About this Cook
I'm a married mom of 3 ,grandma of 5. I'm not retired, but I am fortunate that I no longer need to work. For the past 9 years I've been able to spend more time in the kitchen, reviving my love of cooking. I started messing..and I do mean messing in the kitchen when I was about 7 and have enjoyed it for the past 40+ years.
My favorite things to cook
I don't think I have a favorite. Every holiday brings out many old favorites, but I alway add at least 1 or 2 new things. During the week I can whip up a quick meal as easily as making a beef wellington.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We are a blended home, so we have Christmas & Easter..Chanukah & Passover. Needless to say I COOK alot of holiday meals. The kids ALWAYS pick the vegetables. Thanksgiving: the biggest turkey the store carries - at least 30 lbs, homemade apple/cranberry sauce, sausage/chestnut stuffing. Christmas: Standing pork roast w/wild rice and spiced apples. Easter: Prime Rib Passover: Pot Roast, homemade chicken soup w/matzoh balls, chocolate torte Chanukah: London Broil
My cooking triumphs
Beef Wellington something that scared the heck out of me. After making it once, it has because a monthly meal in my home.
My cooking tragedies
First time I grilled tuna, was almost my last, it was the only time my husband refused to eat.. took me out for dinner and we threw the fish AWAY..didn't even give it to the dog.

Coconut Cream Cake I
This cake is absolute heaven. I thought it was going to be a little heavy with everything it had, but I was wrong. I was light and refreshing.

Beef Wellingtons
I've made Beef Wellington before, so I tried this one with alot of caution. 2.5 cups of cream is much too much. The pastry took too long to cook at that temp. Recommend, upping the temp to about 425 and only cooking pastry for about 20 mins. You definately need a meat thermometer with this recipe, unless you like messing up beef at $16 per lb
