About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Roast chicken.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas eve dinner - especially an old Buche de Noel recipe from a Gourmet magazine from the 1960s.
My cooking tragedies
While on an extended camping trip with my boyfriend I really worked hard one night to prepare a special dinner (on one of those tiny propane stoves). When I was finished I had a sinking feeling something had gone awry. Sure enough, I'd grabbed the wrong bottle of stuff when making the pasta sauce. Iinstead of olive oil, I'd grabbed hand soap.

Zucchini Bread IV
This is a great recipe. I grated too much zucchini and stuck more than 3 cups in - it worked wonderfully! Zucchini bread is one of my favorites and this one will be my recipe from now on.

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes
Yay! Finally a pancake recipe that is fluffy and makes enough for my hungry kids.

Peppy's Pita Bread
This turned out great. Fun to make with kids! One thing I'll do next time is make sure I don't overbake them. My son (5 yr old) even experimented with rolling some up with cinnamon, sugar and butter and baking at 350 for 15 minutes. Even those were yummy.
