About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love to make pasta and therefore I love things like ravioli, canneloni, lasagne, etc.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family is of German heritage, My mom used to make the most awesome tortes with buttercream - I'm gaining weight just thinking about them.
My cooking triumphs
My husband's favourite is Fettucine Alfredo - from is always on his birthday menu.
My cooking tragedies
More than once I have had chocolate seize when making truffles or ganache. I keep at it though and always make sure I have enougt to start over if disaster occurs.

Tart Lemon Triangles
This was fantastic. It was easy and I didn't change a thing and it turned out like one from a fancy French bakery!

Chicken Cordon Bleu II
I made this as directed and wouldn't change a thing. My hubby raved about these, expecially the sauce. Next time I would pound the chicken breasts a little thinner than I did and get thinner sliced ham, but that is only my notes. Great recipe! :)

Salade de Carottes Rapes
I thought this recipe was a little flat and it was very dry too! I will try it again and use fresh out of the ground carrots, instead of bagged ones. It may have been dry because I used a grainy Dijon instead of regular Dijon and will use the smooth next time too.....sorry!
