About this Cook
I'm half Iowan, half southern, 100% kung fu badass. I'm a cat lover who can't resist a wine tasting event.
My favorite things to cook
Asian and Indian. They smell amazing!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom's sage and onion stuffing at Thanksgiving.
My cooking triumphs
A number of years ago when my best friend told me I could teach the chefs in town a few things about how to cook a steak medium.
My cooking tragedies
When I made a sauce and my husband said "Yuck." He spent the next week healing the wounds in his hand from my fork.

Tomato Soup I
Easy and delicious recipe that should encourage anyone to stop buying those nasty condensed soups at the grocery store. A few comments: I found 2 cups of cream to be too much and I only ended up adding about half of that; it was plenty creamy. Also, I did not add the sugar. America is so over-sugared and I didn't miss a thing by leaving it out. It was sweet enough just from the tomatos. And do yourself a favor and use real butter - bugs won't even eat margarine ;) Although not necessary, I did buzz it with my stick blender so it wasn't quite so chunky. Someone else had commented about tempering the cream to avoid it curdling and that was an excellent tip.

Russian Salad Dressing
Excellent! Spouse can't take raw onions so I had to sub onion powder, unfortunately. He still raved about it!
