I love to Bake!
About this Cook
I'm a substitute teacher in Chicago. I used to be a comedian/stunt woman and I also used to be an aerobic instructor. I have a Masters, Bachelors and Associate Degrees in various majors. I'm a real homebody, but when I go out, I love Karaoke!
My favorite things to cook
I love to use my oven, especially in the winter. Slow cooking is fun, too. Outdoor cooking is great when I'm camping.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I like a lot of comfort food, but I try to watch my portions. I love to bake alot, so there's always a huge stash of various flours and sugars on hand. I also try to find meats on sale. Then I cut them up and freeze them in freezer bags in case I want to make a dutch oven stew in the oven (creamy chicken and leek stew is awesome!)
My cooking triumphs
Making gourmet French crepes, complete with lemon and orange butter, when I was 13. My parents ate them faster than I could make them! Also, I just disovered a great way to make sugar cookies using only whole wheat flour!
My cooking tragedies
The first time I tried to make Sushi. I'm still working on it.

Cinnamon Hazelnut Biscotti
I crushed the hazelnuts in a processor. Used parchment paper and put the sheet on the middle rack of the oven. I also used more hazelnut extract instead of vanilla. They're AWESOME! Seriously. My parents are very picky and they had 3 each! I'll make this again for sure!

Holy cow! I made two and gave one to my dog's vet! He's Indian and his family loved it!!! He asked for the recipe. I added a little more carrot and cinnamon. So awesome!

Middle Eastern Pasta With Yogurt and Pine Nuts
Holy cow! This was WAY better than I thought it would be! I omitted the pine nuts, used ground turkey and whole wheat pasta and added a sprinkle of parm cheese and lemon zest! Like I said, HOLY COW! Really great!
