About this Cook
Work-at-home mom, painter, total foodie.
My favorite things to cook
Cookies, soups, one-pot meals, and anything grilled!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Family tradition for the last 20 yrs or so: skip the greens, jowl, and blackeyed peas, must have Mexican on New Year's Day!
My cooking triumphs
The day I realized the importance of ratios in baking. After that, it became a lot easier to adjust recipes to get the textures I wanted.
My cooking tragedies
Let's see... As a kid the first several times I tried to make devil's food cake I didn't know what "fold" meant. Tasted good but was a little, uh, dense. And there was that one time I accidentally set the kitchen on fire...

Tortilla Filled with Lunchmeat
Quick & easy. Easy to vary (must try herbed cream cheese, sliced turkey, red pepper strips & baby greens). For lunch at home we also like these with sliced or shredded hard cheeses, nuked to melt the cheese. If served cold, tortilla is optional b/c you can spread the cream cheese on the sliced meat (pat dry with paper towel first) & roll up. Both ways are good sliced into pinwheels for party food.

Banana Peanut Butter Bread
Excellent. As suggested by previous reviewers I add vanilla, extra pb, and extra bananas. Also usually bake as muffins, 20 - 25 minutes. My kids love them, always a hit.

French Onion Soup with Celeriac
Recipe submitter popping in to say, fresh fennel would change the flavor quite a bit but would probably be a great addition. Might add to immune boosting too, same with anything in the onion/garlic family. Celery root is a big round ugly lumpy beige root, usually about the size of a grapefruit. It's a specialty veg, might have to ask your store to order. Can be kind of expensive -- I usually only buy it for holidays -- but it's a nice addition to soups and mashes.
