About this Cook
I am a mom of 2 kids who love to "help" in the kitchen. My oldest is actually doing pretty good (although we've had to throw out a couple of batches of corn bread). It's a really cool thing - I got my love of cooking from my parents (both professional cooks), and now my kids are leaning from me.
My favorite things to cook
Ethnic foods, breads and desserts - but I'll make just about anything anyone askes me to. I like to try new dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holidays - No matter the holiday, my parents have always tried to make somthing special around that holiday. Including green corned beef for St. Patty's day. I've tried to continue the tradition with my family.... Just not the corned beef sence I married into a vegitarian family! :)
My cooking triumphs
When I had someone offer to pay for one of my pies! It just made my day :) It's also got me thinking that I might be able to make a bit of a living selling pies professionally....
My cooking tragedies
Lazagna that I made for my Whole family (in-laws included) when they were out for Thanksgiving. Still not sure what I did wrong, but I've made two batches sence then and they turned out great. I even had a mom tell me that it had to be good because her teenage son who does not like lazagna had gone back for seconds :)

Orange-Ginger Tofu Triangles
Very flavorful! Would like to find a way to increase the orange flavor though.

BBQ Turkey
I'm only giving this recipe 4 out of 5 because the only thing I actually used this recipe for was for cooking directions. I have never BBQ'd a bird before and wanted to know the basics. The BBQ instructions worked beautifully and my turkey looked marvelous (and tasted marvelous too thanks to the brining treatment I gave it). Next year I will probably try the recipe in total and be able to give it a more comprehensive rating.

Jeanie's Falafel
Very yummy. I did add 2 eggs to the mix to help it hold together better.
