About this Cook
I am a happily married, working girl. My husband and I are both self employed, so I enjoy the challenge of trying to prepare flavourful & interesting meals with a hectic schedule.
My favorite things to cook
I really enjoy experimenting with new recipes and flavour combinations, as well as preparing dishes that I grew up with. I love to cook authentic German, Italian & Indian. Also, party food!! Think chicken wings, quesadillas, and king-sized nacho platters with guacamole.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love cooking together with my husband & entertaining friends and family. Homemade pizza parties, Chinese fried rice with chicken & shrimp and my own special (and famous) wonton soup. Plus I have finally mastered the family pasta sauce, braciole, veal and meatballs! (A very proud accomplishment).
My cooking triumphs
Every time I try a new recipe it feels like a triumph! I guess, homemade apple pie and chicken noodle soup. Any baked dish that involves pastry from scratch. Vegetarian dishes that my husband begs me to make. Old family recipes and of course, cabbage rolls.
My cooking tragedies
Turned on the blender once without top lid on properly, that was a mess. And I can't forget the grease fire I started the first time I tried making homemade french fries. I burned my eyelashes off ;)

Dad's Escarole and Bean Soup
I really enjoyed this! Only a few modifications...sauteed the garlic with the onion in olive oil, added some crushed red chilies and diced celery with leaves. Recipe doesn't specify, but it is very important (in my opinion anyway) to use product of Spain or Italy tomatoes for the best flavor. I served topped with freshly grated parm cheese and crusty bread. So simple and delicious! Thanks

Broccoli Beef I
Hubby really enjoyed. Substituted honey for the sugar, added crushed red chilis for heat and doubled the amount of garlic and ginger. I served it over rice. Will probably make again.

Lentils and Rice with Fried Onions (Mujadarrah)
I would give this 10 stars if I could!! I made as written, but while the lentils were cooking I seasoned them with a little turmeric & crushed red chilies. I also added a small amount of soya sauce when I added the rice. Served with plain yoghurt. It was delicous and smelt good while simmering. I had the leftovers today warmed up in a soft tortilla wrap.
