About this Cook
Been cooking since I was 10, as my mom is a mediocre cook at best and leans toward Midcentury WASP cooking.
My favorite things to cook
Depends on the season... Winter I start to crave stews, thick soups and tons of hearty dishes... Summer - it's defintely summer dinner salads. Fall - anything with pumpkin, acorn squash, butternut squash, rutabaga, parsnips, etc. All year long --- Indian, Chinese, Thai and also any gooey, thick, rich, chocolately and really dangerous to a diet dessert
My favorite family cooking traditions
We make Kaluha Cinnamon Rolls for Christmas Morning every year. We celebrate Pi day (3.14 - March 14th) every year with a meal of nothing but pies - dinner and dessert pies. Easter wouldn't be Easter without homemade Dolmades
My cooking triumphs
Buche Noel for Christmas every year.
My cooking tragedies
I was a newly-wed and for one dinner I decided to make Seafood Newburg for my husband. Since there was only 2 of us, I halved the recipe, but forgot to half the sherry. My beloved husband manned his way through several bites, before I tried my portion and gagged. Dear Hubby was too gallant to critize, but was very relieved when after one bit I declared the whole dish inedible.

Super BLT
Made the Recipe for a picnic style event. Got so many compliments. As I didn't have much time to make the sandwiches on the day of the event, I baked the bacon the day before. I also made homemade guacamole the day before - laying a piece of plastic wrap directly on guacamole itself (to keep it from browning) before storing in the fridge. Assembly the next day took only minutes. Sandwiches traveled well. Definitely worth making again. If you have the time, I definitely reccomend using homemade gaucamole.
