I'm a single professional that loves to cook, but doesn't like cooking for one. I been following a low carb diet for over 5 years (Curves diet plan) and it's been working. Laurie's low-carb recipes are my favorite! I get bored with the same recipes after awhile....So I'm always looking to add to my recipe box.
My favorite things to cook
Anything that makes the home smell good. I prefer quick and easy....because while I love to cook, I hate to clean. Once dinner is made I don't want to be in the kitchen any longer. :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love learning traditional Jewish soul food. Brisket and Matzoh Ball Soup. The student has excelled the master on those levels. My mother "kvells" that my soup is better than hers ;)
I love making holiday cookies every December. I become an elf and love bringing cookies to work and to friends and family.
My cooking tragedies
It was International Food Day my Freshsman year of High School and I made a French Silk Pie which was nothing more than chocolate flavored butter. It was the most vile thing I've ever tasted. Looking back I wish we had the internet so I could come check out other recipes before just following the one my French teacher gave me.
