About this Cook
I am originally from the west coast. I am married with no children, and a hungry dog who lurks under foot when I cook. I like to cook to relieve stress as I have been a full time student and study a lot at home.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy cooking fish, and am always looking for restaurant quality recipes for seafood. I have been experimentng with fresh herbs and thai curries lately.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas Swedish Christmas anise seed sugar cookies with decorator frosting Fudge, traditional and marshmallow creamed Chocolate oatmeal drops Raspberry filled jam tarts Homemade donuts and spicy mulled cider on Halloween Easter bunny cookies with coconut marashino noses, and raisin eyes Canned fruits with whip cream-yes this is really good from my grandmother. Christmas eve cocktail buffets which I have taken on myself now. I do not have the perserverance to do the baking yet.

My cooking tragedies
I tried to make a chocolate cream pie, and wound up using 2 cartons of eggs to get enough whites for the meringue. Lesson learned: go slow when separating. Also, Dont accidentally dump all the yolks into the whites.

Baked Beans, Texas Ranger
my husband loved this and he is a Texan. i thought it was very good. I would rate it five if any of the heat in the dish was at the tip of the tongue rather than all at the end of the bite. I did add a pinch of the reccommended cayenne pepper and also 5 dashes of tobasco. Would more of these help accomplish an initial spiciness? I also wonder if it could achieve the tangy flavor without quite so many calories.

Artichoke and Chickpea Stew
Im not giving stars since I used butter beans instead of chickpeas. I would give it a 4 based on how I made it which was without oil, and with dried sage, and canned diced tomatoes. Mine turned out like a thick stew because by the time the carrots soften most of the liquid has evaporated. All in all it was a hearty vegetarian dish, but was a little boring.
