About this Cook
I just plain love food! Love to eat it, and love learning how to cook it!
My favorite things to cook
Dessert mostly, but anything new, or interesting. I love making themed meals, like all green food for saint paddy's day. I adore ethnic cooking.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite family food tradition is Christmas Day at my grandmother's. Every year the meal is a different ethnic theme. Over the years we have had German, Italian, Mexican, Jewish, Thai, Russian, Caribbean etc.
My cooking triumphs
Making my cheesey potatoes for the family I lived with for six months in Austria. I couldnt find canned soup so I had to make it all from scratch, and it still turned out amazing!
My cooking tragedies
I have made some pretty horrible cakes that sit in the fridge for days, completely untouched, and even shunned by our dog.

Home-Fried Potatoes
Flavor: 5 stars!! Yum yum restaraunt quality. everyone in the family loved them. Just gave 4 stars because the potatoes stuck to the bottom of the pan, and didn't get crispy on the outside like I had hoped. Still delicious though!!

Tzatziki Sauce II
Delicious & Easy!! I used greek yogurt so no straining was necessary, and a whole English, or hothouse cucumber (seedless). I grated the cucumbers on the largest side, and kept squeezing them with paper towels in order to get all the moisture out.

Easy Decadent Truffles
AMAZING! very easy too, just a bit time consuming. I also reduced the chocolate chips and sugar to 2 cups each. I split the chocolate base into 4 and made the following truffles: 1. Raspberry flavored dipped in semi sweet chocolate w/ white chocolate stripes (the most beautiful, and very tasty) 2. Orange flavored rolled in an orange peel-cinnamon-sugar-orange sprinkle topping (a bit bitter but interesting) 3. Kahlua flavored rolled in cocoa powder (My favorite, but a bit softer than the other truffles) 4. Vanilla extract rolled in hazelnuts (still yum but a bit boring compared to the others)
