About this Cook
I have always loved cooking, and I have been a chefs apprentice and cooked in country clubs and hotels. But now my cooking is stictly for my family and entertainment. I get so much joy from people enjoying my food.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake...but I also love to do ethnic dishes, cuban, mexican, thai!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom spent 6 months in England before I was born. I have always loved making toads in a hole.
My cooking triumphs
When I was 12 I successfully made a souflee on my first attempt
My cooking tragedies
When I was 6 years old my mom let me experiment. I tried to make muffins, and just kept adding ingridents. It got so late that I had to resume my recipe the next day. It took the muffins over 2 hours to cook, and they tasted awful!

Red and Green Christmas Jalapeno Jelly
I had never made jelly...yet I wanted a shelf stable item to give out during the holidays. Everyone who received one compliments me and asks for more. Even a year or more after I gave it to them.

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust
This is my go to recipe. I have it memorized, and make it at least twice a month. You can do all sorts of stuff to it as well, change it to whole wheat, press it out and let it rise again....then press it out again and you have a thin crust. I cook on a pan until 5 min are left, then I slide it directly onto the rack.

Easy Pancakes
I was not very impressed with these pancakes. They are easy...but they lack personality.
