About this Cook
My kids are both in college now, so I mostly cook for just myself. When I get home from work, I cook things that are are fairly simple and quick.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake. Anything italian is always good - lasagna, spaghetti, meatballs and sauce and anything that goes with it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Growing up, I made these incredible filled raisin cookies that I got from one of my mom's old cookbooks. Now I continue with making a great pound cake and other cookies and cakes and love to take to friends or bring to work to have them taste-tested.
My cooking triumphs
Baking is the most fun for me. Although I do say that I could get flour on me even if there wasn't flour in the recipe! I love holidays, as its a huge excuse to try new things.
My cooking tragedies
Nothing really tragic, but lots of things my kids didn't really "care for" when they were younger! When they were little, my nieces and nephews used to love my hamburgers, as they were very greasy (or, as they said, juicy!)

Spinach Quiche
So good and very easy to "use what you have." I couldn't find herb and garlic feta, so I used Rondell soft cheese with herbs and garlic (very creamy) and I used a mixture of other cheeses I had on hand. I used a refrigerated pie crust, which I baked for about 5-6 minutes and then poured the mixture into it to bake for the rest of the time. Thanks so much for this great recipe!

Hummus III
Very good and very easy. I roasted a few heads of garlic and added a bit more lemon juice and paprika. I also added marinated artichoke hearts when I blended it. Thanks for the great recipe!

Cinnamon Coffee Cake I
This was very good and very easy to make. i was looking for a coffee cake recipe that did not start with a boxed cake mix. i only made half the recipe and baked it in a loaf pan. I messed up by not putting as much of the cinnamon sugar filling in the middle layers, so I'll know next time to add more. The cake iitself was very good. Thanks for the great recipe!
