried Tomato Pesto (no nuts)
Really great recipe. Used 3/4 tbsp. garlic and found it just right (you know that kind already minced in the jar). Deep and rich flavour. Served it over toasted baguette slices (thin) Don't really think you need to change anything. But I am curious how a little wine or balsalmic would play into it. Also wondering how it would taste with a little pine nuts. Some things to try later. But, seriously, really great recipe as is.

Krista's Sticky Honey Garlic Wings
Fabulous, except . . . Cut the soya sauce in half, otherwise it's too Teriyaki-type falvoured. I made one set with no soya sauce and it was great as well, just a nice sweet honey garlic vs. tangy honey garlic with the soya sauce. Neither time, did I mix the extra 3/4 cup of water in with the cornstarch; I just used some of the hot sauce, as I felt there was enough water in this recipe and I wanted to max the flavour. Also, pouring the sauce over the wings wastes a lot of sauce. I dunk the wings in the sauce and then bake 10 minutes, redunk again with the rest of the sauce and finish baking. Then the wings are nice and saucy and the least amount of sauce is wasted on the pan. I put a layer of tinfoil down and spray it with Pam. Then they don't stick to the pan much, if at all. Definitely a keeper recipe!!!
