About this Cook
I am a single mom to two beautiful teenage girls. I love to cook and bake. Trying new foods and recipes is something that I enjoy a lot. I am addicted to the "Food Network"!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake. I make cookies, cakes, cupcakes, pastries, muffins, pies, and candies. If it is is for me! I've taken all four of the Wilton cake decorating classes and loved them all.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I loved cooking and baking with my younger sister when I was growing up. Each weekend we would take over the kitchen and cook for the family. The only problem was the clean-up! I had hoped that my girls might do something like this, but
My cooking triumphs
Eggplant parmesan and roasted Brussels sprouts...basically making anything outside of my comfort zone and finding out that I really like it!
My cooking tragedies
I keep trying to incorporate sweet potatoes into my diet and find new recipes that I think might work. The tragedy is that as much as I want to like them...I just don't!

Chef John's Blueberry Clafoutis
Delicious! I will definitely be making this again. Here's a point of culinary trivia: Clafoutis is ONLY made with black cherries. If you use any other fruit, including red cherries, it is a "flaugnarde". Loved the prominent vanilla flavor along with the blueberry. So easy to make, even after coming home from work, to have for dinner that night.

Apple Tarte Tatin
I made this recipe exactly as written (including the suggested pastry) after watching the video. I think that anyone making this for the first time should view the video before beginning - it shows a lot that the recipe can't explain. Everything turned out very well and I was pleased. My rating is based more on personal preference, rather than how successfully it turned out. I gave a "4" because I found the Granny Smith apples a bit tart for my liking and craved a bit of cinnamon to add depth to the flavour. I will definitely make this again (SO easy!) and just change to variety of apple (Gala, maybe?) and add a bit of cinnamon. Thanks, Chef John!

Hungarian Goulash I
This is yummy! The only thing is that is a bit salty. Next time I will not add the last teaspoon of salt. It came out a bit soupy, so I just added a cornstarch slurry to thicken things up a bit. We enjoyed ours over pasta because my daughter doesn't like egg noodles. I might try it over spaetzle next time for a different meal.
