About this Cook
I have cooked most of my life. I cooked the dinners and my mother did my laundry as a trade when I was in high school. Presently, I am appreciating other peoples cooking and adapting recipes to vegetarian varieties.
My favorite things to cook
Vegetarian dishes that non-veggies love
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas dinner. My sons both enjoy cooking too
My cooking triumphs
Home crafted soups like fresh corn and tomato in September.
My cooking tragedies
Usually the first time I try to adapt a dish I enjoyed in a restaurant
Recipe Reviews 2 reviews
Lemon and Potato Soup
Very nice soup. Low fat, Low calorie. Lemon is well balanced with potato so it's not too tart. This recipe is a keeper.

Asparagus and Mushroom Frittata
I made this for dinner tonight. I loved it. This is a terrific family supper or to take to a potluch. I used fresh basil instead of thyme and cheddar instead of Mozzarella just because they were on hand.
