About this Cook
i love to cook and try out new recipes. particularly ones from other cultures. i have a weakness for spicy food and seafood. i have a strong interest in vegetarian dishes and tend to cook mostly vegetarian because it's easily affordable. but if there's a good sale on you can bet i'll be at the seafood counter.
My favorite things to cook
i have a love affair going on with eggplants and artichokes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
my family doesn't have any real cooking traditions
My cooking triumphs
baking a 3 layer, german chocolate cake from scratch is definately one of my high points. and it came out great too! I've also done hand made coconut creme filled chocolates. those were such a bother to do, but i accomplished it.
My cooking tragedies
let's not linger there.

Concord Grape Pie I
the recipe is unique and surprisingly tart. i use the wild concord grapes from my backyard so that might be why. the filling came out runny though, in a thick sauce kind of way. this was after adding a handful of extra flour and a spoonful of cornstarch. also, with the 5 cups of grapes, the filling settled leaving a gap between the filling and the top crust. next time i think it might be best to double the amount of grapes and add more flour/cornstarch.
