About this Cook
I love to cook! The best part is when folks ask for seconds. Then I know it's a success!
My favorite things to cook
Traditional, family foods. Nothing too fancy, but hearty and healthy. I love to experiment and luckily my husband isn't a picky eater.
My favorite family cooking traditions
All day cooking events for big holiday dinners. Ethnic foods from my grandparents were made growing up and are still my favorite comfort foods.
My cooking triumphs
Getting confident enough to experiment on my own and not needing measuring cups/spoons. Learning to go off instinct of what tastes good/how long to cook/how much to add, etc.
My cooking tragedies
Not listening to my gut instinct on a recipe and being disappointed in the results.

Strawberry Lemon Muffins
It would be better if the recipe gave an actual measurement for the lemon juice/zest. Since my lemon was rather large, the lemon flavor is quite pronounced. Flavor is good, texture very moist, but dense. Oddly, the muffins stuck badly to the paper liners.

Stuffed Strawberries
Honestly, this was quite easy to do. I used probably about 1/4t orange extract and it left a mild flavor. They looked pretty and tasted good, but not "knock your socks off."

Quick Super-Delicious Zuppa Toscana
Modified only a bit: 4C broth, 4C kale, half-and-half instead of cream, 1/2t each basil and oregano. Forgot the bacon. EXCELLENT soup.
