About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love foods with bold, exotic flavors. I like experimenting with colorful veggies, whole grains and wild fish! I also love to bake cakes, cookies and muffins to share with my friends and family.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year on Labor Day my parents host a huge party complete with several barbequed turkeys. My sisters, grandmothers and parents and I prepare the birds and stuff them with sage, celery, garlic etc. I love prepping the birds with them!
My cooking triumphs
Perfecting my Uncle's Peanut Butter cake and Judy's Petite 10 Layer Chocolate cake. My favorite flavorful dish to cook is Tempeh Ratatouille.
My cooking tragedies
Once I tried to make traditional hungarian goulash and had the heat up too high... I used smoked paprika and kept admiring the "smoky aroma" emitting from the stove. Little did I know that the aroma was the goulash actually burning and fusing to the bottom of the pan! Happily, I was able to salvage some of the goop and create a different kind of stew.

Tomato-Mint Quinoa Salad
Wicked good! I added a little cilantro to this and used cherry tomatoes (like others suggested). I also used fewer radishes as I am not a huge fan. What a refreshing salad with some great flavors!

Tomato-Curry Lentil Stew
Great soup base! I will definitely try it with potatoes. I liked that there was no oil involved.
